This was interesting in an alarming kind of way regarding the German military . . . .

Von der Leyenís comments followed reports in recent months that none of the nationís submarines were operational and that military pilots were borrowing helicopters from a private automobile club for training because so many of their own were in need of repair. Germanyís Die Welt newspaper reported Thursday that the nationís military only has nine operational Leopard 2 tanks, even though it has pledged to have 44 ready for a NATO rapid-reaction force it is slated to lead early next year. The report cited leaked defense ministry documents.
