When on October 3, 1990 the re-unification of West- and East Germany became a fact, one of the most powerful armed forces of the Warsaw Pact was deactivated, while only four months later most units were disbanded. Only a very small part of the 700 aircraft and helicopters of the East German armed forces would be integrated in the West German system. This booklet illustrates the aircraft and helicopters of the East German Air Force, Army and Navy during the last months of their operational life within the German Democratic Republic. It also incorporates some photos of East German equipment that has found (temporarily or more permanently) employment in the Federal German Luftwaffe.
