3 Reasons Why The Kenya Defense Forces Are The Best Assault Troop In Africa (Opinion)

The Government of Kenya, together with the Ministry of Defence, invests billions of dollars in the Defense budget every year. Millions of shillings go to various departments in the Ministry of Defence, but more money goes towards strengthening the Kenya Defense Forces.

According to online military sources, the KDF has 24, 120 active personnel under the command of the Chief of Defense Forces, General Robert Kibochi. The KDF has surpassed most forces in Africa and has become one of the most powerful forces in the continent.

One of the main reasons why Kenya has this status is because of the size of Arsenal. Kenya boasts of a variety of powerful weapons that are lacking even in other developed African countries.

For example, the KDF is the only force in Africa that has the lethal FN SCAR rifle. The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) was developed specifically for US special forces and can only be used in less than 20 countries around the world.

This weapon is considered the most powerful assault weapon ever created and the most expensive. Kenya is the only country in Africa that uses it.

Another Kenyan machine with climate control is the new MD 530F Cayuse Warrior mower. The launcher is a weapon approved by US President Trump for the KDF. It is designed to improve scouting, infantry and close air attack capabilities of the air force.

The multi- role armed helicopter can be deployed in tactical, reconnaissance and transport operations. He is considered the best firefighter in the force.

The last in KDF' s unique battlefield equipment is the Bastion PATSAS personnel locomotive. This carrier is designed to transport five well equipped soldiers and is specially designed for elite forces.

Armed with a 12. 7 mm heavy machine gun ready to fire at the enemy. According to the Bastion Patsas website, the carrier is also armed with three strategically placed medium machine guns to avoid incoming damage.

The KDF has several of these operators and is specifically used in the AMISON mission in Somalia.

The Kenyan defense forces have more weapons and assure Kenyans of adequate protection against outside forces.
