France plans to increase production of Aster missiles 19:32

The head of the French Ministry of Defense, Sebastian Lecornu, said that priority should be given to enterprises in the country’s military-industrial complex for the production of Aster anti-aircraft missiles. This was reported by RIA News.

“For the first time, I have used my executive powers to direct a number of contractors to prioritize military orders for Aster missiles, while civilian orders will take a backseat,” LeCornu said.

Before that Lecornu statedHe said Paris would provide Ukraine with missiles and hundreds of armored vehicles by 2024 and early 2025. According to him, Ukraine needs these tools to hold “such a large front line.” He stated that armored vehicles (VAB) are the key to troop mobility.

Currently, the VAB armored personnel carriers, which have been produced in the French army for more than 40 years, are being replaced by the new generation Griffon armored vehicles. The minister added that Paris will also “unlock a new batch of Aster 30 missiles” for the SAMP/T air defense system equivalent to the American Patriot.

Previously in France statedMacron wants war with Russia.
