Georgia has deployed French air defense on its territory

31
The French air defense system has already been deployed in Georgia, Defense Minister Levan Izoria said on Wednesday at a committee hearing in parliament.


The agreements between Georgia and France on the procurement of the air defense system were signed in the summer of 2015. The minister visited France several times this year, where he held talks with colleagues on this issue and inspected factories producing anti-aircraft systems.

Georgia has deployed French air defense on its territory


We purchased technical equipment that is already in Georgia ... We will do our best to ensure that our airspace is more protected during the first phase of cooperation, and we are ready to continue work on the second phase with our French colleagues
- the minister said.

According to him, the second phase provides for the retraining of French officers by the French side, who will manage the air defense.

Earlier, the Georgian newspaper Kviris Palitra, citing its sources in Europe, said that France would supply Georgia with Mistral man-portable air defense systems under an air defense treaty. The French Mistral is similar to the Russian portable Igla air defense system and the American Stinger, but if the military can shoot the Needle and Stinger from the shoulder, the Mistral needs an installation, which makes its carrying less operational . According to the newspaper, the contract involves the transfer to Georgia of military vehicles on which the Mistral complexes will be installed.

    We take into account that France is the most warring country after 1945 and has vast experience in the design and operation of its air defense systems at the forefront of all modern conflicts. laughing .

        that’s what it’s for nothing, in fact French service men are the only ones who have kept the full production of weapons in Europe, they do everything, shooting, ATGMs, RPGs, tanks, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, turntables, planes, all levels of air defense, submarines, including SSBNs, and unlike us, they make their full-fledged aircraft carriers (although the latter seems to be under repair more often than in the service), they have their own rockets, that is, they have their own space, they have their own satellites, their own ICBMs.
        in the nuclear field, they are more competitors to us than the states.
        in general, in fact, the service jackets are the most serious techies in Europe, the deutsch come after them, and the Saxons and pasta are the second division in general.

          Produce? -Yes. And where is all this used? where are the reports "Leclerc withstood the bassoon getting into the frontal projection", do they have something fighting somewhere besides the arrows? Yes, and where I also won’t immediately call a shooter, well maybe. There are already a lot of disputes about the aircraft carriers on Vaud this question ..

      Keep in mind that France is the most warring country after 1945

      In fact, after 1945, the United States "marked" in more than 20 wars. Really the French have more?

    Well, people forgot about the battle for the Maldives. Argentina then the English boat was sunk by Ecoset missiles. England was very offended and demanded from France codes for these missiles. These missiles of the Argentines did not listen anymore.

        It seemed 6 was, the rest did not have time to get it.
        and it’s a chatter that exosets didn’t obey them, they just worked all well.
        in addition to shefield, the Atlantic conveyor went down there.
        and in fact they had a claim to the bombs, the mattresses were old bombs, they did not explode when dropped from very low heights. and therefore there were a lot of bombs falling into the Naglican ships, but the bombs did not explode, the Argentine pilots were already starting to howl from powerlessness, in fact they bombed with pieces of stone.
        if the bombs were normal, then the losses would be accused would be many times greater, not only in the navy, but also on the ground, for how many times did the Argentines bomb their troops on the ground and again the bombs did not explode.

      But you did not forget that the warhead of this missile, which hit the English destroyer, did not explode, which indicates the excellent quality of the French weapons! By the way, the American bombs didn’t explode either .... but the downs that they’re buying all the defective weapons aren’t getting smaller ... soldier

        Bombs and missiles could be overdue or could be stored in inappropriate conditions. There Azerbaijanis often show pictures of unexploded Armenian shells on their websites.

          The exosets were too new, they just arrived, so they could not be expired.

    The weapon was not expired and not defective. The problem was not the babin, but the crucifix @ dy in the cockpit. They misplaced these bombs. Thus, the height was not enough for the bombs to fly as they should ....

    The bike. The tactics of using the Argentinean Air Force Exetets were painted “on the shelves” in the last century. Up to the "whipping boys", which were "shining" on radars and brought the missile carrier, which was moving at low altitude, to the target.
    We read ZVO.

    On 08.08.08, the "Georgian Heroes" were "greatly helped" by the Ukrainian air defense forces and the "captured" American Hammers. The Arabs, however, have the same problems with technology. A monkey with a grenade is most dangerous to itself. Especially if the "fighting spirit" is appropriate.

    There are many advantages to those who say that people who love frogs have bad missiles ... God don’t underestimate the enemy and his weapons. The war for the Falklands showed that exoset rockets captured targets well and fell in all cases when they weren’t counteracted, and the rocket didn’t explode, so sheffield at the bottom and this is the main result. French mirages in Arab-Israeli conflicts were spinning rather well in turns with our moments, so don’t underestimate it, nor overestimate it either ... A professor at the educational institution told me like- watch a young man, watch, watch more and then evaluate .. .Do otherwise jump upstairs without understanding the essence!
