According to Ursula von der Leyen, Germany intends to increase its military spending in by 4 billion Euros to This means that the reforms of the armed forces in Germany came too late, were implemented too slowly and without sufficient rigour.

What was planned was a slow evolution, rather than a revolution. However, this policy is now evidently exhausted and is no longer sustainable – if German collective defence capacities are to be truly restored. Only about 25, of these would be conscripts. Various types of expeditionary operations, including tackling international terrorism, supporting allies, protecting Germany and its citizens and, last but not least, carrying out crisis response, emergency and evacuation operations, were considered in both documents as the missions that the Bundeswehr would be most likely to undertake.

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

Some experts have pointed out that – given the present state of the Bundeswehr – it is not very likely. However, by no means all of the phases of the transformation can be called an unqualified success.

The deficits of the German armed forces were demonstrated in the operation Allied Force in They do in fact determine the structure of the Bundeswehr.

In AprilGermany and France agreed to move forward with the joint development and procurement of a new combat jet and other programmes. Interviews with German experts wehrbeauftfagter that they believe it not to be very likely.

The aim of this paper is to provide a succinct summary of jahresbwricht adaptations of the German military to a changing operational environment since the end of the Cold War; to highlight the main issues currently faced by the German armed forces; and last but not least, to describe the ongoing German military transformation.


Achieving this state would mean the increase by around 15, of nominal size of the land forces. The Bundeswehr was insufficiently prepared for the tasks that it would most probably have to undertake as part of expeditionary missions policing, training of local law enforcement bodies, fighting wehrbaeuftragter insurgents, disarming unlawful wehrbeauftragtet, fighting against drug traffickers and other criminals, and constructing or reconstructing infrastructure.

What matters is whether Germany has the necessary capacity at its disposal. Auf der Suche nach einemneuen Gleichgewicht.

But that was anything but the sole impulse. If Germany really were to spend two per cent of its GDP which, measuring according to the Cold War standards, is not very much on defence and if these means were expended in a rational fashion, Germany would become – thanks to its enormous economic power – mahresbericht military power of the first order within a decade.

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. This kind of international engagement creates a need to reform the German armed forces.


The strengthening of the element in the armed forces tailored to crisis management was made possible by the most efficient use of resources and investment inherited from the Cold War era and cutting territorial defence capacities. Yet, this shift has been somewhat slower than in other militaries in the West.

At the turn of the millennium, the emphasis placed on territorial defence was still greater than in other NATO member countries, and its importance only decreased throughout the s.

Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, 14th July[online]. All German post-cold war military transformations only responded to stimuli coming from the outside.

For that reason, it was the conception elaborated by Harald Kujat himself later also the inspector-general of the 20112 in periodDie Bundeswehr sicher ins So far, Germany has been able to fulfil its foreign-policy obligations, albeit with some issues very restrictive rules of engagement in foreign operations, an emphasis on the priority jahresbericnt non-military instruments, an emphasis on development aid, etc.

The same single set of forces will then have to provide troops for crisis management operations. This was the framework within which the reform was completed in It has, however, became more intense due to the American pressure. Whether Germany is able to meet all of these commitments and plans is something that is presently discussed in the country.


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. Last but not least, an intensive development jahresbericcht capabilities in the area of cyberwarfare is expected. 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.

Indeed, they had no choice, as they were unable to remove the discrepancy. Last but not least, it proposed a modest increase in defence expenditure, although it carefully avoided making strong recommendations in this respect. This number is approximately what was set as the target for the most recent transformation of the Bundeswehr. Gemeinsame Sicherheit und Zukunft der Bundeswehr. 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.

The ability of Germany to advance its interests in international politics will be affected by the results of such a reform.

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.

Germany and the Use of Force.

The acquisition process was long and expensive, very often it did not reflect the needs of troops, while vital equipment arrived at operating units with significant delays. In Mayit issued its final report, Gemeinsame Sicherheit und Zukunft der Bundeswehrwhich promoted a very substantial strengthening of the expeditionary element in the German military structures, wehrbeauftragtre provoked controversy and sometimes undisguised opposition among politicians and military leaders.

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.
