Germany Defence and Security Report Q1 2013

Germany defence market: New market research published

Our Germany Defence & Security Report for Q113 examines the countrys defence posture, defence procurement initiatives and its defence spending.

Chiefly, the report examines the sometimes painful transition of Germanys armed forces from their Cold War-era role of defending the country against Soviet and Warsaw Pact aggression, into a force capable of meeting the security challenges of the 21st Century.

The report also examines a number of aspects of Germanys defence policy, including the continuingly vexing question facing the country concerning the transformation of its defence posture from its NATO European defence tasks into a force which can intervene in crises abroad. Berlin is keen to move Germanys armed forces in this direction, but faces perennial domestic opposition from some portions of its population regarding the deployment of forces abroad.

In addition, the report examines several of Germanys major defence procurement programmes. The German government is investing considerably across the land and air domains in particular. Capabilities in these two sectors are seen as essential to enable Germany to project power beyond its borders, though the notion remains deeply controversial. The legacy of the Second World War makes a significant element of the German polity highly distrustful of the procurement of any capabilities that enable Germany to intervene in conflicts beyond its borders. Nevertheless, since the end of the Cold War, Berlin has played an increasingly active role in military operations abroad, most notably in Afghanistan.

Over the past quarter, we have added the following discussions to the report: - A detailed description of Germanys recently overhauled defence decision-making process and the orders of battle of its armed forces; - Defence modernisation programmes ongoing in the German Army, Air Force and Navy including changes to orders to battle, and equipment procurement; - Details of recent procurement activity conducted in the Q412 timeframe.

- A discussion of recent developments in Rheinmetall, a major German military equipment manufacturer, and other defence contractors.
