Germany is reportedly investing €460 million in a new short-range air defence system. 

Last year military officials from Germany and the US collectively recognised that Europe was experiencing an evident shortage of short-range air defense weapons (SHORAD), including an inability to defend against drones. 

"NATO countries have been aware of the integrated air and missile defence challenge for some time,” said Thomas Karako of the Center for Strategic and International Studies,  "We have to get on it, but we're not there yet."

Confirmation of SHORAD acquisition is not expected to be finalised until 2018, although primary work on the initiative could begin this year if the Ministry decides to add €20 million to its defence budget.
