* '''MiG-29''' Inherited from the NVA, 24 of those were in service between 1990 and 2004, starring in dissimilar air combat training, scaring western air-to-air missile developers and shaming the Phantom crews. They have been sold to Poland (for one Euro per plane) in 2004.

The Luftwaffe is purely tactical air force, with fighters and fighter-bombers, but no strategic bombing capabilities. In other words, it's all [[TheBlitz Blitz]], but no Thunder, because no one thought it would be a good idea to give Germany too many offensive abilities. In case of World War 3, however, it would have access to UsefulNotes/PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower via nuclear sharing.

* '''Luchs''' Reconnaissance armoured fighting vehicle. It was the predecessor of the Fennek and the former pride of the armoured recon troops. Based on the Sd.Kfz 231 and 234 of something called the Wehrmacht. Being eerily quite when running, it is one of the few AFV in the world that can sneak up on you. it was phased out because it offered no resistance against mines and roadside IEDs.

** 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.
