National Liberation Army?[edit]

Why the article was renamed "National Liberation Army" when the name used by the own rebel forces is "Free Lybian Army", where is the sources of shuc afirmation? --Cloudaoc (talk) 17:06, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Free Libya Navy?[edit]

Should we create an own article for the Free Libya Navy? Currently, the naval forces are listed with the ground forces...134.155.36.48 (talk) 17:14, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

I also agree with this we should add a free libyan navy, because the rebels are using two battle crusiers and others ships. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.163.52.142 (talk) 10:44, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Name[edit]

If I could ask what are the sources that Libyan People´s Army is actually an official name of organized armed forces of TNC? Because sources within the article never name this armed forces as such and in this interview [1] with gen. Hefner AJE journalist calls army as "Free Libyan Army". If no one has any objections I´d like to recosider renaming this page. --EllsworthSK (talk) 00:31, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Agree In fact there's an Al-Jazeera interview with the rebel CinC, when the latter used the name "Free Libyan Army" when he speaks about its military.--Cloudaoc (talk) 17:06, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Extra Infromation to enhance the article[edit]

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/21/world/africa/21rebels.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1

This article has information on the equipment being used

On the "criticism" factor that the rebels have few child soldiers and are laying mines,etc And also about the factors that they are indisciplined and fire weapons without any command structure --Pranav (talk) 06:18, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Over use of citation needed[edit]

Does 'citation needed' be required for every single weapon? I do not see how anyone can doubt that the Rebels have RPG-7s seeing the hundreds of pictures showing the rebels with those very weapons. Seriously, asking 'citation needed' for such a thing is just silly. Yes I know it's a bot, but still. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.176.105.88 (talk) 02:39, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

I added those. If there are WP:RS supporting rebels' use of those weapons, then I don't want to do a Google search for them - I want to see them referenced. -Kudzu1 (talk) 04:41, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
Then do it yourself or delete the ones that seem unrealistic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.190.14.167 (talk) 04:49, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
no, "we recognize it in a picture" does not meet reliable source guidelines for Wiki. You either need to say they had RPGs in general or find a source to back up your allegation. We cannot just mutually agree that's what they are by looking at a picture. That's not how Wiki works.204.65.34.129 (talk) 20:24, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress which affects this page. Please participate at Talk:Libyan Armed Forces - Requested move and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 20:01, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Libyan National Army vs. National Liberation Army[edit]

Alright, folks. I think we have some misunderstanding regarding the name of these two units. During war we called all armed anti-Gaddafi forces as National Liberation Army, regardless of their chain of command, structure or organization as on paper they were all under authority of NTC and its defence ministry. However now, situation changed. We have militias - groups which are listed on the very same page - which falls under local military council. Than we have national army known as Libyan National Army that is in process or building itself, conscripting former militiamen, taking control over government property and for example was involved in Kufra conflict. That army has chain of command all the way from commander-in-chief Yousef Mangoush to lower NCOs, divided into three branches - ground forces, air forces and naval forces etc. Because military of Libya article was moved (fuck logic) I propose creation of new page named Libyan National Army and moving this page to its original titles National Liberation Army which activity would span solely during period of war, not beyond as NLA as whole is more or less shady name we gave to group which loosely coordinated between various militias but regained strong independence from Benghazi.

2 million members[edit]

How could this "army" possibly contain more than 2 million soldiers in a country of only 6 million people? Considering that about 30% of the total Libyan population hasn't even reached age 15 and the numerous people that have actually been supporting the Jamahiriya government and served in its army in the civil war. This would also place it 2nd to China's PLA in numbers of active personnel. 02:59, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
