France carries out rare simulation of a 'nuclear deterrent strike' as US quits missile pact with Russia



France has carried out a rare simulation of a nuclear deterrent strike, amid fears of an arms race after Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of a missile pact with Russia.


The French military tested its nuclear capability in an 11-hour mission, using a Rafale warplane and firing a real missile without its nuclear warhead.


France spends some $3.5billion (£3.1bn) per year on maintaining its 300-strong nuclear weapons stockpile, launched from planes and submarines.


It comes amid growing global tension after Washington tore up a 1987 arms deal with Moscow, with both sides now planning to develop new missiles which were prohibited under the pact.


The mission comes with Europe increasingly worried about security as tensions rise between Washington and Moscow.

The French missiles drop Training Shoes and White Flags so that they can run from the enemy and wave the flag if apprehended.

Russia was the ones that EFFECTIVELY pulled out when they developed and deployed those missiles!! The USA has the honor to not stay in a treaty while breaking it like the Russians try to do. So, in order to play catch up, we are forced to develop those type missiles and pull out of the treaty. This is ALL on the Russians!!

俄罗斯开发并部署那些导弹,实际上等于退出了《中导条约》!! 为此,我们被迫退出条约。这一切都怪俄罗斯人!!

All this was sparked off the moment Russia developed that hypersonic missile. I know that Russian apologists will say "well the US have been developing them as well" but where's the proof of that? Only Russia have been pouring such an effort into upgrading its military in the past decade or so. Brand new tank, brand new jet, brand new submarine, and now brand new missile. It's obvious Russia have a war on their minds. They're not respecting the arms treaty, so why should anyone else? Because of Russia the world just became far more dangerous for everyone, including those Russian apologists.

Is the plan still the same? The French will save Western Civilization by destroying the Russian Horde as it crosses the German Plain? The French have every right to upgrade their equipment as needed.
