[...]

The French army is inclined to agree, by affirming Foch’s premise that there are in fact principles of war and continuing to enshrine Foch’s. It places Foch’s Principles at the heart of its doctrine, or rather at the pinnacle of its “hierarchy of norms” as spelled out in the 2016 Future Land Action. More specifically, the French army today recognizes five principles of war. The first three are straight Foch: liberty of action, economy of means, and concentration of efforts. To these the French have added two more, reportedly derived from the 1992 book on strategy by Adm. Guy Labouérie (1933–2016). These are “uncertainty” and foudroyance.

Uncertainty quite simply is something one most go to great lengths to cultivate among one’s adversaries: uncertainty about what one is doing and going to do, where, when, and why. Foudroyance, derived from the word for thunder (foudre), means a sudden crippling shock. In truth, it amounts to a rephrasing of Foch’s principle of strategic surprise. To cite Labouérie (who mentions Foch but does not take up his principles specifically):

The principle of foudroyance has as its goal not destroying everything, which is without interest in any conflict, but breaking the rhythm or rhythms of the Other in its diverse activities, in such a way as to keep it from pulling itself together and to keep it a step behind the action.

To do that, one must strike at the right moment, at just the right place, where the effect would be to block the enemy’s attempt to retake the advantage or restore cohesion.

At the Centre de doctrine et d’enseignement du commandement’s 2019 conference, participants discussed whether or not new technologies, new forms of conflict, and new contextual realities (such as new political landscapes, the role of the media, and the much smaller size of most militaries) had changed or would in the foreseeable future change warfare so significantly as to make Foch finally useless. In essence, the answer was no, although participants agreed that commanders today and in the near future would have to change how they applied Foch’s principles. To some extent, the old terms mean different things or imply different courses of action. Liberty of action, for example, now requires access to information and protection of information networks. It also requires political legitimacy, especially since often it is public opinion at home that limits commanders’ choices and confines their liberty of action. Indeed, politics weighs far more heavily on military operations now than in Foch’s day. Also, modern forces are smaller and more likely to be dispersed to a far greater extent than Foch had in mind, giving new importance to economy of means and concentration of efforts. Information networks can facilitate both, though they will challenge command-and-control practices while also becoming a potential vulnerability (Gen. Guy Hubin’s 2003 Perspectives Tactiques stands in the French army as the most influential vision of how networked technology will affect ground operations). Concentration of efforts must also take into account the fact that more often than not military operations are conducted by coalitions. Conference-goers also suggested that recent evolutions oblige the adoption of new principles. Proposed examples include agility, comprehension, proportionality, and resilience. Similarly, French army doctrine itself evokes “legitimacy of action” and “reversibility of action.”

Beaufre perhaps said it best when he wrote that Foch’s principles have the advantage of being sufficiently abstract as to remain universally valid, though he complained that they were too abstract to have any practical application. Nonetheless his own work reflects a strong influence by Foch, and it seems that today the French army at least has inherited a measure of Foch’s aggressiveness. France’s 2013 intervention in Mali, for example, featured a rapid series of aggressive maneuvers that demonstrated a will to deny the enemy liberty of action and, in effect, cripple it through sheer relentlessness and speed. In that sense, the Mali war bore a remarkable resemblance to Foch’s vision of future combat in 1903 and the great counter-offensive of the autumn of 1918. Foch’s principles also make particular sense given the French army’s lack of resources, compared not just to the U.S. military but even the French army of Foch’s day. Economy of means when means are limited is not a thought exercise. Foch above all counseled fighting smart, and trying always to answer “de quoi s’agit-il?” even if this amounts to nothing more than the imperative to take a moment and think through what one is trying to achieve. This seems self-evident, but recent American military history suggests civilian and military leaders could benefit from the reminder.

