Tag: opération Harmattan
Seven months after the beginning of the conflict the French forces spent over 950 bombs, 240 guided weapons and 431 HOT anti-tank missiles in Libya. However, while weapons replenishment could be expected soon, French aircraft ordnance maker Société des Ateliers Mécaniques de Pont sur Sambre (SAMP) is shutting down production because of lack of orders.
In the past two weeks France has been deploying its medium altitude, long endurance ‘Harfang’ drones over Libya, operating from Sigonella air base in Sicily. Harfang was transferred from Afghanistan to support the Libyan theater of operation.
