    Speaking to the Bundeswehrverband, Germany's armed forces association, already a few weeks ago, parliamentary secretary of state for defense Christian Schmidt is reported to have said only 140,000 Bundeswehr posts are financed. As the Bundeswehr has 195,000 military and civilian personnel, this means 55,000 posts are not financed, according to Deutschlandfunk.
