Central African Republic Parachute Badges


Recommended Posts


The Central African Armed Forces (French: Forces armées centrafricaines; FACA) are the armed forces of the Central African Republic and have been barely functional since the outbreak of the civil war in 2012. Today they are among the world's weakest armed forces, dependent on international support to provide security in the country. In recent years the government has struggled to form a unified national army. For a brief while in the 1980's, CAR had an Airborne unit of Battalion strength. Shown here are the known Parachute Badges and insignia from that small African nation. These badges are relatively scarce The beret badge with the black panther is original, but beware of copies floating around. It is not known if they still have any Parachute Trained Units.
