AUSA – Felin in Action Vol 2

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013


The coolest giveaway I saw at AUSA was the “Felin in Action” graphic novel in the French Army booth. It features the French Army’s Digitization suite (Felin) in action. The copy I saw was in English so I wonder if these are available for sale as it looks like it’s part of a series.


Bastille Day Parade

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Unfortunately, we were remiss in wishing our French readers a happy Bastille Day. July 14th is their day of national independence and France was instrumental in our fight for independence. Each year the French celebrate with a large parade in Paris. Enjoy this year’s parade.

Once again, we apologize for missing Bastille Day. Vive La France!

The French 27e bataillon de chasseurs alpins (27e BCA) or 27th Mountain Infantry Battalion recently conducted high altitude mountaineering training in Chamonix. This unit has seen extensive action in Afghanistan. Take a few minutes to check out their equipment. The Overwhites are an Arktis design.

Forces Focus – Operation Serval – 2e REP Combat Jump into Timbuktu

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

To quote my friend Yancey, “Seems like the French had themselves a combat jump in Mali.”

This video by Pascal DuPont is the long version that shows the airland on the 27th of January into Gao and then concludes with the jump into Timbuktu on the 28th by the French Foreign Legion’s 2e REP ( 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment) including Harfang drone footage. Then there’s a bunch of other stuff.
