The Yugoslav People's Army (Jugoslavenska/Jugoslovenska narodna armija, JNA, Slovene Jugoslovanska ljudska armada, JLA) was the army of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia prior to its dissolution.

The YPA is rooted in WWII where Yugoslav partisan force were lead by Josip Broz Tito, which in 1942 become the People's Liberation Army and Partisan detachments of Yugoslavia (Narodnoslobodilačka vojska i partizanski odredi Jugoslavije – NOV i POJ). In March of 1945 NOVJ was renamed the Yugoslav army (Jugoslovenska armija) and finally on December 22nd, 1951 received the adjective People's (narodna) as was the custom with Communist institutions.

Various allegations have been made regarding the ethnic makeup of the JNA, as in the early 1990s, about 90% of the officers were Serbs or Montenegrins.
