Germany plans to buy 50 Puma army vehicles worth 1.5 billion euros

The German government plans to buy 50 Puma fighting vehicles worth a total of 1.5 billion euros ($1.65 billion) for its armed forces, a defence source told Reuters on Friday.

Berlin ramped up defence spending after Russia's invasion of Ukraine last year, sending weapons to Kyiv and replenishing its own military stocks.

The Puma, built by KMW and Rheinmetall, is meant to replace Germany's old Marder infantry fighting vehicles.
