Bundeswehr doesn’t have enough equipment to carry out NATO missions

38
After news about the lack of armored vehicles in the German army, the German media voiced another problem. The newspaper Rheinische Post has published material on the critical situation in the field of logistics of the Bundeswehr. The army lacks body armor, winter uniforms and tents to fulfill its responsibilities to NATO as part of the creation of the rapid reaction force group, the publication reports


Bundeswehr doesn’t have enough equipment to carry out NATO missions


As previously reported, at the beginning of 2019, the Bundeswehr must play a decisive role in creating an international high-alert operational group, Spearhead (Speerspitze). The NATO project envisages an increased combat readiness of five thousand troops, who should, if necessary, begin operations at any point during the 48-72 hours.

With regard to mobile location during operations, the army lacks combat capability at least until 2021
- quotes the publication of a military command document.

It is noted that 2018-2020 requires 10 282 "equipment units to accommodate" military personnel, while at the disposal of the army there are only 2,5 thousands. The Bundeswehr also suffers from a lack of winter uniforms and body armor.

      The army of modern Germany is far from the army of Hitler ...
      the Nazi SSs were very combat-ready fighting units ... young people of the 30s were purposefully prepared for war from a young age.
      The modern youth of Germany in the Bundeswehr is something ... what Do you think this is an army of gays ... or buggers ... or all together ... how to fight with such LGBT units.

        I agree. However, in the 70-80s they were in second place after the Soviet Army ... According to the press.

          The Bundeswehr was undoubtedly a powerful force, but in second place it was never. Yielded to the Americans, and the British, and the French. The fleet and the air force have always been relatively small. Many types of weapons and equipment were forbidden to have. But the ground forces in the Bundeswehr occupied a much larger percentage of the number of personnel and in comparison with the Americans. French, British. This caused dissatisfaction with the West German "right", who called the Bundeswehr "colonial infantry." But our propaganda for a number of reasons in the 60-70s. exaggerated the power of the Bundeswehr.

        But that's good. Or do you think otherwise? That Germany should again turn into a militaristic rabid dog?
        It’s good that modern Germans have changed their priorities in life.

            If we talk about the Germans, then they had enough WWII results for their eyes and there are not so many revengeists there. They will continue to sabotage the development of their Armed Forces contrary to the interests of NATO, so that they are not drawn into the war against the Russians again.

    The German army lacks bulletproof vests, tents and winter uniforms, but they will fight in the Sharp Spears high alert group. Well, with sharp spears or stakes in your hands, you will remember the battle of Moscow in the Second World War. It looks like a memory lost.

        Oh, I would give a lot to collect the best (professional) generals of the Wehrmacht and some from the top of the then Germany, and now show SUCH Germany to them tongue good . In addition to hell pans, they would be tormented by pain for “meaninglessly ditched years and forces” to get SUCH. tongue

    how is everyone touching about us worrying ...
    yes, over the past 25 years it seemed to us that there was no threat and money for the army should be saved and it would be better to spend it on medicine, education, etc.
    until the beginning of 1990, Germany had thousands of tanks and a combat ready Bundeswehr. Now - shish. We will look at you and catch up and correct.

    and yet - somehow the current state of NATO and the Bundeswehr does not fit with the cries of "aggressive NATO wants to gobble up Mother Russia"

            however you are a comedian, my friend.

            I guess you’re sitting on a sofa in Chinese clothes (to the extreme in German adidas) and are going to produce caps for us. Well, come on, surprise us incapable.

              Not on the couch, but in the armchair ... They no longer guessed it. And the clothes, I won’t even look, are not interesting. "I don’t care what color the cat is, if only she catches mice ..."
              As I think in other matters to you, in this matter ... And on the account of the “German” “Adidas” - I’m certainly a comedian, but he’s not German for a long time ... China, nevertheless, is an independent state. And most of all I liked the Chinese "Nike".

      So there really is no threat! And if it were then there is nothing to oppose the European Union. Therefore, Germany can calm down and engage in the economy! The only threat in Europe is the emigrants, but the police can handle it.

    It is necessary to reassure the “partners”: warm gauntlets will certainly be handed out to the Bundeswehr at the harvester logging sites. Who will carry out the plan - an additional two pieces of sugar for tea! At the hospital everyone is guaranteed a free measurement of body temperature - free of charge, measurement of rectal temperature - for an additional fee according to the price list.

    It’s good to read this, but do not flatter yourself guys, the Germans know how to fight at the genetic level in the same way (well, maybe a little less) as we do. And if a large war develops into a more or less prolonged phase, they will find both equipment and ammunition. All this has already passed, the provision for everyone is always getting better slowly

    This is very strange ... Where then did you share all the equipment? It could be outdated, but for that it just had to be in stock since the last years of the existence of the USSR. Just don’t say that they sold out in Ukraine, the Germans are not like that.

    I already wrote that certain forces in Germany sleep and see their tanks in the East. True in 1941. they recklessly invaded Russia without winter uniforms, for now everything is okay with that. I feel with skin that the current generation of Russians will again have to clash with the Fritz.
