believe it or not

germany is no 3 for trading weapons world wide. with a 10% of the market just behind the us with 30% and russia with 25%. not china or anybody else.
as always assumed, trading weapons is highly resistant to a crisis, war will never die [the exports rises for 70% for the last 5 years].
greatest hits are the leopard 2 tank and submarines [only small ones for the german sea].

Well, the arms sales history of Germany is a long one. Remember those Krupps?
