German air force will switch to American F-35


At a German security conference in Berlin, Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced plans to sign a contract with Washington to purchase fifth-generation F-35 fighter jets.


American aircraft will have to replace the obsolete Tornado, which expires in 2025. At the same time, the chancellor said that the purchase of the F-35 will be aimed at the possibility of Germany using nuclear weapons. Thus, Scholz plans to violate the Treaty on the final settlement with respect to Germany, which entered into force on March 15, 1991.

According to this document, Berlin cannot produce and have neither atomic, nor chemical, nor biological weapons on its own territory. However, this does not prevent American nuclear weapons from being located on the territory of this country within the framework of NATO's strategic concept. According to various sources, up to 20 US nuclear bombs are located at the Büchel airbase.

But, judging by the decision of the German Ministry of Finance, Scholz may not receive money for American fighters. The German financial department has already refused to allocate 20 billion euros to the Bundeswehr to cover the shortage of ammunition. Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht spoke about half-empty warehouses due to aid to Ukraine.

According to her, the amount of ammunition in the German arsenals is only enough for 30 days of hostilities. However, the announced deficit does not prevent Berlin from actively supplying weapons, air defense systems and ammunition to Ukrainian militants.

      Another recycling manager, whose duties include the recycling of the indigenous population, like Zelensky. but if the Germans are shortened and corrected, then the Ukrainians have no chance at all.

    Judging by similar news earlier, there will be F35 in Germany.
    No choice . First of all, they will run out. Secondly, it is a bomber and a fighter in one person - double savings. Thirdly, HPP in action.

    So the Germans, as it were, agreed with the French to create their own fighter in order not to buy this FU 35. Looks like a white father from Washington promised "Liver Sausage" with "Macaroni" to make pasta from them in the Navy.

    It's not certain that they will. So far, some smart Germans are spinning, as if under a pitchfork. And, not being able to send the hell out of the United States with its occasionally flying scrap metal, they come up with excuses for transferring any issues to the future. According to the principle, either the donkey will die, or the padishah, or Hodge.
    About versatility. Any universal thing does only one thing better than highly specialized ones - it's worth it! Its price is sky-high, and the characteristics are shitty. In the case of the F-35, the situation is further aggravated by futile attempts to achieve invisibility in certain radio bands. I am already silent about the fact that the F-35, in fact, is the Trojan horse of the USSR (Yak-141), which 3.14ndos cannot even copy properly.
    So instead of saving, the Germans will teach crap and incompetent equipment.

    If you are talking about this, then it will still not be an HPP, but an HP of the USSR.

    Why don't you share the link? Where is the most sensible written about these joint plans?
