Military Review

How do you equip and equipment of the French contingent in Afghanistan?

70
I came across some interesting photos of the French contingent in Afghanistan: the equipment is good, but I don’t even know the equipment ... as an iron on wheels.

      Well, judging by the presence of a huge number of "tanks" and BMPs on the basis of "Toyota Land Cruiser" they are fighting there "not life but death" for democracy.
      In addition to satellite communications and positioning systems, and optics, you can’t see anything outstanding.
      And how and with whom should they fight there?
      With your "farmers" on poppy plantations?

          And who is arguing?
          Only with such equipment and technology is it extremely clear what they are doing there.
          They are preparing a "fifth column" for us, providing ammunition and equipment, and training for the "bearded" ..

          He didn’t prove anything to anyone.) From the design point of view, that lekler, leopard, merkava 4 is ideal, considering that the doctrine of Western tank building is the maximum security of the crew, they fulfilled their function by 200% both in terms of security and from the point of view of normal ergonomics.) the fact that you like Russian armored vehicles still does not mean anything. as if in the west there are no analogues to a vampire or a cornet?

            - the same German "Panthers" during the Second World War were superior to the Soviet "thirty-four". Since then, the tradition, as I see it, has not changed. It is clear that protecting the crew with your steel body is certainly a noble task, but who will fight? Manufacturability of the tank, i.e. the relative simplicity of its manufacture, allowing to develop greater productivity and, accordingly, the reproduction of tanks instead of those that have disappeared in battle, other characteristics - as I understand it, from your point of view, this is irrelevant.

              I don’t draw :) just by the nature of my activity, I am engaged in the development and design of styles, including in the field of website building illustrations, so from the point of view of design, Western technology is nothing but perfection, we have the same situation with technology as with the auto industry , and the auto industry with us is AUTOTAZ, so look, design and ergonomics in comparison with our basins.)

              Are you still stuck in 41st? :) in the very first months of the war, the country's main production facilities may well be destroyed, and how then to glue the tanks? :) Forget about it, in the courtyard of the 21st century, it will be exported - aviation. Tanks will only work out during assaults and sweeping of cities, or during subsequent occupation of territories

      Mali.
      Since early March, the French Ministry of the Interior decided to show French soldiers in action by posting a few videos.

      The first shows the operation of the Rapid Response Force (QRF) of the Inter-Army Tactical Group (groupement tactique interarmes) GTIA-2 "in support of the Malian armed forces when terrorist groups infiltrate the city of Gao on February 21". This image of fierce fighting represents the first phase of the war - the capture and control of the main cities in the region.



      Another video dated February 26 shows a rather impressive offensive on armored vehicles and on foot for the GTIA-3 ​​group, with the goal of “occupying the Adrar-Iforas area”. This is the second reconnaissance phase.



      A video of the battle of the French paratroopers (1er régiment de chasseurs parachutistes, RCP) with the Islamists in Adrar-Iforas is displayed:

        Well, for a snack from the Mujahideen .. how can without them?

        The Moorish site Alakhbar, known for privileged access to the Islamic groups operating in the Sahara, published on March 14 videos and photographs of the “latest AKIM bastions,” with the following comment: “Exclusive photos and videos help better understand the location of the operation. It appears that the fighters have access to several sources of water. They can also count on animal food. ” The video also shows two Spanish hostages, Albert Vilalta and Roque Pascual, abducted in Mauritania at the end of 2009.

Now the debriefing, Dzagoev hails from North Ossetia, Russia; French national team (France is a European state) consists almost entirely of Arabs and Blacks. Anyway, football players, they benefit playing for the national team, and the rest of the Arabs and Negroes living in France (with all the ensuing social, criminal problems). In general, France will soon become a Muslim state, but this will be a different story. hi

      You are wrong, if you talk about the legion, then for this he serves, to attract foreigners to a not-so-safe job. But the standards of preparation are the same everywhere. In addition, France is a multinational country with natives of former colonies and immigrants, in the second, third generation they are already real French. So don’t need Lala

    Kind! All this equipment is of course a good thing, but what is the cost of equipment for those who do not really know how to fight? Of course, you can look through binoculars and rangefinders and even into a bunch of beautiful instruments, unless of course they will give it during this time in battle.

Of course, I’m not a tactician in the tenth generation, but pay attention: photo # 1 - I wouldn’t light up like that in their place, but it’s as if on a picnic. photo No. 3 — usually they occupy a height for a dislocation. photo # 7 — I don’t notice shelter in the circle of them (can’t you poke a finger in the right direction? Are you crouched, you see, tired of the road) or each soldier has an invisible protective field around.

    There is nothing special in this equipment, the GO camera for extreme shooting on a helmet is not an indicator, but knee pads. Farce for reporters.

      Well yes! Nothing at all! We have better, right? It’s not a shame that our guys are still running around in kirzachach? My teeth grind with envy of them! How are they taking care of ordinary soldiers! About saving their lives! About convenience. This is to our Serdyukov and they cover everything deeply .. R. It’s a shame, damn it. You look at the real photos of the war in Chechnya, not the ones in the films, and it’s embarrassing and painful for the guys ... You don’t have to judge here, but shoot for any sabotage and theft in the army ...

