Locations of the Dutch armed forces in Germany in 1990
The list of Dutch military locations in Germany lists all military facilities of Dutch associations in Germany . All locations are now closed. In order to preserve the originality, the place names - as far as it seemed reasonable - follow the designations used by the Dutch armed forces (i.e. later municipal reforms are not taken into account).
The Netherlands also stationed troops in Germany late and as the last of the NATO partners . As part of the integrated forward defense, the I (NL) Corps (Apeldoorn) had taken over the northernmost combat strip in the NORTHAG network along the Elbe, but left the combat troops in the Netherlands (HQ 4th Division in Harderwijk, HQ 42. PzInfBrigade in Assen, HQ 43 PzInfBrigade in Havelte). In order to reduce the problem of the long deployment routes, the first plans to move a brigade to northern Germany were made in 1958. The barracks in Seedorf did not move into until 1963. In return, the Federal Republic of Germany also stationed an association in the neighboring country, the Air Force Training Regiment 2, in the Nassau-Dietz barracks in Budel .
The RNAF Air Force took over two sections each in the Nike and Hawk belts. Since the Nike anti-aircraft missiles could be equipped with nuclear warheads, US custodial teams were in place with the Dutch associations in Germany to ensure the principle of the two keys. The nuclear weapons of the I (NL) Corps were only stationed in the Netherlands.
The Dutch armed forces had no real high command in Germany; the brigade commander in Seedorf took over the function in terms of protocol. The Netherlands Armed Forces Support Agency Germany (NASAG) was in Seedorf for administrative matters. From 1958 the Luchtmacht Headquarters (RNAF) was located in Blomberg to manage the FlaRak units .
