A corruption scandal in Austria is jeopardizing the most expensive military investment project in postwar German history. Germany has given the go-ahead to purchase 140 Eurofighter jets in a deal valued at 15 billion euros. But if Austria, which has likewise ordered dozens of the aircraft, is forced to abandon its deal because corruption allegations, it would make the aircraft a lot more expensive for Germany and other countries.
