FRANCE LOOKS TO ADD EQUIPMENT VIA ADDITIONAL FUNDING

PARIS - The French military will look to procure additional equipment using extraordinary funding set aside by the government for the 2016-2019 timeframe. Of the EUR3.8 billion ($4.22 billion) provided for defense for the coming four years, about EUR1.5 billion ($1.67 billion) will be used to purchase hardware. With ongoing operations in sub-Saharan Africa, the French armed forces require new equipment to replace or supplement existing platforms.

At the top of the list includes the acquisition of transport aircraft, for which EUR330 million ($367 million) has been set aside. Reports indicate that the French Air Force and Special Forces seek to acquire four Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules tactical airlifters, in either the J or K variants. These would supplement an existing fleet of about 14 H models undergoing various updates.

France' defense procurement officials will also seek acquisition of a further seven EC665 Tiger attack helicopters and an accelerated delivery of six NH90 TTH transport helicopters.
