A White Paper noted unequivocally that there was no longer a risk of sudden attack in Central Europe, to which the armed forces would have to respond at short notice.

That was only possible by shrinking the armed forces smaller headcount, less technical equipment and fewer bases by removing capacities that were deemed less important after the end of the Cold War and by limiting investment into equipment and military infrastructure.
