** In ''Caludron'', a novel by ''Red Storm Rising'' co-author Creator/LarryBond, the Bundeswehr post-reunification are one of two antagonists in a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture setting where they along with French army form the military arm of [[TheEmpire EurCom]]. They're shown to be [[AntiVillain largely sympathetic]] and an effective, professional military, contrasting heavily with the [[VillainBall staggeringly incompetent]] [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys French]]. Viewpoint character Wilhelm Von Seelow is from the former East Germany and served in the NVA, which gets him a lot of scorn from his West German contemporaries, who aren't particularly fond of former East Germans in the new military.

For some reason they still have an honest to god ''Sail ship'' in their arsenal (the Gorch Fock) which serves training purposes nobody is exactly sure about. This got widespread attention during one of the more abstruse scandals involving - naturally - the resignation of the Defense Minister (over something else, but this was a contributing factor)

** In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert 1]]'', the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces was a general of the alternative WWII Wehrmacht, since in the ''Red Alert'' [[TheVerse Verse]], the Soviets, and not the Germans, were the bad guys.

Bundeswehr basic training is focussed on living and fighting as a ''kleine Kampfgemeinschaft'' (small fighting community), usually squad sized, with the intention of forming strong bonds among the troops. Recruit squads are put under the care of a low-ranking [=NCO=] or officer candidate, taking the role of a reasonable older brother put in charge of his unruly siblings. The part of the stern parents is usually taken by the platoon leaders and the senior company NCO.

After securing the Baltic and North Sea isn't a top priority anymore, its mission has shifted to peacekeeping, with a touch of littoral warfare. There is no such thing as naval infantry; for the same reason as the Luftwaffe has no strategic bombers.

The Bundeswehr is not especially popular with the German public. While other Forces around the globe might be the pride of their countries, the armed forces of Germany are rather seen as a necessary evil by most and as an unnecessary evil by quite a few.

few. In Germany and its Medias, they (excluding fallen or traumatized soldiers) are usually portrayed as the ButtMonkey and usually portrayed as stupid and badly equipped. The Bundeswehr complains regulary about "the lack of support at home" for the soldiers in Afgahnistan and other places. This basicly means, that people, as mentioned above, pretty much disrespect the Bundeswehr.
