Where did this meme of France being cowards come from? People seem to be forgetting that France has the most powerful military in Europe and has been active all over the world in recent years.

Every time I hear one of my fellow countrymen say some shit like "hurr durr cowards lol" and stuff like that I just cringe at the ignorance. It's as painful as hearing someone unironically say "back to back world war champs" which is literally the most ignorant thing ever.

Well, you were on the winning side in both of them.... incidentally, so was France.

How can you considered UK as the most powerful military nation in EU when you still not have your air carrier, when your planes are either european or from USA, when your nuclear capability is kind of dependant of USA, when you need France or USA to send your military shits in space and when your soldier are nowhere but in their barracks since Afghanistan?

Getting it soon, in the meantime we have plenty of islands around the world we can operate from

>when your planes are either european or from USA
Why's that relevant? They're good planes and that's all that matters

> when your nuclear capability is kind of dependant of USA
False

>when you need France or USA to send your military shits in space
meh

>and when your soldier are nowhere but in their barracks since Afghanistan?
what do you even mean by that?

France is the second most powerful military in the world. Any other countries except the US rely on foreign technologies to even move outside their borders.

>this bait
Ok I'll bite

- Our aircraft carriers are coming soon and there will be 2 of them. Also we have strategically-located overseas air bases such as Cyprus

- Your planes are European, why is that a problem? Did you know we make Typhoons just in Britain? The difference is the UK has 5th gen STOVL fighters and France has nothing on that level.

- The use of our nuclear weapons is completely independent of the US, and they have British warheads inside

- Once our satellites are in space who cares? And we're building our own spaceport now anyway

- You're completely wrong about where our soldiers are. Don't bring up overseas basing because that will make France look bad in comparison to us.

can* make

For workshare reasons we don't, but if we wanted to we could

>>54086190
It's not true.

The French have:
No 5th gen fighters in their air force
No strategic air transport
No continuously available carrier strike
No large oilers
A much smaller navy by tonnage

The only reason they get so much attention is because the French African ex-colonies are even MORE dysfunctional than the British ex-colonies, so they have to keep sending their military down there to sort things out.

Only ignorants will say we were pussy during WWII.
We sacrified a full army in Dunkerque to save British one
Then we fought alone all the german army during weeks even if French one were totally disorganized.
After the capitulation and despite British and USA hostility De Gaulle managed some amazing stuff with very few means.
We were in Africa with Montgomery, we were in Italy with Patton. In every gars combat they were french unit. You can find many documents about how allied generals were amazed by the combativeness and the efficacity of french units.
During the Overload opération french résistance allowed this fabulous success and right after the french libération hundreds of thousands frenchmen fought in Alsace-Lorraine, Germany and even in Austria.
French did incredible things despite /int/ want to believe.

So yes you don't have aircarrier yet, yes your planes aren't yours (remember what happened to argies with Exocet and Dassault mirages ?), yes you depend of former country to anything related to space (spies or telecommunications satellite for exemple) and your soldiers are frozen their ass in your forgoten islands.
Thank to prove my point. You are behind France.

The Gauls were cucks
Charlemagne was German
Napoleone was Italian
Charles De Gaulle fled to the UK as soon as the Nazis started to approach France.
>>
>>54088215
>The Gauls were cucks
And ? History of France start with the treaty of Verdun

>Charlemagne was German
Frank.

>Napoleone was Italian
French since he was born a year after the annexion of Corsica by french

>Charles De Gaulle fled to the UK as soon as the Nazis started to approach France
He fighted them until the capitulation then fled for UK to organize the résistance.

You're welcome btw
