The French Army is a full of surprises! The French aren’t normally a society where war, weapons, and other martial-like issues garner much attention. In modern day discussion France can fly under the radar when military prowess is the subject. Of course, to think that you would have to have a very short memory, since the French empire of previous centuries was one of the largest empires on the planet. You don’t achieve that kind of status by being soft militarily speaking. This is in addition to past military geniuses such as Napoleon, whom, if it wasn’t for his “Waterloo”, would have been able to conquer ALL of the western hemisphere at the time.
So the French aren’t patsies compared to the U.S. military. They’re actually pretty good, as this video confirms. In it, the best military force known to men, the U.S. Marine Corps, along with their counterparts in the French Army, put the famed FAMAS assault rifles to use. When you think of French rifles of course, the joke of “never fired, dropped once” may come to mind. But that would be a very foolish assumption to make as well. Just watch.
Do you think the U.S. military should adopt FAMAS assault rifles as part of their inventory for urban combat? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