French 21st Marine Infantry Regiment Receives VBMR Griffon Armored Vehicles


Citar
Thirteen new VBMR Griffons have arrived in Fréjus in the French 21st Marine Infantry Regiment. The 21st Marine Infantry Regiment thus becomes the fourth army unit to receive these vehicles on which two combat companies will be formed from August for a period of two months. The training phase will allow pilots, weapon operators and group commanders to practice directly on the vehicle. From November, two additional companies of the regiment will be trained in turn. The French Army (Armée de terre) had already received 92 of these VBMR Griffons in 2019. According to the French Army’s 2020 Defense White Paper it plans to buy up to 2,122 VBMR vehicles between 2018 and 2025.The French army has been preparing to replace the VAB since the early 2000s.


The 21st Marine Infantry Regiment (21e Régiment d’Infanterie de Marine, 21e RIMa) is a unit of the French military issued by filiation from the 2e RIC. In recent years the 21e RIMa has been engaged in theatres in central-Europe. The regiment was cited at the orders of the brigade for action in Kosovo in 1999. The regiment can be deployed in overseas missions or fill the service of missions in service of the public in metropolitan France. The regiment is the designated guardian of the traditions of the Troupes de Marine. Motoryzed infantry regiment on vehicles of the avant blindés (VAB), the 21e RIMa has for preponderant missions, the protection of national territories, the intervention in Europe and outre-mer territories privileging Amphibious warfare.


The VBMR Griffon (Véhicule blindé multi-rôles Griffon, lit. ‘Multi-role armored vehicle Griffon’) is a French multi-role armored vehicle that will replace the French Army’s VAB armored personnel carrier. A consortium of Nexter, Thales, and Renault Trucks Defense is building the vehicles. The same consortium also builds the EBRC Jaguar reconnaissance and combat vehicle for the French Army, which shares 70% of its components with the VBMR Griffon. The consortium building the “Griffon” and “Jaguar” is contractually obliged to keep the price per Griffon under €1 million. The vehicles are designed for simple maintenance and logistics. For example, Griffon and Jaguar both use standard commercial truck engines, which have been adapted to use a wider range of fuel.


The vehicle is based on a 6×6 commercial all-terrain truck chassis and will carry up to eight infantry soldiers. After 2021 a much lighter 4 × 4 version might be ordered, which will be used as a reconnaissance vehicle. Currently, six versions of the Griffon are planned, with four of these (Armored Personnel Carrier, Command Post, Ambulance, and Artillery Observer) ordered in the first tranche. The Griffon is equipped with a remote weapons station that can be armed with either a 12.7mm or 7.62mm machine gun, or a 40mm automatic grenade launcher. The addition of two Missile Moyenne Portée (MMP) anti-tank guided missiles is optional. Eight launchers for smoke grenades are fitted to the remote weapon station, which also includes an acoustic sniper localisation system.

France’s reforged, digitized ground forces

2018/07/08 Extenso e "datado" mas interessante...

Citar
(...)At the end of the Cold War, the French Army was relegated to a lower priority among the three services. The threat of Russian tanks rolling though the Fulda gap did not come to pass, and the peacekeeping operations in Africa did not require high-end, heavy fighting capabilities. Thus, the investment was redirected to the Air Force, which was starting its Rafale fighter programme, and the Navy.

The recent operations the Army was involved in proved this was a reasonable decision: neither the deployment in Afghanistan nor the African theater featured a symmetric ground threat. In Libya, French ground troops consisted only of special forces and the campaign relied on western air power and on the rebellion’s forces. The only time the Leclerc Main Battle Tanks were deployed was for a UN blue helmets peacekeeping operation in Lebanon, to set up a buffer zone between the Israeli and Hezbollah forces. Even what was arguably the largest French-only combined arms operation in decades, the Serval campaign in Mali, was against jihadists with no heavy equipment.(...)

Ao ler o artigo acima ("France’s reforged, digitized ground forces") lembrei-me dos Pandur Checos que custam 3x os nossos, do trabalho da AM sobre os nossos BIMec(R) e as dificuldades nas comunicações (e nas Secções VCB na Vigilância do Campo de Batalha...); mas também no possível problema dos franceses se o oponente tem forte capacidade EW e na logística (manutenção no terreno).

