Taurus is ready to produce new missiles as soon as possible if they are delivered to Ukraine
The German company Taurus Systems GmbH has denied the statement of German's Social Democratic Party that the country's defence industry is unable to quickly replenish its missile stocks in case of supplying them to Ukraine
The head of Taurus Systems, Joachim Knopf, wrote about this on the social media X.
"In the event of a corresponding order, the manufacturer is ready to start production of new Taurus missiles and modify existing ones in a short time," he wrote.
The head of the company made this statement in response to the statement by Johannes Arlt, a defence expert of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), that the German defence industry is not able to quickly restore missile stocks if they are supplied to Ukraine.
- The decision to provide Ukraine with long-range Taurus cruise missiles, which was not supported by the German parliament on January 17, was rejected due to a violation of the procedure.
