Re: Brazil buys 50 helicopters, 5 submarines from France

Re: Brazil buys 50 helicopters, 5 submarines from France

The Foch was sold for 80.000.000 of francs (12,2 millions of euros). My opinion is that this ship had to be sent to the brokers.

Regarding MEK, I think it is a endless debate, French and Britsh have their parts of responsibility on the loss of these 1297 crewmans.

I agree with ostriker, examples of unreliability can be found everywhere. My point is: please do not praise a supposed better reliability of French gear, simply because, as noted before in this topic, they are not better nor worse than the other's.



That's the point.

Re: Brazil buys 50 helicopters, 5 submarines from France

Nelson, I must agree with Bill, Brazil has not to complain for having bought a second hand carrieR. The Foch was out of date and Brazil was aware of what they were buying... for steel price... In my opinion, - I won't be so harmfull as Bill is -, is that every nation is proud of his own technologies...

Re: Brazil buys 50 helicopters, 5 submarines from France

Karl, it seems you are forgetting the main point: Business. It is useless to be narrow-minded, industrial powers have sold, are selling , will sell, weapons everywhere. Infortunately, the moral hasn't her place here. And it is not the case only for your -loved- France. I remind you that other count...

Re: Brazil buys 50 helicopters, 5 submarines from France

Sadly it seems that populist socialist Ignacio Lula da Silva, Brazil´s President, is keen to put his country and Latin America in trouble with an armamentist race. Not even during the dictatorship periods of the 60ies or 70ies a Latin American country has developed such an agressive and excesive pl...

Hey Karl, don't worry; it is not sure at all that the Russians are going to order anything to the "Frogs". You can sleep well. :wink: I will really hope the French sell to the ruskies their idea of stationary defense system (Maginot). Maybe the western powers sometine need them to act like...
