EU Army: France Spearheads 13 New Joint Military Projects, Including Joint European Warships

The European Union has stepped closer to a fully operational army by announcing 13 new joint military projects, including a new fleet of next-generation warships, prompting condemnations of the EU’s “expansionist military ambitions”.

This week the European Union has announced 13 new defence projects, spearheaded by France, bringing the total number of joint EU army projects to 47.

The new projects will fall under the command of the deeply controversial Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) initiative, which was ratified by the bloc in 2017.

The new plans include a series of electronic warfare systems comprised of cyber training centres, an Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) anti-jamming system, and a German-Czech project that could lead to the training of electronic warfare and military units in the future.
