The difference is we can rapidly deploy the first Armoured . The French and the Italians have never done this and show no interest in doing so . It all sounds good on paper ,now ask them to deploy and become operational within a few weeks in the gulf or anywhere else in the world ,they can't do it!

1st off i never said the desert rats were/are nails......i just defended them when you started slagging me.....also your comparing a British brigade to french and itallian divsions .......if your going to compare them then do it with the whole 1st div not just one of its brigades...1st armoured has 300 main battle tanks and over 450 warriors...we also use AS90 self proplled howitzers...not sure on the numbers but the british army has 180 of them....this dosnt incluled the MRLS we use or towed howitzers...trust me were not short on artillery...you talk about attack helicopters?? we have got an army air corps as in 67 apaches and over 100 lynx attack helicopters.....Italian Leopard 1??? theyre almost out of date why do you think germany has made leopard 2 ??? give me challenger 2 over the 1st leopard anyday of the week.....the Italian leltce isnt bad but it hasnt got a forward gear.....your right were not SF and i never said we were but when it comes to army regs were one of the 1st in everytime...do you not think theres a reason for that??as tex pointed out....we deployed thousands and troops and armour to the gulf within weeks...the only other country in the world capable of doing that quicker is the states our power projection is the secound greatest in the world....

by the way...those numbers on a french armoured div are bull**** youve listed their hole army

Bulgarian main battle tanks number 1475, t55 and t72, who gives a **** if there old, we got capable crews and we can outnumber the french 400 leclerc 3 to 1 and piss on your modern tanks. As for the italians i think BTR's will do the job.
