Not counted.(click to view full) France booked arms export orders worth EUR 3.4 billion (about $4 billion) in 2004, and delivered EUR 7.1 billion (about $8.4 billion under current conversion rates) of military equipment to foreign buyers, according to the official report to the French Parliament. This annual report to Parliament analyzes arms export agreements concluded by France in 2004, as well as military equipment actually exported during the same year. The information is broken down by region, by country and by type of equipment, and numerous appendices are provided to allow detailed analysis. Most of the information covers the last ten years. As notes, however: “This report’s greatest failing is that it is available only in French.” Naturellement.
