The German armed forces, or Bundeswehr, will be getting a new fourth branch

As part of the restructuring, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius announced that the Bundeswehr will have a new fourth branch dedicated to cyber and information operations, along with a new operational command.

As a part of reorganizing, the German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius revealed that the Bundeswehr will have a new fourth branch focused on cyber and information operations, along with a new operational command.

“In the future, the Bundeswehr will have one operational command, four branches of the armed forces and a support command,” Pistorius said during a press conference.

The creation of a unified operational command is necessary to control the armed forces from one central location.

The traditional three branches of the military – ground forces, naval forces, and air force – will be joined by a new branch focused on cyber and information activities to deal with modern threats like disinformation and cyber attacks, according to Pistorius.


Overall, the restructuring of the Bundeswehr's organization aims to ensure the readiness of the German armed forces for emergencies, including wartime situations, as stated by the minister.
