Informations

Cameroon Armed Forces, also known as Forces armees camerounaises or FAC (French: Cameroon Armed Forces) is the military of Cameroon. There are 14,200 soldiers in the armed forces, including ground, air and naval personnel. The army has approximately 12,500 troops across three military areas. Cameroonian Navy consists of approximately 1,300 soldiers, headquartered in Douala. The Air Force has fewer than 400 soldiers. The Air Force also includes 9,000 paramilitary soldiers that are used as a gendarmerie or reconnaissance role. Air Force bases can be found in Garoua (Younde), Douala, Bamenda, and Douala.



It has always been an apolitical military force, with civilian control over the military. Although the French defense capabilities are less important, the traditional dependence on them continues. French military advisors continue to closely assist in the preparation of Cameroonian forces to deploy to the disputed Bakassi Peninsula. China and Cameroon have a military-military partnership that includes military training for Cameroonian students every year in China, technical advisers to help repair Cameroonian naval vessels and military vehicles, and military sales.
