It’s past bad. It’s hilarious.
Only 4 of the Bundeswehr’s 128 Tornadoes are operational.
Maybe that’s why Germany’s defense minister Ursula von der Leyen wants 12 billion euros “more for the German army than current budget plans foresee.” That won’t do it even if she gets it, of course. And to get anywhere near the 2 percent of GDP spending Germany has committed itself to spend you’d need more along the lines of 30 to 40 billion euros. But who’s counting?
Nur 4 von 128 Eurofightern kampfbereit: „Im Ernstfall kann man nur beten.”
