The German edition reported on the problems of the Bundeswehr with the implementation of several military projects

Several major military projects of the Bundeswehr were in jeopardy. The reason for this is the unapproved military budget. This is reported by the German edition Der Spiegel.


According to the document of the German Ministry of Defense, which the magazine refers to, due to unapproved funding, the two largest military projects of the FRG in recent years are in jeopardy. We are talking about a program to create a sixth generation aircraft, developed jointly with France and Spain, as well as the latest tank, on which work is being carried out jointly with France, the tank should in the future replace the German "Leopards" and French "Leclairs".

In addition, underfunding threatens to disrupt the program of creating a new submarine, on which the Norwegians are working together with the Germans. At what stage the work is now not reported.

The rest of the projects, for which no funds have been allocated either, which arouses the indignation of the Bundeswehr, are not so global, but also extremely important for the German military. Due to underfunding, the German Navy cannot purchase two Boeing P-8A patrol aircraft, two tankers, as well as new service boats intended, apparently, for the command of the Navy.

It is noted that the problems arose due to a sharp reduction in budget funds planned for allocation after 2022. And if funds for global projects, albeit with a delay, are allocated, then many smaller ones may remain unrealized.

      Yes, they have everything. If Germany has no money, then who has it in Europe? The bureaucrats simply did not have time to approve the budget, and besides, these programs are designed for many years to come. Here a couple of months delay does not play a special role.

    And who does not have these problems? And always in the first place - the budget, and only then everything else ...

    I don't quite understand how this can happen:
    Several major military projects of the Bundeswehr were in jeopardy. The reason for this is the unapproved military budget.
    -the federal budget for 2021 was adopted by the Bundestag in December last year.
    Then speech, apparently, is more correct to say that not all "Wishlist" of the military-industrial complex are taken into account in it?
    But excuse me, the article is also about ongoing projects, and in Germany, like ours, contracts are concluded only if budget funds are available for these purposes. Budget ordnung, however)))
    Therefore, it is more likely that it is just their Ministry of Defense and the military-industrial complex trying to pass off their more and more new projects as vital and urgently in need of additional funds. Well, or a banal squabble between various groups of the military-industrial complex for the redistribution of the budget in their favor.

    The Germans do not need this, they are reluctant to fight, it is better to let the money be invested in the civil economy. When you have your own house, in the courtyard of a Mercedes, Saturday and Sunday, a German's desire to serve in the army disappears.

      Their wars led to an understanding of the wisdom of being. In terms of the Russian Federation, especially, when asked what they think about the revenge, three Germans said to me, they didn’t go to Russia. And this is good for everyone.
