Royal Air Force Germany

The former Royal Air Force Germany (RAFG) was a command of the Royal Air Force and part of British Forces Germany, consisting of those units based in Germany initially as part of the occupation following World War II, and later as part of the RAF's commitment to the defence of Europe during the Cold War.

The command was formed on 1 January 1959 by renaming the RAF's Second Tactical Air Force (2TAF). RAF Germany was disbanded as a separate command in 1993 as part of the reduction of British military presence in Europe at the cessation of the Cold War. The remaining RAF forces in Germany ceased to be a separate command and instead became No. 2 Group RAF, part of RAF Strike Command (now RAF Air Command).
