The German army was left without new shoes

75
The armed forces of Germany are ready for the country's defense only conditionally. To the problems of material and technical sense, problems with clothing allowance were added - the Bundeswehr was left without shoes. This is written by the German edition The World.


The German army was left without new shoes


According to the newspaper, the supply of the Bundeswehr is in poor condition, recently the German army was faced with the problem of a shortage of basic necessities, namely army shoes. The reason for this was the huge supply delays that arose due to the country's "limited industrial production capacity". The original plan was that the Bundeswehr troops will receive new shoes before the end of next year.

The full implementation of the new military shoe system for the armed forces in accordance with current planning will be completed before the end of the second quarter of 2022

- The Ministry of Defense said in response to a request.

The German military department explained that of the standard set, which included two pairs of heavy boots and one pair of light boots, a sufficient number of soldiers were issued only one pair of heavy shoes - 160 thousand pairs with the Bundeswehr in 183 thousand, the publication indicates. In this case, only 31 thousand soldiers were provided with light boots. It is noted that a shoe change in the Bundeswehr was planned back in the 2016 year.

Planes don't fly Tanks don’t drive, and the guns don’t shoot. The equipment of the Bundeswehr is deplorable. The rating "conditionally ready for defense" is quite suitable

- summarizes the author of the material.

The new Minister of Defense of Germany, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, also drew attention to the army’s problems in material and technical and clothing support and stated that the military “needed the most modern and reliable equipment”, but just didn’t explain how to buy it.

      NG should be sent, the Germans are rich, they will buy at their own expense. Vaughn in / in Ukraine, all relatives are dumped and bought ATOshnikov clothes, and the Germans are worse.

      Yes FPG second-hand form (and new) was on sale in stores in the West. We took overalls, jackets, boots in England. Qualitatively made.

    You can, of course, gloat about this, but now they are just like ours, "with one pair of heavy". And light, like ours, most likely they buy for their own.

      Surprised about the Bundeswehr.
      For Finns, for example, the personnel is equipped with clothes, shoes completely, to the smallest detail. Everything is convenient, practical, new.
      2 pairs of heavy, 1 pair of light, more rubber slippers for shower / sauna and pool activities. A personal sleeping bag and a thick neoprene bedding for outdoor nights, 2 backpacks (large and small).
      It was nice to see.

    And it writes, mind you, the German media. At the same time, the other German media, Deutsche Welle, does not shut up in attacks on Russia, its army, the president, cynically misinterprets the history of the 2nd MV, in particular the Second World War ... So how will you fight it will be painful?

      Haiksy and Lova in which they go can live peacefully for more than one season. Or how can I put it in the study period. Our statutory loads survive from 3 to 6 months.
      It is difficult to replace, and many like it are not disgusting to buy with their money.
      It is necessary for the Germans to laugh, having received, instead of three pairs of high-quality shoes, one of course. But to believe that this is the end of the Bundeswehr is not worth the word at all.
      And by the way, I have marshmallows on all the training grounds (except for the presence of high bosses) on Lov’s feet, they’re already three years old and they don’t have demolition.

        So this is how they sew in you in Kuev, but in the Russian Army they don’t have a demolition, I have already had such a pair for 11 years and they don’t have a demolition yet (though the heel was a little worn during this period, so it’s not a problem, there are horseshoes for this ). Well, what did you want, everything is not human there, most likely, the stripes delivered to you, they received money from you and washed off again.

          Which Kuev? Before you judge something clarifying questions ask. For example, you could ask about belonging to the Armed Forces and would hear that as a serviceman of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation I judge objectively.
          In the Russian army, the berets are statutory and do not live under loads for years, and if 11 years the statutory may have been different, then now everything is completely wrong))

            Bertsa are the same as before.
            About 10 years ago, it was possible to wear unregulated berets in some parts, but now this cannot be done (now they have a uniform for everyone) and no one would have allowed you to wear other berets.

    The promoted Germans are certainly positive. And how are things with this at our army at the moment? Mentally, I try to calculate the number of pairs of tights that I personally bought during the service, correlating it with the set and issued. Relations are obtained overhead .. for me .. On me the state, to put it mildly, did not go broke. I’m not even trying to count the other things, because it’s unrealistic. About all sorts of stars with chevrons there I will not say anything at all, it’s not worth talking about such a trifle .. And the bloated Bundeswehr is certainly ridiculous, woe-warriors with a woman at the head .. haha.

    The new Minister of Defense of Germany, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, also drew attention to the army’s problems in material and technical and clothing support and stated that the military “needed the most modern and reliable equipment”, but just didn’t explain how to buy it.

    No problem! We can issue a microloan at 5% per day for kirzachi laughing

    It’s necessary not to gloat while discussing the problem of a foreign army pulled from the nose, but to look at ours. Is it good with shoes and clothes ?! .

      I agree completely. and now we dress in imports whenever possible. 90 percent of the entire body kit and 100 percent of shoes are imported. 6 years we buy Lowa ourselves because what they give out for the task flies in 2 weeks. minus but it's true

          I didn’t wear it myself, but there are colleagues who wear it and rejoice only on the road. Many are still starting to buy American marine marine sleeping bags, a three-layer one. Heavy is a minus - especially when the struggle for grams begins. But awesome in pvd for example, or if the output is not very distant. Gorteks layer and yes internal summer and black winter.

              Well, it’s rather from the opportunity to purchase. We have a lot of Austrian Carinthians and already about 15 pieces of sleeping systems. So it was and with each season more and more. This system to -45 degrees works awesome. Also, as everywhere else, he took one, they rarely appeared, then another one and it started.

            Especially at the present time, the paratroopers of the Airborne Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are happy and are happy to wear an improved everyday - VKPO and ceremonial (blue) uniform. In the first place we have in the airborne regiment at the entrance of the "Faraday" boots

      I agree with your statements and conclusions. In the Russian Army today, most of the soldiers in self-sufficiency in military uniforms and shoes are bertz! I personally complete the uniform for myself and berets through Voentorg - both everyday VKPO and front door!

    But von der Leyen is now not badly settled in the EU leadership. If she will also "rule" there as in the Bundeswehr, then it will not seem like a little.
