The Bundeswehr transferred one of the air defense units under the command of the neighboring Netherlands. This is the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Germany. The head of department, Ursula von der Lyayen, clarifies the situation as follows:
We handed over an air defense unit to 450 military personnel under the Dutch command. This is another step to strengthen the collective defense of our states in the structures of NATO. We highly appreciate the cooperation with the Netherlands in this vein, which began in 1995 the creation of supranational military institutions. We share common values ​​and interests, believe in our European future and are strong partners in the transatlantic alliance.



Germany transferred an air defense unit under the command of the Netherlands. What for?


The German Brigadier General Michael Gschossmann, the country's air defense commander, said that this step was politically significant and would allow to solve the problems of joint operation of air defense systems, including American "Patriots".

The integration process of the German and Dutch units has been going on for several years. Thus, the countries have already united several divisions of the land forces and navy under a single command. It is also stated that a unified concept of a missile defense system of Germany and the Netherlands has been developed. About 2, thousands of Dutch paratroopers in 2014 were under the command of German officers.

It is known that the German air defense unit, although it will be under the Dutch command, will remain territorially in the FRG - in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein.

    Creation of the Joint European Forces. From words to deed, while in experimental mode.

      We went through this already in 1945. The Germans, on the contrary, need to be quiet, to see the memory is short ..

        After such a "successful" investigation by the Netherlands, the crash of the Boeing in Donetsk, more experienced in air defense, cannot be found in the EU! yes

          Some strange metusnya ... Wouldn't it be more reasonable to simply integrate control systems and radar and coordinate all the procedures?

    In general, it is clear, but why is the German unit under the Dutch command, and not vice versa? The Germans definitely have an army more prepared than those who love tulips and red lanterns ...

      Is this with a gynecologist at the head of an army cooler? For me it’s so stupid that it’s utterly subordinate units of its armed forces to strangers. Weeds are inevitable, at least 100500 times unify. However, the drum on their neck, began to worry about something directly for them wassat .

        That's it, that would exchange "kosyachki", that’s the whole point ...
        At this time, the Minister of Health of the Federal Republic of Germany seriously took care of allowing prescription smoking of marijuana. Comrades from the Ministry of Internal Affairs support him.

      The Germans are deprived of control levers, the first call is a base in Turkey, the owner of air defense overseas, so everything is logical, even based on Trump's last run over to Germany. If the Germans had the opportunity, they would have bought the S-400. But their capabilities do not coincide with desires.
      The news is not new a year ago, but by this

    The Germans with whom they just do not create joint units, but the transfer of units under the command of another country ........... They would develop common standards and sculpt the Euro army, and so the final goal is not very clear.

We share common values ​​and interests, believe in our European future and are strong partners in the transatlantic alliance, said Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the department. Well, somehow you brothers are not modestly about yourself. It’s the same as the great and ancient Ukrainians shout to themselves “glory to the heroes”. It is necessary when others give you such an assessment. Something is not very believed in the "love" between the military Germans under the command of the Netherlands No. Although, it is not clear what you mean by the word - partners ... But, actually, a demon with you, do what you want ... yes

    will be under Dutch command, will remain territorially in Germany - in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein

    Direct road to the utter mess. If the Germans could somehow manage to establish cooperation with the Dutch under command, then on the contrary, it is unlikely.

      They have long been not the most militant nation. Then, what to expect from the country of the totally occupied USA. The largest number of US bases in the world is in Germany.

    I am wildly sorry, but you can’t transfer NATO troops under the control of the Russian Federation.

    Yes, everyone understands who will be the main godfather in the Euroreich. And this is not the Netherlands. The Germans transfer the command of their units to other countries in order to accustom everyone to the idea that this is normal. Well, and then it somehow turns out that the most competent, professional officers command, and quite by accident, almost all of them will be Germans.

    We would have been given a bar of German patrols. Of these, the construction battalions are excellent, let the autobahns be built for us, under our wise leadership. Although not - and the manual for the construction of roads is also German Dafayte!

    Wonderful. Alien soldiers defending their closets are not a pity. The Germans are not sorry for the Dutch; the Dutch are not sorry for the Germans. Therefore, strangers will be the shield behind which the cowardly members of NATO will hide. The next step is to recruit troops according to general plans. And the creation of extraterritorial units with a mixed national composition. I wonder in which language the commands will be given? According to the schedule - on Mondays - in German, on Tuesdays - in French, .....
    But NATO’s camp is more than days of the week. Here it is necessary to think, either to discriminate against the Baltic states and different Turks, or to start remaking the calendar so as not to offend colleagues. .
