The German government has allocated funds for the purchase of American F-35 fighters

Germany has taken another step towards the acquisition of American fifth-generation F-35 fighters by allocating the necessary funds for their purchase. This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to the relevant document of the German government.


At the beginning of the month, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, speaking at a security conference in Berlin, promised that the issue with the purchase of American aircraft would be resolved before the end of this year. Four days later, the funds necessary for this were allocated. According to Bloomberg, the Germans plan to spend a total of $35 billion on the acquisition of 35 F-10,5 fighters. In addition to the aircraft themselves, the United States will supply Germany with air-to-ground missiles and help establish ground infrastructure for aircraft maintenance.

The funds are taken from a special fund of 100 billion euros, created specifically to serve the Bundeswehr. The start of aircraft delivery is expected in 2026, the end - in 2029.

As the Military Review already wrote in one of its news materials, the purchase of American F-35 fighters, Berlin intends to replace the already obsolete Tornado aircraft, which served as nuclear carriers in the Luftwaffe weapons. Now Germany is slowly decommissioning these aircraft, decommissioning them, intending to completely get rid of them by 2025. And in 2026, the F-35 will appear, which will replace them.

In general история with the purchase of F-35 fighters by the Germans is very interesting. At some point, Berlin refused to buy them, despite the persistent demands of the Americans. Instead, the Germans tried to certify the European fighter Eurofighter Typhoon as a carrier of nuclear weapons by sending a corresponding request to Washington. Naturally, they refused, leaving Germany with a choice to buy American aircraft, or be left without certified fighters. As a result, the F-35 was chosen in Berlin.

      Germany is being turned into a third world country. As soon as the inertia of that Germany ends, the EU will also end. France will not "pull", and Poland ... it's not even funny. Servants don't grow into kings

    The Germans again twisted their arms and bent them - either buy from the amers or an Indian folk hut and not adapt their Eurofighters to the US armament.
    Well, it was to be expected .... Continue the Germans under the United States to go to bed - the Americans twist and turn the Bundes as they want. laughing
    Wangyu - soon the Americans Abrashek will force the Germans to buy - Leo will become uncertified for NATO ammunition and so on. lol

      Eurofighters are the machines of yesterday, well, today. Comparing them to the F-35 is like comparing the Su-30 to the Su-57. And there are no other 5th generation machines. Well, Europe dragged on with this. In general, European armies today are just beginning to revive after 20 years of degradation.

        You might think that the F35 is just the same device of tomorrow .....

        PS For the Germans and the French bent in the same way. Although the French have their own nuclear power plants and they are not in the same energy situation as the Bundes. But probably Macron still will not argue with the hegemon.

      Clarification: uncertified for the use of nuclear weapons.
      Germany got its own nuclear weapons???
      It seems to me that someone is violating the non-proliferation treaty...

      Figase was unscrewed. This is obtained at 287 million apiece. Or is it with missiles? Anyway, horse price tags. However, this was expected. laughing

    Voluntarily and with songs chosen. But such purchases imply, in addition to the supply of vehicles, also a long-term service contract, a contract for the supply of weapons, and much more, which also costs a lot of money. In short, the Americans pulled the Germans on the most do not indulge, and they are also grateful ... Or they pretend.

    How Americans "love" the Germans. Either Tornado was shoved in, then Lighting 2. Both of them did not satisfy the United States in terms of their characteristics.

    It turns out that if you scrape the bottom of the barrel, then you can score on the "kolobok". And they cry that almost kirdyk comes. The Americans win again.

    Something new in budget planning. Is this "defense budget" -2? Or is it a "tribute to the hegemon"? wink ".... In addition to the new budget, parliamentarians approved the creation of a special fund of € 100 billion to strengthen the German Armed Forces. To do this, it was necessary to amend the constitution to circumvent the rules prohibiting taking such large loans...."

    That is, the Germans will write off all their planes and saw them in 24. And the Americans will begin to supply theirs to them only at 26. And that may or may not be. But the money for them must be paid now. It seems to me alone that the Fritz were bred as the last suckers?

    It didn’t drag out by itself, Uncle Sam diligently cleaned out the competitors.
    What kind of revival is there, what are you talking about. European armies will be only "useful Indians" in the service of Uncle Sam. The weapons will be American and command over them will finally go to American generals.

    The nuclear non-proliferation regime in the past. Why not transfer nuclear weapons to Iran, Syria, and Cuba?
