Las Fuerzas Armadas de Angola (FAA) está dirigida por un Jefe de Gabinete que depende del Ministro de Defensa. Son tres divisiones: el Ejército (Exército), la Armada (Marinha de Guerra, SMG), y la Fuerza Aérea Nacional (Força Aérea Nacional, FAN). El número total de efectivos es de 110.000. El ejército es por mucho el mayor de los servicios con cerca de 100.000 hombres y mujeres. Los efectivos de la Marina cerca de 3.000 y operan varias pequeñas embarcaciones de patrulla y barcazas. España pretendió vender el portaaviones Principe de Asturias (R-11), una Corbeta tipo Descubierta, Aviones Harrier, Helicópteros, Buques de transporte, así como otros efectivos navales. Dicha operación fue cancelada por la Marina de Guerra Angolana (MGA).
La Fuerza Aérea cuyo personal asciende a alrededor de 7.000, y su equipo incluye cazas Mig-23, bombarderos y aviones de transporte Il-86 e Il-76. Hay también 312 Tucano de fabricación brasileña para la formación del personal, L-39 de fabricación checa como entrenadores y bombarderos, Zlín checos para entrenamiento y una variedad de aviones de fabricación occidental como C-212 \ Aviocar, Sud Aviation Alouette III, etc. Un pequeño número de personal de la FAA está estacionado en la República Democrática del Congo (Kinshasa) y la República del Congo (Brazzaville).

Angolan Air Force acquires six AW109s
The Angolan Air Force has been confirmed as a new customer for the AgustaWestland (Leonardo Helicopters) AW109E Power, with one of its six aircraft on order carrying out flight testing in Italy.

A new example in Angolan National Air Force colours was seen during a flight test in Italy on June 20. The aircraft had a brown, green and sand coloured camouflage scheme with an Angolan flag on the tail, reports Air Forces Daily.

Angola ordered six helicopters in a 90 million euro deal last year, along with two patrol boats and radar systems from Italy. On 23 December, Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos signed several contracts with Finmeccanica for the equipment, but at the time it was not known what type of helicopters were being acquired. The radar portion of the contract is said to be worth 115 million euros. Another contract, worth around 7.3 million euros, is for two fast patrol craft built by Whitehead Sistemi Subacquei, also part of Finmeccanica.

Although Angolan defence spending has risen dramatically in recent years, and was last year estimated to go from $6.5 billion to $13 billion by 2019, the sudden drop in oil prices appears to have affected the country’s defence procurement plans as Angola relies on oil for half of its GDP.

The oil price drop may affect the purchase of seven Macae class vessels from Brazil, with Brazilian media in May last year reporting that Angola does not have the money to pay for them. They were procured in 2014 as part of Angola’s Naval Power Development Programme (Pronaval).

Angola has been making sporadic military hardware purchases over the last five years, including six EMB-314 Super Tucanos delivered in 2013, eight MT-LB armoured personnel carriers delivered from Bulgaria in 2014; four Super Dvora patrol craft ordered from Israel in 2015; four Mi-171Sh helicopters delivered in 2015 and 12 Su-30K fighter jets ordered in 2013. Deliveries of the upgraded Su-30Ks should be completed this year. Denel Mechem is supplying 45 Casspirs while the United States delivered six Cessna 172Rs for pilot training in 2013.

Angola’s air force currently flies Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters and is believed to have half a dozen AS565 Panthers, a dozen Alouette IIIs and several SA 315B Lamas, SA342M Gazelles and Bell 212s in its inventory. A large proportion of Angola’s air force is in a state of disrepair due to a lack of maintenance or is in storage.

Angolan military exercise reveals new Chinese armoured vehicles

Erwan de Cherisey, Paris - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly 

16 February 2017

The Angolan military is now operating Chinese-made NORINCO WMA301 tank destroyers and the command-post variant of the WZ551 armoured personnel carrier (APC), footage and still images from a recent military exercise have revealed.

The WMA301 is already known to be in service in Cameroon, Chad, Djibouti, and Senegal and has been deployed operationally in northern Cameroon, northeast Nigeria, and The Gambia.

An Angolan officer told local media that the tank destroyers were delivered in 2016, but did not say how many were received.
The vehicles were unveiled during a military exercise conducted in Soba Matias in the southern province of Cuando Cubango on 29 January under the umbrella of the 50th Motorised Infantry Brigade of the Angolan Army's 5th Division.

Chief of Defence Staff General Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda told Angolan media that the exercise was aimed at validating a new training process that was introduced for army recruits and future officers in March 2016.

It lasted 12 hours and involved more than 3,500 men and women from the Angolan Armed Forces (Forças Armadas Angolanas: FAA), including special forces, helicopters from the Angolan National Air Force (Força Aérea Nacional de Angola: FANA), CBRN specialists, and naval infantry who were tasked with conducting a riverine assault.

According to Angolan military sources quoted by local media, 20 main battle tanks; 32 APCs; 24 fire support vehicles, mortars, and artillery pieces; and an unspecified number of anti-aircraft guns took part.

Television news footage of the exercise showed T-72s and T-55 tanks, BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, MT-LB APCs, BM-21 multiple rocket launchers, and Zu-23-4 anti-aircraft guns, as well as the WMA301s and WZ551s. Recently delivered Mil Mi-171Sh helicopters were used to insert special forces.

Defence Minister João Lourenço, who attended the exercise, congratulated the FAA hierarchy for the professionalism displayed by the troops during the exercise and noted that the Angolan government's commitment to modernising and professionalising its military would continue.
