German Engineering Yields New Warship That Isn’t Fit for Sea

New German frigate is a disaster. Like the f-35 or Littoral Combat Ship; it just doesn’t work. “Defense experts cite the warship’s buggy software and ill considered arsenal-as well as a starboard list.”
And this is the only defense SNAFU. “A contract to build a new helicopter hit snags, cost for a new rifle overran and an ambitious drone project never got off the ground.”

THen there is the infrastructure fiascos. The new Berlin airport is 10 years behind schedule as is the Stuttgart railway station.
