Before the strategic defence and security review in 2010 there were around 20,000 Service personnel in Germany, of which approximately 19,000 were on Army bases.

There are currently 14,560 armed forces personnel in Army bases in Germany, which is expected to reduce to 12,480 by December 2014 and 6,800 by December 2015. This number will remain broadly consistent until the last major formation, 20 Armoured Brigade, begins its withdrawal towards the end of the decade.
