This is actually not an anti tank missile. The purpose of this missile is to encourage the French army to run away faster. It's the first of it's kind. Quite revolutionary really.

That's why we stopped selling Stingers to Canadians.


As to the vid:

That's hilarious.

BTW, Stingers and Hellfires are 2 completly different types of missle. To compare this French missle to those two is like apples and hamburgers.

A more apt comparison is to the Javelin.... which rocks!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

That will get your heart pumping.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I saw a WWII French infantry rifle on eBay the other day. The ad said "never used, only dropped once."

Actually the Stinger missile launch failure goes back to the Afghan/Soviet war...US special forces had trained Afghans to use the Stinger...first operational encounter, the Afghans lined up a Hind helicopter, fired, the Stinger came out of the tube, flew about 10 feet and hit the ground...the American advisors...freaked out, cause the Hind had now spotted them...the Afghans calmly brought a second stinger into play...and took out the Hind. It was on the History Channel maybe a year ago. I'm not sure when the "french" video was taken...could have been during development of their missile, and shit happens...the french have always produced so top notch weapon systems and some real losers too. But I guess everyone forgets the HUGE success the Exocet was.

Take a deep breath and calm one's self. I was only joking around.

Yes, the Exocet is a very reliable missle. It's just fun poking fun at the French.

Yes, I'm sure some Stingers misfire. Anything man-made can break. Nothing is 100% all the time. But when you look at the Stinger's hit rate I believe it is the highest of all fire/forget missles.
