Modernization

MiG-29's currently upgrading.

In late 2003, the Serbian Armed Forces had started mass modernization and reorganization of its entire structure. The first step of modernization was reorganizing all units and command structures to reduce the over all size of the army and make it more maneuverable and professional to respond to dangerous situations, this part of the reorganization plan was fully completed in under 13 months. The withdrawal of old and obsolete equipment and procurement of replacements is currently in the process. Professionalizing of the armed forces is due to be fully completed and implemented by 2010, operating at international standard (NATO) and participating in active peacekeeping operations.

Uniforms

Serbian army is using various camouflage patterns. In year 2001 M-02 was introduced, with updated "Hrastov List" and new KARST pattern, but only in some special units. M-03 style uniform and new MDU camouflage pattern was introduced in 2006 after a year of extensive testings. High-tech material used on M-03 offers better water resistance, very low visibility in visible specter and when using thermal, photo sensory and opto-electronic detection equipment.


The new Serbian MDU camouflage pattern is a five-colour pattern, comprising black, chocolate brown, Grey-green and medium green swathes on a light green background. The shapes have been elongated horizontally, however — presumably to meet NATO requirements. But even today the most common pattern used is M-93, officially-"Hrastov List", commonly called "Jigsaw" or "Puzzle". This 5 colored pattern was produced with lots of variations but primarily in two shades. One towards brown (fall, no snow winter) and one in green (spring, summer).


Serbian Army also uses NATO Woodland pattern, black uniforms for special forces units, white winter camouflages and many other different camouflage and color uniforms.


As for now, M-MDU03 it's primarily worn by the officers, professional soldiers, army special forces as well by regular army stationed at the administrative Kosovo and Metohija border and will soon be in used by all soldiers. Kosovo (known in Albanian as Kosova, in Serbian as Косово и Метохија / Kosovo i Metohija, and in English simply as Kosovo) is a province in southern Serbia. ...


However, Serbian army has concluded that M-03 as well as MDU-03 camouflage doesn't meet requirements of Serbian army, and therefore it will not be issued as standard.Also have a proposal variant of new digital camouflage pattern MD-DIGI. Serbian army is currently developing new combat, ceremonial, dress uniforms and digital pattern M-03, which is expected to become a standard pattern in near future

Some official sources in the army are reporting new ceremonial and dress uniforms; there is also a project to digitize MDU and YPA(JNA) mountain sniper camouflage by the year 2010.

The Serbian Ministry of Defense has participated in the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) since 10 December 2003 when two military observers were sent to the mission. The number of observers engaged in the mission soon increased from two to three, (on 9 March 2003), then six (on 19 May 2004). Currently there are six military observers stationed in Liberia. The observers are substituted after a one-year mandate is over and to-date 20 MoD and SAF members have been engaged. In addition to MoD members, seven members of the Serbian Police Force are currently engaged as well. The current situation is stable. The MoD and Police Force members perform regular duties of military observers while in the mission, such as monitoring the security, humanitarian, social and medical situation by conducting intensive land and air space controls.

The UN Operations in the Côte d’ Ivoire (UNOIC)

The UN Operations in the Côte d'Ivoire (UNOIC) was established by the UN Security Council’s Resolution 1528, adopted on 27 February 2004, based on the Security Council’s estimate that the situation on the Côte d’Ivoire represents a continuous threat to world peace. The mandate was established according to Pillars VI and VII of the UN Charter. The Serbian Ministry of Defense has participated in UNOCI peace operation since 1 May 2004 with 3 military participants. To date, 9 members of SAF and MOD have participated in the mission. Even though the situation in Côte d’Ivoire has been in the object of UN’s constant efforts, the political situation remains at the level requiring full implementation of UN Security Council’s Resolution. Politically motivated and tribal-related incidents are still common. The MoD and SAF members have never been in a life-endangering situation yet this operation remains still very risky.

The UN mission in DR Congo (MONUC)

The UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) was established in November 1999 in accordance with Pillars VI and VII of the UN Charter based on the UN Security Council’s Resolution no. 1279. the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the only mission in which the Serbian MoD participates with a unit, i.e. a national contingent. The unit is made up of the medical team of two doctors and four medical technicians for air-medical evacuation team (AMET), which is based in Kinshasa. Since 7 March 2003, when the first medical team was sent to Congo, 48 MoD and SAF members (18 officers, 18 non commissioned officers and 12 women) have been deployed, and were structured as eight medical teams with a 6-month mandate. Currently the eighth medical team is stationed in Congo. Extreme efforts and result achieved in DR Congo have made them recognizable not only in DR Congo, but in other African countries where they evacuated the sick, the injured and the wounded. The security situation has shown modest improvements. The legally elected governmental bodies have been constituted and political disputes are settled in the Parliament. The process of voluntary demilitarization in the east of Congo has been successfully initiated which can lead us to believe that there will be a general settling down of the situation. Still MoD and SAF members have never been in life endangering situations though there have been verbal threats and their vehicle was stoned, which is the result of the frustration of the poverty-stricken nation and slow process of resolving the crisis in the country.
