The Army Command (German language: Kommando Heer, KdoHeer) is the high command of the German Army of the Bundeswehr. The command also is the staff of the Inspector of the Army, the Army's highest commander, who is considered its chief. It was formed in 2012, as a merger of the Army Office (Heeresamt), General Staff (Führungsstab des Heeres), and Army Forces Command (Heeresführungskommando), as part of a larger reorganization of the Bundeswehr. It is based at the Struzberg-Kaserne in Strausberg, Brandenburg.[1]
