    it's been actively replaced by the Puma for years, they're just finally getting enough that they can phase the Marder out. The US is years from a Bradley replacement, OMFV program hasn't even picked a winner

      you mean IFV that is made too short for average German male, has successful 100% breakdown rate and while main demand from army is that it can be operated by pregnant woman? That IFV?

                this is equally retarded as the articles claiming the US wouldn't buy any more CROWS mounts for the Abrams back in 2016 when in reality they issued a stop-work for a redesign, then bought more CROWS-LP

            Politicians don't know what they're doing most of the time. The full report showed that the vast majority of problems were due to shitty maintaince by the Bundeswehr and shitty performance by the crews. The decision of putting procurement on hold days after the headlines is just pure actionism. It doesn't mean shit

        Another PrepHole degenerate who doesn't know the first thing how putting a new weapon system into service works. At this point i'm convinced they couldn't differntiate between a MBT and a Twingo in camo paint.

            See? I could care less about vatnik stuff the problem they have is they can't even built 20 tanks so testing out the mistakes takes ages. Same with Puma - normally a weapon system like this would put out 200 for testing not 20 like the Bundeswehr have available. So the industry standart will take 10 time longer to achieve. I know PrepHole degenerates will neither care nor grasp a simple fact like this.

              Proper design eliminates many problems before they begin. AFV are far less complex than noobs imagine so there is for example zero excuse for mechanical problems (drivetrain, engine etc) and little for others.

              The public are now groomed to accept decades of beta testing. Germany quit being serious about weapons when the Wall came down and Rheinmetall didn't care to build anything on its own. They could have fielded twenty out of pocket. Ask any Krautanons how utterly neglected the German armed forces are today vs. the motivated, FUNDED, TRAINED West German forces extant when I was in EUSAFE in the early 1980s.

              National pride makes children defend idiocy and while we laugh at pajeets and bugs Westerners are at least as silly.

        Only 2 had real issues, the rest was hit about a single screw being loose and making a container rattle or a heater not turning on because somebody forgot to hit the on button.
        17 of the 18 in question are fully operational again. German standards for that kinda stuff are high and you fell for fake news.

        I love how a requirement on emissions, chemicals etc that was exemplified with "having impact on fertility and the development of early-stage fetuses in pregnant females" became "vehicle must be operable by 9 month preggo wymin of the newly established 3rd Trimester Assault Battallion"

    Puma is fine. Bundeswehr treated them like cheap whores, had several mostly minor problems as a result, everything was totally overblown by the ministry cunt who blamed the industry without even waiting for a proper assessment. It's the G36 all over again.

      No the problem is that literally no one who talks about the Puma is grasping the simple fact that it's still in its testing phase and before industry standart is achieved this thing will go back and forth a few more times, because the number of vehicles available is too small. Completely standart procedure.

        Yeah no. The lastest version was considered ready for action. And it probably would be, if maintenance and training were decent.
        Then again, it doesn't like that's going to be the case with this government. The german army is shit and basically useless, either way.

          The first Pumas were put into service in 2015 completely overhauled from the 2010 version and they have nothing in common with the latest version of 2020. They were completely redeveloped and are still in testing mode yes. At least learn the basics.
