    BELGRADE – The modernization, improvement in military cooperation and diplomacy through various peacekeeping missions and rise in employees’ living standard were the Serbian Armed Forces’ priorities in the first 100 days of the government, Defense Minister Bratislav Gasic has said.

    Gasic told International Radio Serbia that the rescue of flood-affected citizens and their property was “the priority above all priorities”, and noted that in the process of alleviating the consequences of natural disasters all capacities of the Serbian military were put at citizens’ disposal.

    The defense minister said that the modernization of the Serbian military remains a priority as many resources are not only outdated in terms of technology, but also amortized in the last 12 years.

    “We are speedily working on that in an effort to ensure that all branches of the armed forces-air forces, navy, infantry-are at a high level of capability, and have the full, sophisticated and advanced equipment,” the defense minister underscored.

    Next year, when the base “South” is completed and when we secure necessary conditions for trainings like modern armies do, we expect that it will welcome a higher number of foreign troops, which will bring Serbia significant benefits, and not only financial ones, Gasic said.

    He noted that, in the coming period, members of the Serbian Armed Forces will have major joint exercises, with American marines, and members of the Russian army.

    The defense minister noted that, in the previous period, the Serbian Armed Forces tried to improve the social position of its employees who were granted over 800 apartments in the first 100 days of the government.

    Yes but no money. I think i would be success for them if they could purchase with loan about 15-20 MiG-29SMT

    For all one u came from US and other NATO countries.

    I was member of Yugoslav Army in 1999. I was in 125th brigade, only brigade in our army who get after the Kosovo war in 1999. heroic medal for participation in that war for herosim in same war.

    We lost less then 500 soldiers in that war, and most of them was killed by albanians terrorists not by NATO bombs. Losses in the military technique were minimal, we lost just 15 tanks, 8 planes MiG 29s, rest losses ate irrelevant.

    I was there when NATO troops came in My country, yours officers was speechless when they see what we have from hardware after bombing stops and when we start withdrawing from Kosovo (Serbia).

    After 2000 and 5th October our democratic qovernment destroyed our army by order of the USA.

    Serbia got the Maidan treatment from Uncle Sam the blood sucker. After 2004 Ukraine also had its army rendered useless by the Orange
    vermin and now that is coming back to bite them in the a**.

    The Empire is never happy with any compromise from its vassals. Serbia's pro-Empire regime can bend over all it wants but Serbs will
    still be victimized. I am sorry that the f*cking west takes out its hate on Serbs because it can't take it out on Russians (although it
    is trying really hard). I followed the events of the 1990s closely and it became clear that the west (i.e. NATO, I don't consider Latin
    America to be part of the west) was de facto the successor of the Reich. The arming of the Croats by "peaceful" Germany in a direct
    continuation of the policy of the Nazis, the support for the political descendants of the SS Divisions, just like in the case of Ukraine where the
    Bandera zealots get full NATO support, and so on. NATO's behaviour is overwhelming evidence of its true nature.

    I was in 125th motorized brigade from town in Kosovo and Metohija called Pec. We defend Kosare outpost from 9th April to 10th Jun 1999. My brigade have biggest casualties in that war among all units of Yugoslav Army. We lost 108 men (18 officers and NCOs, 50 regular troops, 13 reservist and 24 volunteers).

    I was wounded in that battle for outpost Kosare in late May. But wound was light and i was back to the my unite after 3 days spend in hospital.

    That is all i can tell u about my brigade and my unite in that brigade.

    Hi
    Thats all? You have not said a word about your unit. It is no secret... On the direct frontlines at Kosare, we had 2th Battailon of the 125th (was in charge from karaula Morina to Djeravice, approximately in the middle was karaula Košare), a small Company of the 72th, a small Company of 63th and three volunteer platoons (lot of Russians and serbs/peoples from my area). You were so in 2th Battaiilon? Good chance that we know each other personally...In which hospital you were for three days?

    It is possible for it to be an upgrade, but it would be very tough to actually build it... The hull and chassis is ba lengthed version of the M-90 Vihor's, which itself was already a significant modification of the M-84. 

    Some is new, some is old.

