German officer: The Bundeswehr is expected to have a total shortage of weapons by 2025

The voices of militarists and lobbyists of the military-industrial complex are heard in Europe more and more loudly. For example, the head of the Union of Bundeswehr military personnel, Andre Wüstner, on the air of the German TV channel ZDF, criticized the German authorities for economy Germany has not yet been transferred to the "military rails".

In his words, in political German circles still do not understand the importance and necessity of this process. Nor do they think about the consequences of delay. Currently, Germany is in a difficult situation, as her army is "bare". Everything that Berlin transfers to Kyiv needs to be promptly replenished, but this does not happen because of the sluggishness of the functionaries.

He stressed that he expects a total shortage of weapons by 2025. It is simply unprofitable for military-industrial complex companies to produce products because of the cost of energy resources. At the same time, the Bundeswehr will not be able to purchase everything they need if manufacturers raise prices for their products. Thus, it is necessary to allocate more money for defense.

What kind of supply of tanks to another country can we even talk about? <...> And if we go to the end, and this will not be enough (transfer of Leopard 2 tanks - Ed.)? <...> There is still no understanding that we should move to a semblance of a war economy

- said a German officer, discussing the state of the Bundeswehr.

    That's when you run out of all weapons, we will come to you and you will answer for everything! Remember the words of the Iron Chancellor von Bismarck, and if you forgot, read them, they are carved on your monument! But I think it's too late, you all blew it!

    And what prevents destroying bridges across the Dnieper in order to crush everything in the Donbass with shell hunger? The destruction of the railway is hardly realizable, difficult and costly, the operation to block the railway in the west is actually suicide, but the destruction of all bridges Really and easily Ukraine is divided into 2 parts by this river and only bridges connect it. Destroy giant bridges and railway x22 a small suicide drones, you don’t even need to completely destroy it enough to damage it so that the tractor with the equipment does not drive further. All battles take place on the right-bank Ukraine and the supply of the APU always crosses the river
    Why is Ukraine in the rear of Russia destroying bridges and Russia is not? Ukraine can only provide suicide squads to the DRG, while Russia has thousands of missiles, aircraft, artillery

      I think because these are not bridges in the classical sense. This is the outer part of various hydrodams. Even if I try to implement it, it's hard for me to imagine how many rockets it will take to continue monolithic concrete.

      And if we talk about classic bridges, then in the USSR they were still built from concrete, and not just metal structures. How many expensive missiles does it take to hit relatively small support structures? I think 2 rockets will go to each support. And this is half the trouble, nevertheless, the bridges are in the rear, which means that the enemy has already prepared special equipment in advance for their quick restoration. Then it turns out that the bridges must be destroyed not just on some randomly chosen day, but on the day of a major offensive, so that while the process of their restoration is underway, everything would have been done.

    If an enemy waging war with you tells you that he is running out of weapons - what does this really mean? Well, how do you answer

      (Aleksey) Firstly, Germany is not at war with the Russian Federation. Secondly, Germany will make every effort to stop the supply of high-quality weapons for Ukraine's IEDs (Blocking the supply of Leopard-2, etc.). Germany is doing its best to maintain mutually beneficial cooperation with the Russian Federation. Only the stupidity of the leaders and the venality of the liberals under the power of the Russian Federation led to such a catastrophic situation. The main problems are in the Russian Federation itself, it is not in vain that the instigators of the problems, the Israelis, fled en masse from the Russian Federation, but many still remain - the Peskovs, Lavrovs, and others with offspring in the USA, and so on.

        Germany remains one of the leading members of NATO. This is a military organization.
        The coherence of Germany's actions in the US gang at key moments in recent years suggests that it by no means neglects military discipline. Its elite demonstrates complete obedience to their masters.
        Disinformation of the enemy is the basis of warfare.
        I think that the western chorus about the shortage of weapons is as well orchestrated as its recent support for self-destructive sanctions against Russia.

    They would not have been able to produce weapons if Putin had retaliated against the gas pipelines to Britain and from Norway, destroying all the main cables at the same time. One can certainly hope for such a step after the end of the active phase of hostilities, but Putin is spineless, so this will never happen. It's just not possible given his nature.
