Combat engineers work to ensure that a weapon’s performance is maximised.

    It is the job of these engineers to understand the limits of each weapon’s technology and design.

    That can lead to issues when it comes to high-tech parts and their accuracy.

    That is why the cost of some parts and components has risen dramatically over the years.

    In 2017, Germany spent an estimated €7.6bn on combat engineering parts.

    The cost of a combat engine has increased by about 40% since the early 1980s, according to an article by the Federal Statistics Office (Bundesstatistik) in 2015.

    German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen said in January that the cost had risen by up to 80% since 2006.

    The German Defence Ministry has said it would invest €2bn over five years to replace ageing combat engines, and it will spend up to €1bn on the upgrade of its fighter jets.

    The upgrade programme was announced in 2016 by then-Defense Minister Ursuline Mitterlehner.

    The fighter jets are the most expensive in the world, but Mitterlimer said it was necessary to get them into the fight against the Islamic State group.

    More than 300,000 German combat engines were scrapped in the 1990s, with most of them made for the US military.

    This year, the German Government plans to replace 1.8 million of its combat engines.