Sobre os "Kampfgruppen" dos franceses:

A SGTIA is the basic building block of the French ground forces and consists of, at its most basic form, three infantry or armor platoons and one platoon from the other arm (i.e., three infantry and one armor, or vice versa), with some associated support elements and a company-level command capability, all led by two captains, one with a fires coordination responsibility (see discussion that follows). More platoons and support elements can be added as required, with the limit being eight platoons total.

On a larger scale, there is the combined arms tactical group (groupement tactique interarmes; GTIA), which has the same structure as the SGTIA, only its component parts are companies, not platoons. Thus, the basic GTIA has three infantry companies and one armor company (or three armor and one infantry), a variety of support elements, and a battalion-level headquarters capability. More can be added as needed. Both GTIA and SGTIA are, by definition, scalable, and both are purpose-built for specific tasks.
 
Finally, the French do not adhere strictly to the textbook doctrine: GTIAs and SGTIAs in Mali and now in the Central African Republic are not consistently built around the 3/1 model.

The "Chadian SGTIA" primarily consisted of two companies of the 21st Marine Infantry Regiment (21e Régiment d’infanterie de marine; RIMa) operating armored personnel carriers
(the armored forward vehicle [véhicule de l’avant blindé; VAB]); a squadron from the 1st Foreign Legion Cavalry Regiment (1er Régiment étranger de cavalerie; REC) operating AMX-10RC
light tanks; and a battery of howitzers and mortars from the 3rd Marine Artillery Regiment (3e Régiment d’artillerie de marine; RAMa).



Como eles estão a substituir os AMX-10RC (e os ERC-90) pelos "ERBC Jaguar", que têm "apenas" um canhão de 40mm (e 2x MMP e muita electrónica), podemos considerar os "VBR PANDUR II 8X8 Porta Canhão 30mm" o nosso equivalente... 30mm não é 40mm, mas principalmente falta poder colocar na SP30 uns ATGM, a "electrónica", etc... depois é comprar muitas RWS 12,7mm para as VBR TP... equipamento para os pelotões "especializados", soldados...

Armée de Terre : Le nouveau blindé Griffon a découvert l’Afrique


En 2021, et avec le nouveau système d’information et de communication [SIC] SCORPION, le Véhicule blindé multi-rôles [VBMR] Griffon sera, déployé pour la première fois au Mali, dans le cadre de l’opération Barkhane. D’où l’importance de l’évaluation technico-opérationnelle qui vient d’être conduite par l’armée de Terre à Djibouti.

En effet, le 10 septembre, deux Griffon sont arrivés à Djibouti pour prendre part à une manoeuvre de tir au niveau SGTIA [sous-groupement tactique interarmes] organisée par le 5e Régiment Interarmes d’Outre-Mer [RIAOM], afin de vérifier leur comportement en terrain semi-désertique.

Cette évaluation, qui a duré dix jours, a notamment consisté à réaliser « diverses séquences de roulage […] jalonnées par leurs de premiers tirs Galix » [fumigènes] et d’essais d’équipements divers [sangles, coupe-câble, treuil, etc]. Des phases de tirs à la mitrailleuse 12,7 mm, aux côtés de chars AMX-10RC, ont été effectués.

Le Griffon a été « étudié sous tous ses aspects pour évaluer sa résistance au climat chaud et terrains accidentés : châssis, système d’armes, tourelleau ou encore liaison GPS, tout a été éprouvé », assure l’armée de Terre, qui n’a pas donné plus de détails.

