Branches

Every branch combines units according to their capabilities and their equipment.

The Army’s diversity

The diversity of the German Army is reflected in its different branches. The women and men in uniform of the individual branches each have their own distinct set of skills and capabilities, yet they are at their strongest and most successful only when they work together. Specialised equipment is used to overcome a wide variety of challenges. Sometimes, unusual technology takes centre stage; at other times, it is the vehicles or maybe the weapons. The equipment is characteristic for how each branch accomplishes its mission.
