"Germany's air defense system is weak in the face of a Turkish-made unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)," reads the article published in the well-known German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Eurasia Diary reports citing Report News Agency. 

According to the newspaper, the device shocked the German army.

The article says the German Defense Ministry acknowledged that the country's air defense system was weak in preventing unmanned aerial vehicles. Defense Minister Annegret Kramp Karrenbauer has put forward some proposals to address the problem.

"There is an urgent need to change the air defense system due to the threat of UAV attacks. The armed forces are not in a position to resist this situation. It was a surprise that the German army was defenseless against the UAV attack," the article reads.

The article says that Israeli and Turkish anti-aircraft missiles destroyed more than 190 tanks and armored vehicles of the Armenian Armed Forces in Karabakh and surrounding areas: "Armenian servicemen were disappointed because they were defenseless against these attacks. Such news shocked the German army."

According to the article, the US Patriot air defense system in Germany needs to be modernized in this regard: More than 13 billion euros are required to update Germany's air defense system.
