According to Ms Florence Parly (French Defense Minister), the armed drones MALE (moyenne altitude longue endurance) REAPER MQ 9, will arrive for Barkhane by the end of 2019. Equiped with guided bombs GBU and Hellfire missiles (and here was me thinking that they, or some, were already on zone). Any buddy knows the cost of 1 of these?

Sahel region across north Africa. Photos of Fort Madama on the border of Niger/Libya...the original fort was built in the 1930's. Since 2014 the French and Americans have pumped $millions into the upgrade, including a 2km airstrip.
