English translation:soldier under temporary contract
Explanation:
I believe zvS is the older version of Soldat auf Zeit (SaZ).

Erwin Pitsch, 1941 in Wien geboren, väterlicherseits aus Mähren-Schlesien stammend; 1955 bis 1959 nach der Pflichtschule Ausbildung zum Elektrotechniker; am 1. Oktober 1959 zur 1./FlAAbt I in Zeltweg eingerückt, ab 1960 als zeitverpflichteter Soldat (zvS) bei der 3./FlAAbt I in Salzburg, ab 1963 ZgsKdt in der 1./FlAAusbA Groß Enzersdorf,

Wenn man sich auf Zeit verpflichtet, ist man Soldat auf Zeit (SaZ) und kein Berufssoldat Berufssoldat kann man später werden, aber nur wenn man Eignung, Leistung und Befähigung dazu hat (freier Dienstposten natürlich vorausgesetzt).

SaZ 2 stands for “Soldat auf Zeit” (soldier under contract) with the number corresponding to the length of the contract of two years.

SaZ…Soldat auf Zeit (Germany ‐ temporary-career soldier)

Approximately 30% of those entering temporary-career status (Soldaten auf Zeit) come from the ranks of the GWDLer and FWDLer.48 The only differences between selection for conscripts and for volunteers are that the medical standards are higher for conscripts, the aptitude test is not required for conscripts, and education level is usually irrelevant. Anyone who has done conscript service who then wishes to enter contract service will have to take the aptitude test and must possess the appropriate level of education for his desired track.

In the early 1990s, the Netherlands began a long‐term and conscious effort to redesign military training programs so that they would be compatible with civilian programs (van der Meulen et al. 2000; Ezendam 2001). Behind this push was an explicit recognition that “a low unemployment rate among former professional soldiers [was] considered to be one of the most powerful recruitment assets of the new all‐volunteer army” (van der Meulen et al. 2000, 292). One of the aspects of this attention to post‐military marketability is the fact that every service‐member with a temporary contract (BBT) is supervised by
Commanding officers have also had the option to record the work experience and behavioral characteristics especially of temporary-contract (Beroepsbepaalde Tijd – BBT) service‐members on a “work experience certificate”

"The concept agreed between the Ministry of Defence and the president envisages Poland retaining its 150,000 troops, but the core of the army will be 120,000 professionals," said Lieutenant-Colonel Krzysztof Laszkiewicz. "The army will also include 30,000 (temporary) contract soldiers," he said.
