The German air force’s planes are in a sorry state, says the German Air Force Chief of Staff...

Germany is under mounting pressure to tackle equipment shortages in its military that fellow NATO nations fear is eroding the country’s combat capability, Reuters reported.

The German air force’s planes are in a sorry state and the country needs urgent funding to modernize them, the air force chief of staff, Lt.-Gen. Ingo Gerhartz, told a meeting of industry executives, military officers and lawmakers in Berlin on Wednesday.

“The Luftwaffe is at a low point,” Reuters quoted Gerhartz as saying.

Gerhartz said this assessment was based on a series of inspections of the country’s air force sites and discussions with military personnel.

“Aircraft are grounded due to a lack of spare parts, or they aren’t even on site since they’re off for maintenance by the industry,” he noted, adding that an inspection of Eurofighter multirole combat jets had taken a whole 14 months, twice  as long as than originally planned, which he said was unacceptable.

First things first.

For you fairies that will point to Sputnik and say that its false news I say get some common sense!  They're a news aggregator.  Why do you see them so often on this blog?  SIMPLE!  They cover a variety of defense news THAT IS NOT COVERED by other news outlets!


Drink in this news.

The once mighty German armed forces are in shit state.  Their own leadership is claiming that its falling apart before their eyes.

You think Russia is a threat?


They can sit back and simply let nature takes its course.  The only smell coming from the German military is rot and decay.  Any predator or scavenger can smell it from a mile away.  Why attack it when its death is imminent without the waste of calories or the risk of personal injury.  You just wait till it falls over.....
