The reorientation of the Bundeswehr calls for a restructuring of personnel to create mission-oriented all-volunteer armed forces and, at the same time, to achieve a reduction in strength. The Personnel Structure Model 185 implements the reorientation objectives for the body of military personnel.
With the implementation plans, an important step has been taken towards putting the Stationing Concept of the Bundeswehr into practice. The Federal Ministry of Defence adopted the new target structure already in April 2012. The timelines for the restructuring of the services and major organisational elements can be seen below.
