Topic: few specifications .......


I will ill just give you a few specifications of Mexico's military.

We have the 3rd largest Armed forces personnel in the american continent ( USA, BRAZIL & Mexico.)

We dont have Main Blatle tank. However we have the ERC-90 LYNX 90MM adopted as our ''light tank''

The Mexican standard assault rifle in the ARMY is the H&K G-3 7.62mm x 51 and in the NAVY the standard assault rifle is the M-16A2. The special forces use the MP5, M4 & CAR 15 and its diferent variants.

We have a lot of armored troop carriers.

A decent variation of special forces. Theres the GAFES, GANFES, BLACK NEEDLES,ASIES, KAIBILES, FRA, and the AIRBORNE Special Units. Well trained and equipt.

Our main jet fighter is the F-5E. 12 more were bought this year.

The Navy started a modernization plan. In this year we got 2 aliya class missiles boats. 50 Russian Ural trucks. 2 E-2 HAWKEYE .For next year we are getting 2 Panthers from EUROCOPTER. The goal is to have a modern naval force in the next 20 years.

The number of warships dont know exactly.
The main helicopter in the Navy is the MI -17 Russian helo. Theres plans for some russian helicopter plants will be installed to build helos in Mexico. This was discussed with russian president Vladimir Putin in its resent visit to Mexico.

Thats all i can tell you guys for now.

If they sent all of them into California, RIGHT Now.. They could probably kill every single person in California within three days with all the Fire Power they pack. <_<;; Then again, the Police Force has almost as much fire power as the National Guard, so.. Yeah. XD
I think you have exaggerated, ALOT! 35 Million people in 3 days is a lot.


There is more to a military than just an Army, We have an Air Force and a Navy to back it up. If Mexico sent all their troops into California they would return to find Mexico City occupied by the Army, the Navy had completely destroyed every patrol boat in the Mexican Navy (do you have any large ships? I am not sure.), and the Air Force would be dropping bombs on them every inch they tried to move forward, not to mention the fact that the UN will not complain if we just nuked Mexico City and called it even. Let us not forget that we have a very, very good supply system, tell me, how well can Mexico supply their troops when Mexico itself has been invaded and no supplies are moving North. And the Marines would simply surround California, move in from all directions, and send the Mexican troops fleaing into the ocean to be picked up by the Navy. Or the Marines would land on the beaches of California and force the Mexican Troops south, back towards Mexico only to be ambushed by the US Army shortly after crossing back into Mexica and thinking they are safe.

Besides, doesn't Mexico have an American President? Former CEO of Coca-Cola?

Your comments and knowledge of your military are most welcome here. Please feel free to share any information you like. This is an international forum, and we're more than thrilled to have representatives of militaries throughout the world.

As for the rest of you, you better learn when it's debate time and when it's sit down, shut up, listen and learn time. Mxcommando offered a thread to learn about Mexico's military, not to start an "Us vs Them" flame war. Check your nationalistic ignorance at the door.

I think some of you went a lil far there. [Im sure the admins are gasping at that] To mxcomandos most people know nothing of your military. You should stick around and teach us some stuff and we will do the same for you.
