Here it must be stressed that all previous Bundeswehr reforms sought to increase expeditionary operations capacities while saving money. Bundesministerium der Verteidigung, 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.

This was the framework within which the reform was completed in By and large, the Bundeswehr is in an unsatisfactory state as far as the needs of the German security policy are concerned, even though the targets of the past reforms were largely met.

These include the successors to the Eurofighter and Rafael combat airplanes, the successor to the Wehrbesuftragter 2 and Leclerc main battle tanks and new artillery systems. This means that the reforms of the wehrbeauftrgter forces in Germany came too late, were implemented too slowly and without sufficient rigour.

Despite partial changes, the structure of the Bundeswehr followed that laid down during the Cold War; of course, funding was very significantly curtailed, and the development was no longer sustainable. According to Tom Dyson, this was the main reason that a transition to a voluntary method of recruitment was rejected. The turning point came in and the aim of the reforms was to build up the armed forces to make them suitable for various types of crisis management military operations, outside Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.

The discussion about the two-per-cent share – however attractive to the media – is nonsensical from an expert perspective. As regards technology, it is necessary to modernize the Bundeswehr substantially and equip it especially with artillery, which had been reduced since the end of Cold War from nearly 40 to 3 battalions. Trends in German Defense Policy: In this respect, the statement that all tasks of the Bundeswehr are of equal importance [46] is crucial, as underlined by Hans-Peter Bartels, the parliamentary commissioner for the armed forces, in his most recent report.

Thus, if such a political decision to increase the defence expenditure to two per cent of the GDP were made, this system would first have to be fundamentally transformed.

What matters is whether Germany has the necessary capacity at its disposal. The Bundeswehr was insufficiently prepared for the tasks that it wehebeauftragter most probably have to undertake as part of expeditionary missions policing, training of local law enforcement bodies, fighting against insurgents, disarming unlawful combatants, fighting against drug traffickers and other criminals, and constructing or reconstructing infrastructure.


On the other hand, the expenditures on the German armed forces were successfully reduced and the main goal consuming peace dividends was wehrbeaufrragter.

Therefore, the German Ministry of Defence assumes that by the number of soldiers on fixed-term contracts Zeitsoldaten and professional soldiers will increase by 12, to abouttroops. It has, however, became more intense due to the American pressure. Only about 25, of these would be conscripts. The ensuing political debate was ended by the July ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court, which opened the door for German participation in out-of-area military operations, wehrbeaufgragter long as these were actions undertaken within the system of mutual collective defence.

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.

Wahlperiode, February 20, 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.
