The Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte (German Air Force) is the air arm of the Reichswehr. Formed on 13 January 2008 , as the Preußische Luftstreitkräfte, it has taken a significant role in Prussian military history ever since, playing a large part in all wars fought by Prussia. It has responisbility for all air warfare and missile units in Prussia. Command is vested in the Chef der Generalstab der Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte (Chief of the Air Force General Staff), who heads the Air Force General Staff in the Defence Ministry.

The first military aircraft to be acquired by Prussia entered service in 2008 were left over from the withdrawal of the former Russian Baltic Fleet. These have been extensively modified to enhance their capabilities into the foreseable future.

The Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte operates 60 front line aircraft, plus transport aircraft, and training aircraft. The Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte is also responsible for NDR's strategic nuclear forces. All aircraft are based in the Reich.

Mission Edit

BW Tätigkeitsabzeichen Militärluftfahrzeugführer

Pilots Qualification Badge

The Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte's mission is to support the objectives of the Reich, which are to "provide the capabilities needed: to ensure the security and defence of the Reich, including against terrorism; to support the Government’s foreign policy objectives particularly in promoting national interests."

The Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte's own mission statement reads as thus: “ ... to provide An agile, adaptable and capable Air Force that, person for person, is second to none, and that makes a decisive air power contribution in support of the Reich Defence Mission. ”

The above statement goes hand in hand with the General Staff's definition of air power, the concept that guides the Luftwaffe's strategy. Air Power is defined as: "The ability to project military force in air by or from a platform operating above the surface of the earth. Air platforms are defined as any aircraft, helicopter or unmanned vehicle."
