Note: Most deliveries to Israel listed here are widely confirmed; additional Israeli requests have been approved since the end of 1991; probably additional deliveries not listed have been taking place. All deliveries to Israel are loans. Information on France is somewhat uncertain since parliament was informed only during preparations for delivery. UK information seems to be solid  although more may have been supplied; US information is probably reliable.

Sources: Deutscher Bundestag, 2 December 1991; Deutscher  Bundestag, Verteidigungsausschuß, 10 December1991; Kolbow/Stoltenberg, 1992; Gießmann, 1992, pp. 235-237; notes  by journalist colleagues cross-checked by interviews with members of parliament and their researchers. UK and US information is mainly based on two detailed computer printouts (archives of a journalist colleague), German MoD, 6 December 1991; also, United Nations General Assembly, 1992 and 1993.

Note: Officially most of these deliveries have been categorized as being intended "for training purposes." It may be assumed that they have served technical intelligence purposes as well. They represent NVA army equipment otherwise not listed in the technical intelligence context. In addition, some items listed here have been exported in such small amounts that they may have been used for technical intelligence purposes but probably not for training purposes.
