    Great pics again, thank you.

    I see so many different versions of the G36 nowadays and wonder, which branch uses which version?? I see G36K, regular size, KA1 or whatever it is called, with EOtech, Zeiss Z-Point, the standard scope, 4 x scopes etc.
    Same goes for LLM, different bipods and other stuff. I saw a video where an infantry soldier showed the camera team "his" weapons, and he had two different G36s as his personal weapon.

    Can someone clear things up for me?

    If you mean a maximal size of the Bundeswehr, yes.

    If I remember correctly the "Two Plus Four Agreement" (for the German reunification) grants a maximal strength of 500,000 men. Any weapons of mass destruction are forbidden. I'm not sure about the paragraph about other nuclear assets like Nuclear powered ships. Taking part in a War of Aggression (Angriffskrieg) is also forbidden by this treaty (in addition to the ban in our constituion)

    But beside that, we are free to have tanks, airplanes, ships, heavy artillery etc. It's not the Treaty of Versailles anymore

    Yeah, its because of what that Treaty caused that they agreed to not do that again....

    Any advice from any one currently serving? I am thinking of joining the Bundeswehr.

    Germany signed the CFE treaty on conventional arms in europe, so that means we have an upper limit of 20.000 tanks and 6800 aircraft

    That's hard. Maybe we should build some Landkreuzer to compensate it.

    Read closer ... ^^ However, even this limits are far away from what we have now in service

    The treaty further limits the proportion of armaments that can be held by any one country in Europe to about one-third of the total for all countries in Europe - the "sufficiency" rule. These limits are:[4]

    * 13,300 tanks;
    * 13,700 artillery pieces;
    * 20,000 armored combat vehicles (ACVs);
    * 5,150 combat aircraft; and
    * 1,500 attack helicopters.

    All sea-based Naval forces are excluded from CFE Treaty accountability.[6]

    If I remember correctly the "Two Plus Four Agreement" (for the German reunification) grants a maximal strength of 500,000 men.
    no,it says that the number of troops had to be reduced from 500.000 to 370.000 which is also the maximum.

    I'm not sure about the paragraph about other nuclear assets like Nuclear powered ships.
    i'm not sure but i think there is no reglementation about nuclear powerd ships.the otto hahn was build in germany and there were no serious problems

    Some photos I made last summer during a visitors day at the local barracks:


    Camouflaged French and German APC stand next to each other.

    German Pioneer vehicles.

    A 7.62 NATO MG3 is seen enxt to a Bundeswehr soldier, mounted on a tripod.

    A Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled artillery is seen during a firing smulation.

    A G36k with various attachments is seen during a static weapon display.

    A HK 40mm automatic grenade launcher.

    Heckler und Koch G36A1 with AG36 40mm grenade launcher.

    An old Hotchkiss HS30 IFV is shown during a historical presentation.

    Reenactors show euqipment and uniforms used during the early Bundeswehr years.


    Thatīs all for now, I still have some pics on my other computer, some showing more French equipment. Iīll upload them if anyone wants to see them.
