“Worse than ever”: Bild told about the sorry state of the Bundeswehr
MOSCOW, may 27 — RIA Novosti. The Bundeswehr is in poor condition, writes Bild, citing a report by the Federal audit chamber of Germany.
It is noted that the Agency was accused defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen in concealing the faults of military equipment and “embellishment statistics”. According to the document, the statement of the Minister about the “readiness” of ships and planes often do not correspond to reality.
The newspaper reminds that last year no one German submarine was not fit for use. In addition, would have used less than half of the frigates, less than half tanks and only every third combat helicopter.
“Official statistics on combat readiness of the Bundeswehr already looked worse. And now it turns out that it’s not all”, — notes the edition.
The report of the Federal audit chamber of Germany States that the corvettes of the “alert” stated von der Leyen, have no weapons, the ships have no missiles, and for moving boats today are not enough crew members.
