    I always wonder what Caesar himself would think of the crazy kick-ass things that now bear his name :p

    Is anything in France military named after Vercingetorix btw?

    We are always into complicated names,but thankfully,there are sometimes good abbreviations. :p

    Some exemples ;

    Canon équipé d'un système d'artillerie ---> CAESAR.
    Camion Ravitailleur Pétrolier de l'Avant à Capacité étendue ---> CARAPACE.
    Système Embarqué de Reconnaissance Vecteur Aérien Léger ---> SERVAL.

    :nono:

    The new Griffon multi-role armored vehicle will replace the current VABs by 2018.

    ...... followed by the Jaguar reconnaissance and combat armored vehicle that will replace the ERC-90 and AMX10RC.

    I am sceptical.
    I know there was a tranche of 64 more CAESAR,but it was cancelled by the current government's military programming law.
    Seeing the reversed cuts and army's fighting force increase,I wonder if the plans have changed ? @BON PLAN @Picdelamirand-oil @halloweene Any news ?

    I know that 32 CAESAR NG were planned to be bought to replace the AUF-1s,but later.
