Despite being funded by one of the largest economies in the world, the Bundeswehr is reluctant to grow to its full potential. Perhaps this is due to its stable surroundings... Or more controversially, it could be to avoid bringing back certain memories. Regardless the Bundeswehr is still one of the most powerful militaries in the world.
Population: 83.02 million

The German Army undeniably has some of the best armoured vehicles ever made. The Leopard 2A7, which is arguably one of the best tanks in the world is the only MBT in the German Army. With Puma IFVs and Boxer APCs to accompany the Leopards, there is no doubt that the German Army's selection of vehicles is both modern and highly advanced.
Germany has the second most Eurofighters after Britain. Along with the Eurofighters there are ageing Panavia Tornados, 68 of which are interdictor/strike variants and 21 electronic combat/recon variants. Because Germany lacks a policy of its own, it merely tags along in NATO missions. The last time the German Air Force was put to work was during bombing operations against ISIS using Panavia Tornados.
Armed UAVs: 0
Attack Helicopters: 56
The German Navy may often be overlooked. However it should not be underestimated. The Baden-Wurttemberg class frigates are the heaviest in the world. They are specifically designed for sea-to-land attacks. Other notable vessels include the Type 212 submarines and Braunschweig corvettes. Together these form a formidable albeit somewhat small navy.
