Dassault Etendard: In Service of the Republic
The story of the Étendard began because Marcel Dassault and his technical general director Henri Deplante were unhappy with the decisions of the French Air Command. Dassault Aviation developed the excellent Ouragan and the Mystere for their country, but that didn’t stop officials from also procuring the American F-86 and the F-100. More importantly, in 1950, there wasn’t a single French combat aircraft operating from the sole aircraft carrier of the French Navy. A total domination of American technology!

What is stronger: a spear or a shield? That’s the gist of the eternal arms race: while one side develops a powerful gun, the other finds a way to make their armor stronger — or gives old weapons a new life with the help of modern shells. By the mid-20th century, though, it seemed like engineers cracked the code and found the ultimate way to defeat tank armor: HEAT projectiles and especially ATGMs.

Aigle is Back on the Anniversary of its Launch!
Launched on February 19th 1931, Aigle (“Eagle”) became the lead ship of the French destroyer series of the same name. In the early years of WWII, Aigle accompanied convoys transporting soldiers and gold bars, and in the summer of 1940 took part in a raid on Genoa, repelling attacks from Italian boats. Aigle was scuttled at Toulon along with other ships of Vichy France in November 1942 to prevent it from falling into the hands of Nazi Germany.
