The city Pfullendorf Lake Constance can not help their residents do not. But two years ago a handful of soldiers have been through serious misconduct the place and the army in the headlines. Mistakes were made but not only there, but on many levels of hierarchy. There was something run into trouble that exceeds the specific reason? The Bundeswehr has broadly determined, the Internal Leadership Center was the organizer of workshops in which it was determined what is going on in the armed forces and where it falls short.

Since playing a prominent role in the current scenarios helicopter, ES & T has devoted to this topic the focus of this issue: They are used for fighting, rescue and transport tasks. New developments will be presented in several papers. The maneuver "Trident Juncture," with the NATO spearhead has been practicing in May and June in Poland hedging of Eastern Europe against a possible threat from Russia is, of course, not yet evaluated - but the first information does the Joint Support already gained in the deployment of the forces and partially implemented. A look at the development of the Future Soldier shows how the Bundeswehr is preparing for the stakes that have been practiced in Poland.

In politics, the result of the election to the European Parliament is still hotly debated. What can we expect security policy by the new Parliament? How can Europe exist in world politics? This is our guest commentary in this issue. In Germany, many analysts make climate policy for the election results in charge. Is discussed really objectively about this topic? ES & T tries a different analysis of the climate policy.

Some people just smiles about what is reported on the flight readiness of the armed forces. But this is only really relevant to security policy if the Special Air has tasks that are relevant for use. So the problems are there not so serious? ES & T examines.

That's the arc of ES & T 7/2019, which the editors for you, our readers, has tightened.
