Default Colombian Armed Forces

Hi, this is my first post here. I am from Colombia.

since 2nd February to 6th February the colombianīs defence minister will visit Israel in a oficial trip. He will meet with Olmert and Barak.

During the next three years Colombia will spent much money in defence systems. Maybe, one of the biggest suppliers will be Israel.

One of the systems to buy will be the Kfir C10. The FAC (Colombian Air Force in spanish) will complete 24 samples. It has today 10 C7 and one TC7.


Greetings!

Hi;

The Galil was bought for colombia in 1985 at first time in 7,62mm version. On 1994 began to emsambled in Colombia in 5,56 version. I believe that my country is the only one builder of this system in this moment.

Since the last year was bought the Tavor for the special forces. The army also uses the Neveg light machine gun.

Colombia also is user of the Spike, Nimrod, Phyton III and Griffin other light weapons.

Greetings

I was in Colombia a few years ago and I have to say your Marines are sharp. I have a very positive impression of your military. your country. and of your people.

Some israeli people like to go to Colombia, by the landscape.

yes, It has around 20.000 people, but it is a river combat force with many light boats for river assault and control

We are (in colombia) very happy. Yesterday was killed in combat the second commander of the left-hand insurgency group: FARC. The name of this terrorist is 'Raul Reyes'.

five days ago a satelital comunication was intercepted and its coordinates were hit. two days ago was infiltrated of special forces for confirm the information. Then, at midnight the campamanet was attacked by two A-29B Super Tucano. The terrorist was wounded, but with the special forces in the area, his fate was sealed.

The attack was done two kilometres inside ecuatorian territory. that terrorist was moved along border line. I do not the implications, but maybe the relationship with the Ecuador will be conplicated.

in the attack died 17 insugersy members in total.

I do not know laws about gun in colombia, but I know that if I need I can buy light gun with a defense minister`s autorization. The civil people has prohibited to buy a semiautomatic waepons.
