As previously reported, at the beginning of 2019, the Bundeswehr must play a decisive role in creating an international high-alert operational group, Spearhead (Speerspitze). The NATO project envisages an increased combat readiness of five thousand troops, who should, if necessary, begin operations at any point during the 48-72 hours.
With regard to mobile location during operations, the army lacks combat capability at least until 2021- quotes the publication of a military command document.
It is noted that 2018-2020 requires 10 282 "equipment units to accommodate" military personnel, while at the disposal of the army there are only 2,5 thousands. The Bundeswehr also suffers from a lack of winter uniforms and body armor.
