Berlin (Reuters) -Wednesday’s Bundestag budget committee approved the purchase of five Boeing P-8A maritime patrol aircraft for € 1.4 billion, parliamentary sources said.

The plane is designed for submarine hunting and long-range maritime reconnaissance. These will replace the aging German Lockheed P-3C Orion aircraft.
