The manufacturer of German Taurus missiles assures that it will be able to quickly replenish reserves in the event of the transfer of the Taurus KEPD 350 long-range cruise missile 

<p >The German company Taurus Systems has denied the statement of Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) defense expert Johannes Arlt that the German defense industry is not able to quickly fill missile reserves if they are supplied to Ukraine, DW writes. </p>
<p>Taurus Systems CEO Joachim Knopf emphasized in his post on Platform X that quickly replenishing missile inventories is not a problem.</p>
<p>“In the event of an appropriate order, the manufacturer is ready to both launch production of new Taurus missiles and modify existing ones in the shortest possible time,” he wrote.</p>
<p>Back in November, the manufacturing company MBDA, which owns Taurus Systems, stated that is capable of not only increasing the production of Taurus missiles in the shortest possible time, but also integrating new technical advances into them.</p>
<p>In the parliamentary factions of the Greens and Free Democrats there are voices that, like the bloc of Christian parties CDU/CSU, support the transfer of Taurus missiles to Kiev. But at a vote in the Bundestag on January 17, the corresponding initiative was rejected. Of the 666 deputies present at the meeting, 485 voted “against”. However, the plan to submit a joint bill on Taurus missiles from all factions to the Bundestag remains in force. Most likely, voting for the document will take place before February 22, 2024.</p>
<p>The Taurus cruise missile is one of the most modern missiles of the Bundeswehr air force. They are capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 500 km even from great heights and distances and, in particular, destroying bunkers.</p>
