Without this important branch of the Luftwaffe, there would have been no serviceable airfields for the flying units, no buildings and shelters on those airfields, no fuel and ammunition dumps, no unit command bunkers, no installations and facilities for the Luftwaffe signals troops (Luftnachrichtentruppen) or a variety of other infrastructure.

Hundreds of battalions and companies were set up over the course of the war, and at approximately peak strength on the eve of the attack on Russia the Luftwaffen-Bautruppen numbered 153,000 officers and men or 10.5% of the Luftwaffe's total uniformed strength.

There were some 26 different types of Luftwaffe construction units, and these are identified in the KStN series L 6332 through L 6397.[1]
