The Austrian Bundesheer also Austrian Federal Army (Österreichisches Bundesheer), officially referred to the Austrian Armed Forces, is the name for the military of the Republic of Austria. The main branches are Joint Forces (Streikräfteführungskommando; SKFüKdo), which consist of Land Forces (Landstreitkräfte), Air Forces (Luftstreitkräfte), International Missions (Internationale Einsätze) and Special Forces (Spezialeinsatzkräfte), next to Mission Support (Kommando Einsatzunterstützung; KdoEU) and Joint Command Support Centre (Führungsunterstützungszentrum; FüUZ). Austria,
a landlocked country, today has no Navy; in the period 1958 to 2006 however the Austrian army operated a naval squadron of patrol boats on the River Danube. That duty has been assumed by the Bundespolizei (Federal Police).
