    Rare photo from few years ago, "destruction" of outdated and uneconomic tanks in Serbian army. These T55s were naturally replaced with modernised thin air.

    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.

    Anyway if only the serbian military would have had better and more plentiful gear in those days. Maybe a lot more wrecks like that would have littered the serbian countryside.

    Yeah they did Smile Funniest part is that they are over 50 Very Happy

    Actually we were still dubbed as "Yugoslavian army" back then, but it was basically Serbia fighting, as Montenegro was sort of left out on airstrikes of any real magnitude and navy was not in combat.

    "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."

    "The great success of the Army of Serbia

    A ten-member team of the Army of Serbia (Special Brigade) was in the UK where they took part in the marksmanship competition organized by the First Division of the Army of Great Britain. The competition included two categories, pistol Glock 17 and the gun SA 80. During the competition, participants performed in ten very demanding tactical situations with both types of weapons. In the competition of 23 teams, in handgun category Serbian team won first place in the team standings, a sergeant first class Jovica Bubalo first place in the individual standings. In the discipline assault rifle, team of the Serbian Army took the seventh place.

    Major General Giles Hill, stressed the importance of fire training for each army and also commended members of the Army of Serbia for the results achieved. To the Members of the Serbian Special Brigade, the hosts were the members of the Royal Irish Regiment ( "1 IRISH"), which continues the tradition of 10th, 16th and 36th divisions, units that together with Serbian army fought during WW1 on Greek front."




    Not bad considering fact our guys never had chance to train with SA80.
