The condition of the military of the fleet of Germany was called "shame"


The American magazine The National Interest has so expressed Deutsche Marine (Naval Forces of Germany). the military fleet of Germany had

simple tasks in recent years. Of course, his vessels participated together with the allies in fight against piracy attacks, such as operation ATALANTA in East Africa, his ships participated in rescue of refugees in the Mediterranean Sea and also concerning the ban of weapon at coast of Lebanon. The photos of the ships of the Navy of Germany helping to save unfortunate refugees represent the public figure of the Bundeswehr thus as any Eurofighter fighter or the Leopard 2 tank will never be able.

Despite positive public perception, a mission of marines is in fulfilling the obligations to NATO. Unfortunately, because of bad planning and decision-making and lack of financing the military fleet of Germany isn't able to carry out the main objectives of a mission. If there are no fast changes, his opportunities even more will worsen in the next years. It is possible to call a condition of the fleet a shame. Though it is easy to explain bad condition with "reduction of the budget", problems of the Navy are beyond far lack of money. The German navy has serious problems with all his main components: submarines, the surface ships and what remained from his naval aircraft.

the Marines have six 212 U submarines, any of which it isn't serviceable now. While the German industry continues to sell such submarines worldwide, and some of her allies on NATO exploit them on very sensitive missions of SIGINT in the remote foreign harbors, the German fleet with his long story of development and operation of submarines can't even develop one submarine on operations today - and can't do it for some time.

B of one of the first missions the new U36 submarine worked in Norway when she has injured the fodder fins, having touched the rock during immersion, and she needed to be accompanied back to Germany with the vessel controlling his program of tests. While there are such failures, it has simply added to an indisposition of the German fleet which was when - tolite a pioneer in underwater operations and design. Worse than that, U31, the first submarine of a class, has failed in 2014, and still repairs aren't completed.
