The Minister of the Armed Forces Florence Parly and her German counterpart, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, today ratified two agreements relating to the Franco-German MGCS tank project. "Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and her French counterpart Florence Parly have signed a framework agreement defining the organization of the project and the management structures," announced the German Defense Ministry this morning.The two ministers also signed a first implementation agreement (Implementing Arrangement 1) which constitutes the contractual basis for the study of system architecture entrusted to the three industrialists concerned, the French Nexter and the Germans Rheinmetall and KMW. "The Budget Committee recently paved the way for notification of the two-year study," said the German defense ministry. Agreements signed at a distance, the ministers were unable to meet due to sanitary measures. As previously announced, future architecture contracts will be funded equally between the two countries. They will also answer the question of intellectual property so that each country retains a right to monitor the use of the results of the R&D work carried out by their national industry. This announcement should reassure more than one French side, at a time when defense industries are calling for securing national and European R&D programs to offset the economic impact of the health crisis. Despite the crisis, work “continued with two ministries and three companies on the Franco-German tank program. The progress is remarkable since after having signed a cooperation agreement between industrialists last year, we now have a contract which is ready to be signed in order to be able to start the first phase of this program, "declared the CEO of Nexter, Stéphane Mayer, last week facing the Defense Committee of the National Assembly.
Army During this pandemic that plagues us, uniformed personnel have been doubly rewarded in the development of their tasks. Firstly, for the pride of serving our society when it is needed and, secondly, for the recognition that it returns to us from the balconies at eight o'clock in the afternoon, the comments we read on social networks and the calls of encouragement and thanks from family, friends and neighbors. original article on: https://ejercitotierra.wordpress.com/ By uniformed personnel, I do not only mean that of the Armed Forces but also the rest of the personnel essential for society to function (State Security Forces and Bodies, firefighters, public transport, supermarket workers, transporters, cleaners, etc. and especially medical staff, the first line of combat). All of them, all of us, as I have said, have felt this double reward that encourages us to continue to redouble our efforts. But ... are we all there? We do; others, not entirely. I mean by others the civilian personnel of the Ministry of Defense. More specifically, in the case that concerns me in this front of support and sustainability of the "Balmis" operation in Madrid, the Logistics Support Group (AALOG) nº 11, located in Colmenar Viejo. Our staff, with a fairly high average age, high value and little replacement, are showing a remarkable strength and willingness. The civil servants, the labor personnel, the specialists in their workshops and in the laundry, the administrative ones in their offices ... are giving great samples of generosity, knowing that from their combat positions, their silent tasks are necessary so that the part and the whole of the organization and its missions, in the logistics base "San Pedro" and, especially, outside the walls (in the "Gómez Ulla", IFEMA, on October 12, the Fira de Barcelona ...), can be sustained. I'm talking about my unit, AALOG 11, but the same thing happens in other logistical organs, units, centers and technical and specialized organizations, in the management organs of the Army, the FAS and the Ministry of Defense, to which Mrs. Minister in her letter dated April 2 to all the staff of her Department. My special mention and recognition for those who, having the consideration of risk personnel (by age or pathology) and being able to be at home, have requested motu proprio their incorporation to certain critical positions for the "Balmis" operation. Of course, after a rigorous and exhaustive study by the Office of Occupational Risk Prevention for the adoption of measures against COVID-19 in their specific jobs. I do not say their names. I don't make their faces. Today we are all after a mask. Let's just remember that they too are faceless heroes. Coronel Bordonado

this is test article A weapon, arm or armament is any implement or device that can be used with intent to inflict damage or harm. Weapons are used to increase the efficacy and efficiency of activities such as hunting, crime, law enforcement, self-defense, and warfare. In broader context, weapons may be construed to include anything used to gain a tactical, strategic, material or mental advantage over an adversary or enemy target. While ordinary objects – sticks, rocks, bottles, chairs, vehicles – can be used as weapons, many are expressly designed for the purpose; these range from simple implements such as clubs, axes and swords, to complicated modern firearms, tanks, intercontinental ballistic missiles, biological weapons, and cyberweapons. Something that has been re-purposed, converted, or enhanced to become a weapon of war is termed weaponized, such as a weaponized virus or weaponized laser.
