Major General Carsten Breuer (59) is to become the new Inspector General of the Bundeswehr. The German press agency found out on Monday in Berlin. He is to succeed General Eberhard Zorn, who took over the post as the highest-ranking soldier in April 2018. The "Business Insider" also reports on
Breuer is currently commander of the new Bundeswehr Territorial Command that he established. His job as head of the Corona crisis team in the Chancellery also attracted public interest.
The new Territorial Command has the "operational command of the forces" - including the army, air force, navy, medical service and cyber/information space - in homeland security. This also includes administrative and disaster relief, hybrid threat situations, civil-military cooperation and the coordination of the deployment of allied forces in Germany or the transfer via Germany.
