One thing Germany has is a tank building/repair industry, so if the will and money align, they can quickly bring the majority of their fleet up to operational in short order. Everyone but the US and South Korea are in line for a limited supply of parts and repair facilities.I think basing numbers on German readiness is probably a flawed premise. Firstly we have no idea what the standard of “ready” is for a German tank, and secondly we don’t know what effect their budget has really had in part and maintenance.
I like the idea of Reservist crews; I’m a big fan of the British system of having regiments of “crew replacements” who can train on existing systems.
