The German military plans to bring 100 mothballed tanks back into service as it deals with increased demands from the Ukraine crisis.
Defense Ministry spokesman Jens Flosdorff said Friday that the military will pay 22 million euros ($23.6 million) to buy back the Leopard 2 main battle tanks from the defense industry, which has kept them in storage. The tanks will then be modernized starting in 2017.
