en court cordiale

Britian and France have made movements to combine military forces to reduce costs. Not too soon. Britian has the SA80 (bullpump) France has the FAMAS (bullpump). I'd say the SA80 is better in the pure sense its always been a true assault rifle, whilst the FAMAS1s were carbines by comparison (ie shorter effective range).

Given we are building two carriers with little much more than helicopters I hope france has some. The JSF is good but seemingly costly. Thats another thing, the airforce, army and navy all have thier own varient fighters. I'd say build only navy designs.
