French Special Forces to Return to Afghanistan

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hopefully they'll not take a wrong turn in Kajaki Sofla this time!
     
  2. As long as the US ETT leading the column don't take the wrong turn this time, it should not happen.
     
  3. Yep. On HERRICK 8 we blew the doors off the compound where the French SF bloke was killed. Not really any reason to do it except for spite and in a silly sort of way a salute to the bloke who died there. Are the French SF going back into Helmand or somewhere else?
     
  4. The idea is for the French contingent to have its own AOR in RC-E, complete with its own SOF. The past months have seen the arrival of French 155 artillery, attack helo and some more AFVs are on there way so as to be more self reliant.

    I can't see a future French SOF contingent being engaged far from RC-E where it's needed in support of the French TF.
     
  5. Cheers mucker.
