Subject: Ivory Coast replacing destroyed Su-25s

According to Reuters, the Ivorian government has already ordered replacements before the UN arms embargo and sanctions are put into effect. Either Belarus or Ukraine are most likely supplying the aircraft through a third country.

They called in reinforcements to destroy the first two. Is their occupation force now large enough to handle the demolition of two more?

they didn't call for reinforcements to destroy the first 2 SU-25s, French militaries were allready on the air field when they did return after they bomb the french camp. all they did have to do was to load explosive shells into their weapons, wait for the pilot to disembark and shoot.... as for the livraisons of the 2 SU25s, they will have to smuggle it very wisely, cause FAF are doing missions to force the embargo.
