Introduction[edit]

"Between 1918 and 1921, the Austrian semi-regular army was called Volkswehr ("People's Defence"), and fought against Slovenian indigenous inhabitants in Carinthia" This army wasn't even semi-regular. They were local militias in Carinthia. This should not stand here, it has nothing to do with the regular Austrian military. --Kl4Uz 13:15, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

The Austrian Military is regarded as one of the best trained in the world - that´s a very bold statement. I served in the austrian army in the 90's, and our training was poor. The only well trained units compared to other european countries armed forces are the air force, some special units and those units which serve abroad (on UN-missions etc.)

Your individual and personal experience of serving as a conscriptionist are nice and interessenting to read, but does not contribute to an article of an encyclopedia at all. What branch did you serve in? Which rank did you carry? Which advanced training did you undergo? NCO-career? Officer career? Have you been on field duty together with units of other countries so that you are able to compare skills? As long as you served as draftee your comment is not worth a dime. Would you consider the pronouncement of an assembly-line worker as being relevant for characterizing a company's know how? Either way, "one of the best trained armies in the world" sounds a little bit too patriotic and glorifying.-- CSA8720 (talk) 13:47, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Appearance[edit]

"Branches of service are identified by beret colors: scarlet for the honour Guard; green for infantry; black for armor; cherry for air force; and dark blue for quartermaster."

Actually, members of the air force wear a so called "Fliegerschiffchen" (flight-cap) (as can be seen on this picture). As far as I know, the colour cherry is not used. However, members of the 25th Infantry Bataillon ("Jägerbataillon 25") are wearing a wine-red (bordeaux) beret and the military police ("Militärstreife") wears a coralline beret. Further information can be found here on the offical homepage of the Austrian Armed Forces (however, it is in German!). NTurrini (talk) 14:16, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
