    It is difficult for Germany to be one of the leading donors of the European Union.

      No, it’s just that in 2011, Serdyukov appeared in the Ministry of Defense in Germany. In general, the Sredyukovschina in my opinion has recently acquired a global scale. yes

      The probability of Germany participating in the war is very low, and I can’t even guess who she could fight with now, so at this stage it’s really permissible for them to have a nominal army and forces to counter internal unrest.

    This is by the way the issue of the power of aviation enterprises.
    "The initial agreement for the supply of 80 aircraft (50 units for the military and 30 units for the air force) was placed in June 2000. The second contract for the supply of 42 helicopters (30 units for the military and 12 units for the air force) was signed in June 2007. "

    That is, for 12 years and three months the first contract (80 cars) has not been fulfilled, the second contract (42 cars) for 5 years has also not been fulfilled, they still fulfill it. So how much do they build per year?

    Sleep well, 20-30 combat helicopters a year will be more than enough for us with such Germans.

      I think we need to take more care of our own, if you collect all of NATO, then such a bee swarm can sneak up on us.

    Do you want to know if the economy of a country is healthy? Look at the military budget! Any economic downturn, let alone crisis, will hit the defense industry in the first place.

    On the other hand, why do they need so many turntables against whom they should fight? The neighbors are all calm, if there are hesitant then only pugs.

    A helicopter for war at the European Theater, in principle, in such quantities is not needed right now, besides, the Germans are not yet very eager to fight in colonial wars, and if anything, British Apaches can be attracted to solve the interests of the NATO bloc

    In terms of the number of modern combat helicopters, Russia has already outstripped countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom, although in terms of GDP per capita it is 3-4 times behind them. So you need to think about this crisis or just common sense