    "Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday weapons supplies will be one of the topics for discussion during his visit to Russia due to take place next week, announced the russian news agency TASS. "When we manufacture the Nora howitzer we need Kamaz frames that are capable of carrying more than 35 tonnes, and this is one of the grounds for talks with the Russians. Second topic is the artillery gun 2A42 we install on the Lazar armoured vehicle," he told journalists.

    According to Vucic, his country has already ordered two transport helicopters from Russia. "Now we will have to and we have already begun to look at buying combat helicopters, because some of our neighbours have already received 16 Kiowa helicopters," he said [The US Congress approved supplies of 16 such helicopters to Croatia this year - TASS]. "We have to think about response in terms of ballistic missiles, though we seek no conflicts anywhere, with anyone ever. But we are simply to be prepared and are to know that Serbia has relevant forces for anyone who might think Serbia is an easy game," the Serbian prime minister stressed.

    He said Serbia was keeping a close eye on what was going on in neighbouring countries and "cannot allow any violation of the balance of forces in the region." Although "Serbia is a small country and a small nation," it will always have as much means of defense as necessary, "so that no one could ever think of using force against Serbia," Vucic said, adding that his country’s government was tightly working on that matter."


    I do not belive we really will buy "combat helicopters" as this guy said, since atm we have issues funding these two Mi17 transports. And we are almost close to having no operational An26 wich will kill our transport fleet completely. Let alone "balistic missiles". If by some miracle we do get some kind of loan for combat helicopters i got no clue what we could possibly get.. Mi28s and KA52s are way too expencive for us especially in amounts of 10+.

    Maybe Ansat armed recon variant Ansat 2RC... but who would make series of dozen helicopters when there are no other customers.

    They quoted him, and he is not really...into weapons. He finished Law college, he repeats what military "guys" tell him. I guess he assumed if its a cannon that it has to be an artillery. Word "top" (cannon) here is associated with...field gun lets say, i doubt he can tell the difference between howtizer and field gun for that matter.

    "We love you our Homeland" with translation. This song is tightly connected with 1999. bombing of Yugoslavia, it was somewhat of a second anthem and was aired on TV very often, to raise morale.

    Serbs did express interest in Buk, S300 and Pancir S, however i dont think there is money available for any of those. Seems our Kubs will be modernised, Nevas already went though some limited modernisations and overhauls to S-125M1T standard which allows crew to operate them further away from actual radar and launchers, 500m if i recall. There were few times talks about new fighters and air defence Systems with Russia but there is simply not enough money. Ideally we would replace Nevas asap, modernise Kubs and get one SHORAD system to get rid of old systems like BOV3 and 9K31 Strela-1 as they are getting obsolete.

    However its not secret that some high ranking officers from Serbian 250th air defence brigade were in France to visit their units of same kind and they were presented Aster system possibly with goal of selling it to us.

    Serbian army during june will accept into service two used-second hand 3D radars from Slovenia. This was annoynced by chief of defence technology of Serbian MoD general-m Bojan Zrnić. US built radars AN/TPS-70 are in good shape and well maintained, also they are newer than radars of same type that Serbian Army operates atm, which were obtained during 80s. Radars were bought on international tender, with special permissions (Probably US blessing).

    Slovenia replaced them with Ground Master 403 built by Thales-Raytheon Systems group due to high operation costs.

    "Saber Junction 16 is U.S. Army Europe's annual combat training center certification exercise designed to evaluate the readiness of one of its two combat brigades to conduct unified land operations (a simultaneous combination of offensive, defensive and stability missions), with an emphasis on tactical interoperability among allied and partner-nation forces. This year the exercise will focus on the 173rd Airborne Brigade.

    Saber Junction 16 will include nearly 5,000 participants from 16 allied and European partner nations on the Army's Hohenfels Training Area in southeast Germany, March 31-April 24.

    In addition to the 173rd, Saber Junction 16 will feature units from Albania, Armenia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom, as well as a variety of enabling units from the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force in Europe.

    Saber Junction 16 will feature a multi-battalion, multi-national airborne jump near Hohenfels, followed by several days of air-land operations on the Hohenfels Training Area's Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) air strip. While Saber Junction will take place primarily in Germany, the exercise's main airborne assault force will stage near the 173rd's homebase of Vicenza, Italy, and depart on aircraft from nearby Aviano Air Base. In addition, several allied units will digitally-connect to the scenario through simulations in Lithuania and Romania."
