Meanwhile, in February, information appeared that the Bundeswehr could not successfully participate in the NATO Rapid Spear Force of NATO, since the German soldiers were not equipped in sufficient quantities with body armor, winter uniforms and tents.
As for the placement of soldiers in field conditions, ground forces are limited in their capacity until at least 2021- says the report of the ground forces command to the German Ministry of Defense.
The newspaper Die Welt, citing a confidential document of the Ministry of Defense of Germany, said that the armed forces are not enough serviceable tanks and other military equipment to participate in exercises. As indicated in the document, of the 44 Leopard 2 tanks in service with the training tank brigade number 9 in Munster, only nine are suitable for participation in NATO missions, and only three out of 14 Marder infantry fighting vehicles needed for this purpose.
