Current French Anti-aircraft mobil equipment

What does the French army currently use for mobile anti-aircraft? Is the Roland still in use?
Is there a good overall site for modern French Army information

AFAIK, the French Army uses the Crotale NG (Nouvelle Génération) all-weather, short-range surface-to-air missile system :

along with the SAMP-MAMBA system (Ground-to-Air medium range / ground)

The Roland was phased out in 2008.

They also use the Mistral which is an infrared homing short range air defense system :

Various AA variants of the VAB are still in use, like the T20-13

For more info, Wikipedia is a good start



Thanks for the update
