    German army admits most of its newly acquired military hardware is faulty & unfit for service
    1 Nov 2018

    " The bulk of the new military equipment delivered to the German Armed Forces last year is not ready for service, the German Defense Ministry has admitted, as the force struggles to free itself from a torrent of failures.

    Out of 97 pieces of military equipment delivered to the Armed Forces in 2017, only 38 are fully operational, the German Defense Ministry acknowledged, in response to a parliamentary inquiry. The proportion of working equipment works out at about 39 percent, but the ministry hopes to boost these figures to 70 percent.

    The fate of the cutting-edge Puma Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV) and the Airbus A400M military transport aircraft is what concerns the German military the most. Produced jointly by the German Kraus Maffei-Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall corporations, the 43-ton Puma is thought to be one of the world's best-protected IFVs, while still having a high power-to-weight ratio. However, the ministry's figures reveal that only 27 out of 71 IFVs delivered to the army in 2017 were actually combat-ready."

    ". . . Last autumn, Germany was literally left without its entire submarine fleet as all of them were either on maintenance or in dire need of repairs. In November 2017, it also became known that more than half of the Bundeswehr's tank fleet is unfit for service. Only 95 out of 244 Leopard 2 main battle tanks were said to be combat-ready, while the remaining tanks were either disarmed or lacked critical spare parts."

    In my opinion; The Government Germany these days there is about policing political thought. Thus collecting warfare and being higher up the food chain in there police state. Honesty and quality of workmanship, expression or self reliance takes a back seat.

    Well put truebeliver; The shame and frustration our racial kinsmen suffering in silence in Europe. The honest white people who had their life's ruined is very sad. A extreme apartheid rules based system that excludes all other religions and races is the best solution for our white nation states.

    Yes, I agree. I have been following the European military situation for many years. Trump is right about the other NATO countries use the USA for piggy bank and security police while neglecting their Armed Forces. There are third world countries with better equipped arm forces. As a example one Nato country did not have enough rifles for their units in the recent 2018 Norwegian War Games and handed out broom sticks instead.

    I think Merkel's goal is to weaken Germany and all of Europe so it will be overrun by the migrants.

    It is a matter of time before all of European will erupt into one big Civil War. A Civil War of Race and not Nations. It will make the American Civil War and WW2 look like a minor police actions.
