    The simulation is made every two years and it gathers more than 1.700 military and 90 airplanes of war of six countries: Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, Brazil and France
    I thought those 6 countries all hate each other and are the reason for the recent arms race in the area, but yet they still hold joint exercises??

    A French United Nations peacekeeper officer protects his eyes from the sunlight as he arrives in the port of the southern border town of Naqoura, Lebanon, next to the headquarters of United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon, or UNIFIL, Friday Aug. 25, 2006. French warships anchored in the Mediterranean near Naqoura, about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the Israeli border and some UN peacekeepers landed to complete the French Unit as France said on Thursday it was ready to send an extra 1,600 troops to bolster a revamped U.N. force for Lebanon, bringing the total French contingent to 2,000 and making it easier to recruit other nations. (AP Photo/Francois Mori)
    If you can read the sign on the VAB, then it's easy to recognize that this French peacekeeper belongs to the 13th Engineer Regiment (13e Régiment du Génie). On the other hand the 13° RG is part of the 2nd Armoured Brigade (2e Brigade blindée). It's not always easy to distinguish between the units of the French Foreign Legion and the regular French Army because they usually employ the same equipment, weapons, vehicles and uniforms.

    Why are some UN vehicles painted entirely white, and others just have UN stencils on them?

    Is there a ready pool of UN armored vehicles that can be deployed? No, right? Doesn't each host country furnish its own men and equipment?

    It's only a question of time. To attach two letters (UN) on a vehicle goes fast. To paint a whole vehicle white needs more time. Sooner or later all vehicles are locally white painted as you can see on the pictures below.

    Thanks Ralf.

    Now does each sponsoring country pay for troop deployment costs, or does it come out of the UN peacekeeping budget? I.e. the country just has to furnish troops + equipment? Who takes care of the logistics?
