Die WeltFebruary 15,[online]. Trends in German Defense Policy: With respect to France, Germany has committed itself to coordinate the procurement of the new generation of main weapons systems such as tanks, armoured personnel carriers, artillery, and supersonic aircraft. A reform of German military capability, based on a reduction in the number of heavy weapons, was therefore unavoidable.

First of all, the contemporary Bundeswehr suffers from the low operational readiness of key weapons systems. The German air force has long been involved in securing the Baltic airspace, as part of the Air Policing operation.

It has, however, became more intense due to the American pressure. This whole shift is linked with the yearwhich means it is put into the context of the crisis in Ukraine.

In terms of the development of its capacity, during the s, the Bundeswehr underwent fundamental reductions in headcount and in the amount of its combat equipment. In this context, it must be noted that decreasing the European dependence on the USA in defence is impossible without a substantially greater contribution from Germany.

Verteidigungsministerium will das Heer umstrukturieren. The political debate in Germany on increasing defence expenditure has not started because the subject was broached wehrgeauftragter Donald Trump. Inthe tasks of the armed forces were broadened by the addition of international deployment and resolution of international crises in an international framework UN, NATO, OSCE, and WEUthrough the performance of crisis management military operations.


The actual developments diverged to some extent from the Scharping’s conception. During the last round of the German military transformationthe Bundeswehr was reduced further, fromsoldiers to ,; compulsory military service was abolished; and the Ministry of Defence would be restructured and reduced.

This was the framework within which the reform was completed in The ability of Germany to advance its interests in international politics will be affected by the jahresberlcht of such a reform. The present situation can be characterised as the Bundeswehr being optimised for conducting several types of out-of-area military operations and these existing capacities would be used in case of collective defence.

Federal Ministry of Defence, DeutscheWelle, 9th March[online]. Both types of operations therefore require basically the same military capabilities. Involvement in out-of-area military operations was still understood to be supplementary rather than equivalent to the traditional role of the Bundeswehr.


All German post-cold war military transformations only responded to stimuli coming from the outside. Some experts have pointed out that – given the present state of the Bundeswehr – it is not very likely. From this point of view, the political guidelines of the Bundeswehr reform have been adhered to. However, by no means all of the phases of the transformation can be called an unqualified success. Bundesministerium der Verteidigung,p. Last but not least, the transformation involved a very substantial reduction and modification in the structure of existing garrisons.


According to the White Paper, having completed tasks arising from the reunification of Germany, the armed forces would be gradually reoriented towards new tasks.

On the other hand, this increase in military expenditure is unsatisfactory when measured against the enormous pent-up needs for modernisation after 25 years of underinvestment and the 2 percent political obligation. For that reason, it was the conception elaborated by Harald Kujat himself later also the inspector-general of the Bundeswehr in periodDie Bundeswehr sicher ins The commission was given the complex and ambitious task of setting out proposals for the Bundeswehr reform.

Stiftung Wissenschaftund Politik Comments 35, September A White Paper noted unequivocally that there was no longer a risk of sudden attack in Central Europe, to which the armed forces would have to respond at short notice. That was only possible by shrinking the armed forces smaller headcount, less technical equipment and fewer bases by removing capacities that were deemed less important after the end of the Cold War and by limiting investment into equipment and military infrastructure.

In terms of defining the main missions for the Bundeswehr, a fundamental shift in direction occurred after Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft,pp.
