- It’s reported that an ammunition shortage has forced Dutch soldiers to imitate the sound of firing their weapons in shooting drills by shouting ‘Bang! Bang!’.
- According to a Defence Ministry email seen by Dutch broadcaster RTL, the Dutch army has long suffered from a shortage of ammunition, but the situation is dire at present.
- The Dutch Government has reportedly increased its defence budget from €7.6b in 2014 to €8b in 2015, with ammunition stockpiles to be replenished once funding becomes available.
