Most interesting mix of existing blufor units + a fair few new original ones is my guess. + it may be the most viable new nation of the bunch.


See this is the part thay gets me excited. :D

- power-wise, it can stand-alone among "medium" nations.
- it could/should have been included in EE & ALB (we had considered them) but were dropped in the end. It was the #1 missing Europen nation.
- they get some indigenous equipement.
- they get to field some pretty good foreign equipement in an unusual mix: Leo 2, Apache, F-16 ... as well as some funny old-timers (AMX-13 FL-15, M752 Lance, ...).



Sounds good! But inb4 Lance rage! :lol:

You should also notice that as far as air force goes, they also purchased the Block 15 OCU F-16 in 1987.

+ we were eager to see how fast and how creatively the Vuurploeg infantry name will be transformed into something sordid. :twisted:

You have mentioned they have the strength to stand on their own, but is The Netherlands going to fit into any existing coalition?

Also, rad news.

I think hints were dropped about it somewhere already.

I think next to the French or merged into Eurocorps

Yes, they will be teamed with another (existing) European nation into a new coalition.
