VBCI in Lebanon

Today the Ministère de la Defense released wonderful photos of the arrival on September 17 of the 14 VBCI belonging to the 35e RI (Regiment d’Infanterie) of Belfort to the Lebanese shores. They are intended to replace the AMX-10P fighting vehicles of one of the French mechanized companies deployed in southern Lebanon since 2006.
