Crisis-hit German army to spend millions on weapons & hardware - report

The German army is reportedly planning to spend millions on brand new rocket launchers, drones, helicopters and cargo aircraft to bridge gaps in its arsenal as the US pressures Berlin to do more for defense.

Germany’s Defense Ministry plans to purchase 18 items each costing more than €25 million (US$30 million), according to Handelsblatt and Bild. The list is, however, “preliminary” and may be altered, depending on the budget for 2018. It includes a number of MARS multiple launch rocket systems, seven rescue helicopters and six US-made C-130J Hercules cargo planes, Bild reported.
