Luxembourg

Luxembourg is another of the 12 founding members of NATO but it does not maintain a significant military force.

Land force: Luxembourg keeps a single Battalion with two Rifle Companies, a School Company and an HQ Company with some heavy weapons, primarily as an internal security force.

Air Force: Luxembourg does not have an air force; however the fleet of 18 NATO E-3 AWACs is registered here and operated by a multinational force based in Geilenkirchen Germany.

Note: On 14 July 1996, NATO E-3A, LX-N90457, overran the runway and crashed into the sea on takeoff from Preveza AB, Preveza, Greece. This happens after the Northern Fury campaign so all 18 airframes are available.
