Military tank


Only 222 tanks were in service with France, some of which cannot be used in combat.

France had problems with armored forces.

The reports of the French Ministry of Defense made it possible to establish that the French army is armed with only a little more than 220 tanks, which is almost 17 times less than in service with Russia.

They simply don't need it.

They are in NATO, they will need tanks, they will drive them there.
