And I guess the Germans will provide the dove as engine.
Or some nurses.

A joint MBT project with another NATO country? Surely there's no way this could fail.

Well Franco-German projects tend to work, it's the Anglo-French one's that fail as surely as the tide comes in.

Or the dummy MGs! :twisted:

Actually, I'm pretty interested to see the result of a French/German MBTs. Both country have produced quite successful ones (technically, if not commercialy ... at least for us :roll: ) so far.

Well, with France probably going to replace its FAMAS by German weapons, plus we're already producing choppers together, ... we are slowly moving step by step toward a standardized (French-German) European Army. :)

The Jaguar sadly foreign sales were sabotaged by dassault which was rather upsetting for the French engineers

Not to mention the gazelle, lynx, Puma and Milan both operated by both nations.

I have seen pics of French SF with the 416 rifles, will this affect the Felin program or will it be transferred to the new rifle?
