The army scrapped half of their ammunition unused

According to the armament program in 2019 plans to the defense Department the purchase of new ammo – the value of 147 million Swiss francs. What was connected with this purchase, is unlikely to have a security of politicians in the debate in the national Assembly aware of, writes the "Switzerland on the weekend". In return, the army was rotten in the next 15 years, half of your ammo stock to waste. The reason is that The ammunition is obsolete.

In Numbers this meant that ammunition should be disposed of in the value of up to 1.7 billion Swiss francs unused. The Green national councillor Balthasar Glättli says to the newspaper: "The effective extent of the disposal is greater than I feared." And the Schwyzer SVP councillor Alex Kuprecht wanted to address in the next session of the security Commission. (roy)
