* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler...did ''not'' serve in ''this'' military (well, the [[UsefulNotes/TheSoundOfMartialMusic Austrian-Hungarian one]]). It was rumored that he failed the physical for it because he didn't want to serve in an ethnically-mixed army. [[ImperialGermany We all know]] [[WorldWarI the rest]], [[ChirpingCrickets don't we?]]

Women on the other hand are not required to serve, but they may volunteer and, since 1998, are permitted to become professional soldiers. [[DoubleStandard In fact, it seems like every European country that conscripts its male citizens doesn't do the same with its female ones.]] Austria held a referendum on abolishing conscription and chose to hold on to the system. Note that conscription in modern Europe is basically a leftover from the the days of the ColdWar, with only Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Greece and Estonia preserving it as of 2012. [[AndZoidberg And Belarus]].

What about from 1938 to 1955? Oh, Austria had the ''Anschluss'', so it had the ''[[UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Wehrmacht]]'' [[SarcasmMode to protect it]]. In 1945, the Allied countries occupied it after World War II. However, they did say in the Declaration of Moscow in 1943 that Austria would be considered the first victim of Nazi aggression, [[ThrowTheDogABone meaning that it would be considered liberated and independent after the war]], rather than an aggressor nation. The occupation ended in 1955 because Austria's Parliament passed a Declaration of Neutrality saying that it would be permanently neutral.

A lot of ex-Austrian soldiers wound up becoming famous (and in some cases, infamous) as German soldiers during World War 2. In 1945, the Allied countries occupied it after World War II. However, they did say in the Declaration of Moscow in 1943 that Austria would be considered the first victim of Nazi aggression, [[ThrowTheDogABone meaning that it would be considered liberated and independent after the war]], rather than an aggressor nation.

It was notorious for having [[SwedesWithCoolPlanes Swedish SAAB Draken]] in service from roughly 1987 to 2005 -- "notorious" because it was old. The Austrian State Treaty of 1955 said the Air Force couldn't have any air-to-air missiles but dropped that restriction in 1993 because of the Yugoslavian Wars violating their airspace. In 2005, the country got itself some nice modern Eurofighters. (It has been a joke that they couldn't start, turn around, and land again without violating foreign airspace, but it's not actually true.)

It was notorious for having the [[SwedesWithCoolPlanes Swedish SAAB Draken]] jet fighter in service from roughly 1987 to 2005 -- "notorious" because it was old. The Austrian State Treaty of 1955 said the Air Force couldn't have any air-to-air missiles (which gave the Austrian version of the Draken the dubious distinction of being the last fighter aircraft with an all-gun air-to-air armament), but dropped that restriction in 1993 because of the Yugoslavian Wars violating their airspace. In 2005, the country got itself some nice modern Eurofighters.
