June 26, 2012

Germany’s armed forces plan to cut an order for Puma fighting vehicles, reducing the appropriation request by 340 million euros ($425 million), the Financial Times Deutschland reported, citing government documents submitted to parliament’s budget committee.

German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere said last fall he would order 350 of the German-built vehicles instead of the 405 originally planned, the Hamburg-based newspaper said in an e-mailed version of article to be published today.
