    German Whitepaper on Defence

    German Armed Forces - Whitepaper

    https://www.bmvg.de/resource/resourc...te%20Paper.pdf

    In future, the Bundeswehr will rely even more on multi-talented, specialised and highly qualified personnel.
    In the long term, we must tap additional potential because technological progress and digitalisation will
    require expertise that the Bundeswehr does not have, at least to the necessary extent. Extensive autonomy
    will no longer be the guiding principle in personnel policy. Instead, permeability between the Bundeswehr
    and industry will have to be increased. Exchange schemes between industry and the Bundeswehr which
    facilitate cooperation with external personnel for a specific period of time are one way of meeting this
    challenge

    Analysis of the German Whitepaper

    http://warontherocks.com/2016/09/ger...tik-once-more/
    Umm interesting, notwithstanding European inaction/leaderless regarding the Yugoslav 'breakup' in the 1990s for example, is this what the world needs now, another large/powerful country reasserting itself on the world stage? By acting unilaterally and 'leading actions' - especially if it now going to do so for its 'interests' (which tend to expand for larger nations).

    I'm going to venture that some of its apparent political leadership in some European affairs have not always proved popular with other EU countries... e.g. previous EU 'expansion fatigue' - and never mind the more recent and divisive 'Migration Crises' and also for example, what are/were the German relationship with Ukraine like, and implications for similar situations if they had led proactively and unilaterally in actions/for their interests then?

    This report highlights that the Curragh cannot really expand outside the current general camp area (it is a bit dated but still relevant):

    http://www.defence.ie/WebSite.nsf/72804bb4760386f380256c610055a16b/8ed894f4d276c311802570d70043f6b3/$FILE/CTF%20-%20Exec%20Summary.htm

    Having said that there are a good few buildings that should be knocked and the sites built on (if it is legally allowed).

    One thing is for sure there is nowhere near enough accommodation (ie beds) for a brigade (never mind an battalion). Or offices, stores, training accommodation etc.
