Germany’s military is so underfunded its troops used broomsticks painted black as mock weapons during a Nato defence exercise.
But the highly embarrassing episode, revealed in a leaked report, is just the beginning of the country’s woes as it fights to reverse chronic army shortages.
The article goes on to state the following:
It comes as Donald Trump has vowed to make Chancellor Angela Merkel increase her defence spending to reach the minimum spending obligations all Nato members must adhere to.
General Harald Kujat, a former chief of staff of the German armed forces, later described it as a “huge embarrassment”.
The unit was supposed to be ready to deploy whenever a Nato member was threatened, he warned.