Quoi qu’il en soit, les premiers retours d’expérience relatifs au Griffon ont tous été très positifs jusqu’à présent, sa grande maniabilité – malgré ses 24,5 tonnes et sa silhouette imposante – ayant été soulignée. Au point que, selon la revue Fantassins, son centre de gravité étant relativement haut, le blindé risque de se retourner en cas d’un excès d’enthousiasme de son pilote. En tout cas, avait résumé un sous-officier, ce véhicule « dégage une impression de sérénité et de puissance. »

Pour rappel, selon la Loi de programmation militaire [LPM] 2019-25, l’armée de Terre devrait disposer de 1.872 Griffon à l’horizon 2030 [avec la moitié livrée d’ici 2025, ndlr]. Le ministère des Armées vient d’ailleurs de notifier une nouvelle commande de 271 exemplaires auprès du Groupement momentané d’entreprises [GME] « Scorpion », constitué par Nexter, Arquus et Thales.

French Army VBL Ultima upgrade programme moves to production

Following trials with pre-production vehicles, Arquus have moved to a main production phase for the French Army’s upgraded Vehicule Blinde Leger (VBL) 4×4 scout cars, with first deliveries to be made soon, according to the company.

The vehicles, called the VBL Ultima, are being upgraded under a 2017 contract from France’s Direction Générale de l’Armament (DGA).

Original trials were carried out with a VBL System Demonstrator followed by four pre-production vehicles, with information from these being fed into this main production run of VBL Ultima vehicles.

The vehicle’s hull is stripped down at the Arquus Marolles-en-Hurepoix facility and roof-mounted weapon stations removed. It is then sent to the Arquus facility at Fourchambaut (Nievre) where any repairs are done, such as welding or replacing damaged windows. Mounting points on the hull are also fitted to enable applique armour to be installed.

The refurbished hull is then resprayed; windows, doors, and hatches are installed; and it is sent back to Marolles-en-Hurepoix for final assembly and testing before delivery to the French Army.

Arquus said a second VBL Ultima production line has been installed at the company’s Saint-Nazaire plant in order to increase the production rate, although Arquus declined to say what the production rate would be.

The VBL Ultima upgrade now includes replacing the original powerpack, a Peugeot XD 3T 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine developing 95 hp coupled to a ZF automatic transmission, which gave a maximum speed of up to 95 km/h. It is swapped for a new PSA DW10F diesel developing 130 hp and coupled to a new Mercedes automatic transmission to give a higher road speed.

thales 120 mm mortar system for griffon. c56x1



A unidade de produção de argamassa da Thales em La Ferté-Saint-Aubin entregará a primeira de suas argamassas Rifled Recoiled Mounted (2R2Ms) para a unidade de produção Nexter Roanne no último trimestre de 2021, disse a empresa a Janes .

O sistema 2R2M será então integrado na parte traseira de uma versão especializada do porta-aviões blindado Griffon 6x6 (APC) que está em produção e em serviço no Exército francês.

Griffon, oficialmente chamado de Véhicule Blindé Multi-Role (VBMR), ou Veículo Blindado Multi-Role, é o substituto do Arquus (anteriormente Renault Trucks Defense) Véhicule de l'Avant Blindé 4x4 APC que começou a trabalhar com o Exército francês tão cedo como 1976.

Em serviço com o Exército francês, o sistema 2R2M completo de 120 mm é chamado de Morteiro Montado para Apoio de Incêndio de Linha de Frente (Mortier Embarque Pour l'Appui au Contact: MEPAC).

A Direction générale de l'armement (DGA) da França contratou um sistema de protótipo e 54 sistemas de produção. A qualificação ocorrerá de 2022 a 23, seguida pela produção e entrada no serviço em 2024, com entregas finais em 2027, de acordo com a Thales.

O 2R2M de 120 mm é montado na parte traseira do Griffon e dispara através de escotilhas elétricas. Quando retraído, o Griffon equipado com o 2R2M parece quase idêntico ao Griffon APC padrão.

A argamassa montada em mesa giratória pode ser atravessada em 360 °, com uma elevação de 40–85 ° sob a força hidráulica. É acoplado a um sistema de controle de fogo computadorizado (FCS) Thales, sistema de assentamento automático (ALS) e sistema de navegação inercial (INS).
