German military short on tanks for NATO mission

Friday 17:17 GMT

The German military is under-equipped to take on its upcoming role as leader of NATO's anti-Russian defense force, a leaked document shows.

The German military has secretly admitted that it can't fulfill its promises to NATO, according to documents leaked to Die Welt newspaper on Thursday. The Bundeswehr is due to take over leadership of NATO's multinational Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) at the start of next year, but doesn't have enough tanks, the Defense Ministry document said.
