EU Says Limited Weapons Production Capacity Due to Outsourcing to Non-EU Countries

The European Union has the capacity to produce enough weapons for its member states, but production is limited due to the fact that much of the EU’s military industry is outsourced to non-EU countries, according to European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton. Breton made the announcement during a plenary session of the European Parliament on Monday.

European officials have expressed concerns that their countries’ weapons stocks are limited and may be depleted amid intensified arms supplies to Ukraine. In response, some have called for increased production of ammunition and other military equipment in Europe, as well as greater combat capabilities for their armed forces.
