The Central African republic is a land-locked country in, how surprising, Central Africa. It gained its indepence from France on 13 August 1960 and that country still has a presence and influence. The armed forces are minute and consist of only a handful of aircraft. All these are based at Bangui-M'Poko airport.
Latest acquisition are two Mi-24V attack helicopters sourced in the Ukraine and a second hand C-130.
