Is this base in the Netherlands or Germany?[edit]

Looking on Google Earth, this base seems to be in Germany. I'd like some clarification on this.

Answer: It's definitely in Dutch Limburg. I am not sure what the source of your confusion is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.83.114.20 (talk) 19:08, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Brunssum is in the Netherlands, and so is this base. There is another, smaller base in Geilenkirchen, Germany, very close to this one. You may have seen the Geilenkirchen base on Google Maps. 2001:470:7192:0:A2B3:CCFF:FEE6:E40 (talk) 10:57, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Requested Move[edit]

I have moved Joint Force Command Brussum to Joint Force Command Brunssum as requested here [1]. The old article history of the duplicate Joint Force Command Brunssum has been moved out of the way to Talk:Joint Force Command Brunssum/Old to preserve the page history before the merger.

Heidelberg[edit]

All (wrong)"Heidelburg" shall be "Heidelberg" with berg, not burg. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.231.150.40 (talk) 02:21, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Removed content[edit]

I have removed the following content from the article as it does not address the subject and is unsourced. Feel free to readd. Movementarian (Talk) 05:58, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

One of the communication systems that is part of NCSA is the Communication Improvement System - 67, or CIP-67. This communication system is a line of sight system using microwave radios and multiplexers posted in various sites throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The CIP-67 system is controlled by the FB-40 and FBM-40, which is a primitive computer system, used to monitor alarms on the network. The FB-40 was originally designed for the German rail system, but not meeting their very strict specifications, NATO decided to purchase it to monitor the alarms on the CIP-67 system. Another piece of equipment that is used in the CIP-67 system is the Standard Interface Equipment, or SIE, and this is used to make a voice frequency channel from a multiplexor usable with a telephone.

There is a large percentage of civilians at the installation.

I will probably spin this in to its own article. I don't think it belongs here. Movementarian (Talk) 07:04, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

From April 1959, Campbell Barracks, Heidelberg was home to Headquarters Central Army Group (CENTAG) under an American general. It was charged with defending southern Germany against any prospective Soviet attack and consisted of the German II and III Corps and the American V and the VII Corps.


Structural changes began on June 30, 1993, when HQ Central Army Group and Northern Army Group (NORTHAG, Mönchengladbach, GE) were deactivated and replaced by Headquarters Allied Land Forces Central Europe (LANDCENT), which was activated in Heidelberg on 1 July 1993.

The commander of US Army Europe, Gen. William W. Crouch, assumed an additional role as commander of NATO LANDCENT on 15 February 1996. He was the first American to command LANDCENT since its 1993 activation. Originally, the LANDCENT command was to be rotated between German and Dutch generals. The dual command of United States Army Europe (USAREUR) and LANDCENT allowed the continued integration of US Army Europe into NATO's post-Cold War structure. All NATO corps, except for the de:IV. Korps (Bundeswehr), were then multinational. In the mid-late 1990s there were four multinational main defence corps in NATO's Central Region: one Danish-German (LANDJUT), one Dutch-German (I GE/NL Corps) and two German-United States (II GE/US and V US/GE). In addition, an agreement was made which set out the arrangements under which the European Corps, consisting of units from Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Spain, would be made available to NATO in times of crisis. Ensuring interoperability among units of different nations will be an ongoing challenge.

LANDCENT's missions were to:

  1. Protect the peace and deter aggression in NATO's central region (Germany, Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands).
  2. Plan, prepare and direct operations of land forces under NATO command.
  3. Plan, coordinate and conduct the land and air subcampaign jointly with NATO's Allied Air Command, Central.
  4. Develop plans for, and participate in, the MCP and Partnership for Peace (PfP) initiative.
  5. Support the flanks of the area of responsibilities.

The departure from the Cold War era brought the implementation of a new NATO Integrated Military Structure and LandCENT was formally designated Joint Headquarters Centre (JHQ CENT) in a ceremony held on March 9, 2000.[1] The new structure, which accompanied this designation, included personnel from five additional nations: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Norway and Poland - making a total of 12 NATO Nations contributing to the Headquarters. On July 1, 2004, JHQ CENT Headquarters once again transitioned, when a ceremony marked its re-designation as Component Command-Land Headquarters, Heidelberg.

CENTAG[edit]

I undid the edit that reverted this article to a history that included much of the above CENTAG information. Rather that simply reverting the article in the future, add properly sourced information back into the article. I am not adverse to some of the CENTAG information being in the article, however it should really be spun off into it's own article on FC Heidelberg. I am working on a FC Heidelberg article in my userspace, but if someone else wishes to do so: feel free. Movementarian (Talk) 05:25, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
