I am pleased that you have found your way to Offiziere.ch. Offiziere.ch is a private blog dedicated to the news of the day related to security policy, the army, media and information technology. This blog is neither officially nor unofficially affiliated with the Swiss army or any organisation within the Swiss army. The information in the articles comes from sources available to the public – no insider information is published here. The commentary represents the subjective opinion of the blogger and may, from time to time, be a bit tongue-in-cheek. Guest articles (usually identified as such) and visitors’ comments do not necessarily reflect the administrator’s own views.
Offiziere.ch receives over 4,500 visits each week, corresponding to over 18,000 visits a month. About one third of the visitors are accessing the site from Switzerland, another third from Germany and the last third from the rest of the world (as of July 2014). Offiziere.ch maintains active contact with people and organisations interested in security policy and has had a cooperative relationship with “Sicherheitspolitik” on Facebook since the beginning of April 2012.
We are looking for people interested in creating and publishing contributions on offiziere.ch in the areas of security policy, military technology, military history, etc. For additional information and questions please contact the administrator.

If you live in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), you probably can’t reache the site onter the domain name “offiziere.ch”. It seems, as of September 2015, the UAE blocked the domain because of the article “Military Ramp at Abu Dhabi International Is Operational“. In this case, try our alternative domains: officers.ch, offiziere.info, trust-us.ch or use our IP-address 126.96.36.199. If you live in a such country, it is highly recommended to use the Tor Browser anyway. If all these do not work, this likely means our main server is down; you can then access our mirror, updated hourly.
Q: What does it mean when a link is underlined before I mouse over it (sample link)?
A: Underlined links are no longer active. This designation helps me to either update or remove invalid links.
Q: Which mountain is that on the cover picture?
A: It is the Matterhorn in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. The cover picture was provided by Günter Borgemeister, Swiss Landmarks. For additional views of the mountain, please check out the beautiful video by Christian Mülhauser embedded below.
I hope you enjoy reading offiziere.ch.
