A serious military cost a serious amount of money! If we want back to conspriction the size of the Bundeswehr will have to be seriously be increased which cost a serious amount of money.Grey Havoc said:https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/08/06/germany-debates-return-national-service-amid-serious-military/
Unfortunately the German defence industry is in such a mess that in the short term at least, they are likely going to have to use designs already in existence, built or otherwise.A replacement for the foolishly retired Gepard SPAAGs is also urgently needed. Arguably, the Bundeswehr also needs something along the lines of the old Liberty system."
I would think the German's would be more than capable of developing and fielding something along the lines of the 2k22 Tunguska, rather than the seemingly heavier "Liberty system" - a combination of a modernised/evolusionised Roland SAM and 35mm Oerlikon KDA cannons
cannons (and I emphasise without the fashionable improvised FIM-92 Stinger!!!)
Hmm, but what chassis to base such a system on??
The US has threatened to withdraw thousands of troops stationed in Germany amid a dispute with Angela Merkel’s government over defence spending.www.telegraph.co.uk
