France and Germany are collaborating on European Defense Projects

French Prime Minister said it’s essential to keep investing in a new fighter jet, part of the Future Combat Air System program, as well as a replacement for the existing Leopard 2 and Leclerc main battle tanks.

The Future Combat Air System program seeks to bring together France’s Dassault Aviation with the German-based defense arm of Airbus — currently part of the rival Eurofighter consortium, that also includes BAE Systems Plc and Leonardo. 

It’s been stalled as companies have argued about intellectual property and export policies. 

Meanwhile, Britain and Italy are developing the rival Tempest fighter, along with Japan.

France and Germany are also collaborating on a new main battle tank as part of the Main Ground Combat System project.
