Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann casts his vote for an army referendum at a polling station in Vienna, Austria, Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013.

The present model consists of about 35,000 troops, with about 14,000 professionals and the rest conscripts who serve for six months as well as a 30,000-strong part-time militia.