    Now in the organization of battle and in battle, communications and optics are deciding. This was proved by the Germans back in 39g. Effective management and accuracy.
    We always lack the initial data, the logistics are terrible.
    In modern counteraction, information about the enemy reaches 90%.
    We crawl out on the courage of the personnel and professionalism of the officers.

    French couturier fashion show. Something their fashion models are dumb. And their technique is not the best of beauty.

        These are spotters of fire (or aircraft controllers) with a laser rangefinder, binocular, with a target designation system (the fourth "hollow" is a laser irradiator).

          I mean backlight? Well, as far as I know, hand-held backlights do not exist. Or a tripod, or a stabilizer, and then the device will be much larger

            Well, observe something, and rangefinder in scanner mode, with hands, without a tripod, is it possible? wink What do you think? And then - in the picture is not a classic artillery quantum rangefinder, but a portable monitoring device, probably with the IR illumination function.

    I read the article and looked at the photo .... And then below the comments ... the French then the French are ... yes we .... yes our special forces ..... The article is about equipment and equipment !!! you taunt the French? ... pluses ,, earn ,,? ... well ... Well, soon 30 years old because of the ,, river ,, came back however I remember everything well --- what kind of equipment we have there ,, was ... The fighters themselves, with their own hands, bras, sewed from tarpaulin, because we didn’t have any regular unloading at that time ... you-- on a belt pouch with four horns, okay?, Shoes are a special article ... many probably know that they had to buy sneakers themselves and normal shoes for ,, green ,, exchange .... our shoes are something .. on a heavy mountain trail yes with a load of 30-40kg. in such - a pipe ..... A steel helmet with one chin strap - to hell --- heavy, fidgets constantly, and in it, run and crawl in the heat for 40 ... A regular sleeping bag --- mockery ,,, mattress ,, by weight and volume - they used trophy spirits. About all the little things --- goggles, knee pads, etc. generally I am silent .. And to no security services, to any, high bosses, at the top “It didn’t matter, but they wrote and reported. Good and reliable weapons and optics, communications equipment didn’t cause any particular complaints. And the French - they have everything in order ... we would do so at that time. .And this armored vehicle with a seemingly ugly look, judging by the contours of the hull to undermine it will be strong ..

      Nothing has changed over these 30 years. Instead of having the equipment developed by the pros, pedr. Couturiers will be involved in its development ... The mind cannot understand Russia ...

      The second is Chechen. "Bras" from two pouches. Plus thanks to "Splav" for delivering unloading to the militants. They passed to ours as trophies. Only the Airborne Forces had regular unloading.

        Pioneer rafting and ours and the spirits went with a bang. Only ours bought it for their own, in principle, like perfumes. Slightly after the crouching loads appeared. All sorts of seals they have only one plus sooo strong material. They, too, and spirits used ours.

      But they do not understand a fucking thing. They don’t understand that we don’t have normal communication, so that every fighter, that optics don’t have a normal one, it’s better to keep silent about our prehistoric binoculars, about PSO, about the fact that every fighter needs a calimator. That the shoes aren’t normal, that the shmatie doesn’t stand our criticism. They are all FSUs, we are the coolest and not ..... t. Personally, that’s why I don’t even crap a damn thing already. There’s no one to even debate with, stupid kamenty or idiots or all-encompassers.

        about our prehistoric binoculars, better keep quiet

        The B-8 is an excellent binocular. If it is protected from blows. B-6 is also nothing, but almost all of them are killed, the optical axes do not coincide, as a result - about 40 minutes of observation provide sea sickness.

          And they have a range finder, but is there an opportunity to mark a target, but do they have a thermal imaging camera? No, but the French have it all.

            Do you think that the French have no binoculars, only rangefinders? Poured B-6:



            With rangefinders, yes, we have an ambush. The troops have one more Soviet decision-maker, both in the artillery and in the intelligence. But even then the advance began. The same "Archer" provides removal of the coordinates of targets from the hands.

      What are you talking about, what kind of fighting taste? Somehow it’s not clear .. Any technique is created to fulfill a particular task. A multifunctional technique does NOT exist, since the TTD will be averaged. BTR is proof of this.

    Dear
    read the reviews and was amazed. Some of them are downright funny. Especially about "ugly equipment", "they have nothing special, a farce for reporters", "looks at night vision devices during the day" and "the Taliban beat the French in the tail and in the mane."

    For a more detailed introduction to the topic, I recommend reading about the developments of Sagem and Thales for the French Armed Forces. And also, about the implemented FELIN program. And pay attention to the presence of holographic sights, infrared markers, NVD, modern surveillance systems and radio communications, etc. in ordinary infantry.

    Statistics say not in favor of the French not fighting. Or that the French are being beaten. And vice versa.

    As for the article, this photo is not related to the French Armed Forces:
