The French military lacks heavy-lift military transports like the C-17. All they have are light or medium ones. Hence why they asked the British and Canadians to loan their C-17s to the effort in Mali, and had to lease Antonov-124s from Russia.
There aren’t trucks already there that can be commandeered?
