    Don’t forget we also got a air and sea component. Our navy has fought in the gulf war and is famous for his mine sweeping expertise. Our airborne has fought in various wars (yougoslavia, gulf, Afghanistan, …).

    Walloons make some of the best weaponry on the planet, they stand toe-to-toe to German weaponry, all the greatest Belgian firearms designers are Walloons; Dieudonné Saive (FN FAL creator), Ernest Vervier (FN MAG creator) and Joseph Leclercq not to mention the Walloons who created the FN P90, FN FNC, FN SCAR and FN F2000. And knowing Walloons are ethnic French these facts debunk the myth that French can’t make good weapons, Walloons are living proof that French people are phenomenal with weaponry



  7. Aidan Lutz on November 15, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    I forget, did Belgium have conscripts from the Congo?



  8. Liano Lorriper on November 15, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    We need a larger army



  9. ronaldonmg on November 15, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    What I find unexpected is what I witnessed in the vierdaagse: in the belgian landforce, some speak (almost) Dutch while the others speak (almost) French, and they understand eachother anyway



  10. RAPP NEWSS on November 15, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    XD in May 1940 a huge Belgian fortress built in rocks at a depth of 25 meters (as much as the 7-8 story building is) defended by 800 soldiers surrendered after only 36 hours of an assault led by … 80 German paratroopers. Bogusław Wołoszański in an interesting interview for Newsweek mentions that he had the opportunity to talk to a sergeant from the crew of this fortress: He said that when they heard about the death of five colleagues, they demanded the commander surrender – says Wołoszański. This shows how much morale of soldiers means.



  16. Page-Hendryx on November 15, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    This guy is Canadian? Why is he talking like a whigger? Guy, quit embarrassing yourself and everyone else, and please speak and gesture like a normal person…

    We actually don’t know that the frie originated in belgium, the story comes from an unpublished family document of Namen but its more like an anachronism



  26. ??? on November 15, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    well this was interesting 🇧🇪



  27. bart degryse on November 15, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    If you wanna know how much army power belgium has etc, be a veteran
    para militar, write a suicide note, threaten virologists, steal army
    weapons, and let 500+people, army and police search for your ass in a
    forest "you probably even never setted a foot in," to confuse the whole
    country, xD



  28. LTX Outdoors on November 15, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Being pitted between two arch enemy Super Powers German and French, Belgium has been a long time became a fighting rings of those two Titans. Now Belgium says enough is enough.



  35. Wynants Rafael on November 15, 2021 at 9:35 pm

  36. fiendbastards on November 15, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    In Belgium u dont need to do physical test anymore to join the army.. Any moron or like in Belgium they use down syndrome men and women to fill in the ranks..



  37. Warre everaert on November 15, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Im from belguim and land component ( infantry ) is a part of the belguim army we got a lucht component (airforce) we got medisch component (medical ) and we have marine component ( like the marines) and least but not least we have special forces (like navy seals ) for special operations they operate in al these components so you are a little bit wrong there but interesting video ! ( the actual name of our army is defensie —> that comes from La défense and it actually means defend )



  38. Royal Regt on November 15, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    There is a lot more positive stuff to say, especially re WW2 defence & Cdo ops, & Belgians attached to British & Canadian units.



  39. Dell Ausus on November 15, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    BANGLADESH AND BELGIUM SAME .

  42. Superior on November 15, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    We have been more than "involved" in Congo. Leopold 2 has a kill count just one place lower than Stalin and Hitler.
