Looks like a typical activity for a military attache. I.e. being invited to a presentation of defense material for sale.
France has a considerable defense industry.

Hmm, could that be Fennec helicopters, I wonder.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...cropped%29.jpg

Looks similar to me.
The Danish military has some and they are put to good use and were very useful and popular in Iraq - by the British soldiers.
The Fennec is a very fast observation helicopter and it used to fly ahead of Coalition patrols and convoys, low and fast, sometimes spotting potential ambushes.
When the Danish troops pulled out of the Basra region the British asked for a the Fennec squadron to remain and so it was.

The DRF members sometimes hitch a ride on a Fennec.

Now that the Danish military is going to increase dramatically over the next years, that also means new material has to be purchased. And of course France would like to sell something. In this case helicopters.
The Danish military attache is so to speak the first to be cultivated by French firms - and in this case it's Joachim.

- And Joachim...
It is indeed genetically programmed into all men that we have to put our hands in our pockets while kicking tires, so to speak. But not in uniform, Joachim.

LOL, I thought the same thing about the pockets. My father would have been appalled at a man in uniform standing that way!

I was also surprised at the picture of him with the other men in uniform. They all look really sloppy for military men. Joachim looks presentable, but the others look like they're all in wrinkled and/or ill-fitting suits.

Indeed.

Can you spot the big no-no in this photo?
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FNbH90vX...jpg&name=large

Hint: the navy cap is dirty. Dirty as in filthy. As in even a homeless bum would think twice about wearing it.

Typical of the navy though. Given half the chance sailors will dress like pirates.
It takes an army-man to dress correctly.

But back to business.
The Danish military is going to buy a lot of stuff.
The air force is going to phase in the insanely expensive F-35s. I hope they'll be worth it.
Ships is something we can build ourselves and we are good at it.
The Seahawk helicopter is taking over after the much loved and very reliable Sea Lynx.

That leaves mainly the army. France and Germany are going work together on the replacement on the extremely popular Leopard 2, which I imagine DK will buy some of as well - so will most of the European countries and likely Canada too.
But DK will also need artillery, and here France, Italy and Sweden in particular comes in. South Africa has some good artillery as well, but I think arms manufacturers in EU will be preferred, both for political but also very much for supply reasons.
There is considerable pressure from France and Italy in particular, but also more discreetly from Sweden and Germany as well, to favor EU produced materiel. Because that means jobs and income, especially in a time where Europe may face a slowing down of the overall economy.
And another, but no less crucial consideration: EU doesn't know who the next US president will be and what will be the policy of the next administration. The former US administration caused quite some stir and it is no doubt considered safer to control arms manufacturing, supplies and spare parts if most of that is produced from within EU.

Prince Joachim sent a video message to pupils of Danish Øregård Gymnasium (probably currently in Paris) who today had a meeting about "French defense and security policy, French-Danish defense cooperation, terrorism, the Ukraine crisis":

Øregård high school is IIRC located across the street from the school M&F's children attend and pupils from that school often continue at this high school after graduating from shcool.

Prince Joachim received two high school classes from 2nd grade from Egaa and Støvring. They were particularly interested in the co-operation between Danish and French defense, including industrial co-operation.

These are two meetings I would very much like to attend!

The co-operation between France and DK in regards to military and security politics is increasing these years, perhaps even taking over to a considerable degree from Britain, with which DK used to have a very close military co-operation.
There are so many things in this context I would like to learn more about.

Hmm, are we going to purchase some French naval equipment, I wonder?
Or sell the flex-concept to France?
