However, both documents did develop the idea that traditional territorial defence capabilities must remain at such a level that they could be rapidly expanded if necessary.

Therefore, also nowadays, there is an ongoing debate about the future of the Bundeswehr. 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.

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. The commission proposed to reduce the length of compulsory military service to 10 months. Whether Germany is able to meet all of these commitments and plans is something that is presently discussed in the country. Further, it was necessary to comply with the limits set out in the CFE Treaty.


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. The weakness of the Bundeswehr at the time was in its ability to fulfil the most likely tasks, i.

Paradoxically, at the time these objectives steaming from the NATO security threat assessment and NATO defence planning were achieved inthreat perception changed and more emphasis was put on territorial and collective defence.

Reform of the Bundeswehr started in wehrbeauttragter early s, in connection with the reunification of the country and the adjustment of its military to the limits set out in the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe CFE Treaty.

Last but not least, the transformation involved a very substantial reduction and modification in the structure of existing garrisons. 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.

The commission was given the complex and ambitious task of setting out proposals for the Bundeswehr reform. In addition, given that Germany has the fourth largest armed forces in the EU and the sixth largest in NATO, the readiness for action of these international institutions naturally relies to a significant extent on the quality of the German military.
