Were the Germans allowed to have Sparrow missiles during the Cold War? From what I remember, their Phantoms were upgraded later on to be able to fire the Sparrow missiles, but did the Luftwaffe actually have any Sparrows of their own, or did they just plan borrow from the Americans? A look at Wikipedia at Sparrow users excluded Germany.
