Does Serbia have a navy?

The River Flotilla was assigned to the Serbian Land Forces following the reorganization of the Serbian Armed Forces following the breakup with Montenegro in 2006, as the new landlocked Serbian military no longer had a maritime component. The flotilla is made up of four small patrol boats that are used for surveillance and security purposes in and around the Danube Delta.

Yes, Serbia has a naval force, but it's very small. It consists only of a few old ships and a river flotilla based in Belgrade. The fleet is under the command of the Ministry of Defense. Most of the vessels are not combat-ready due to lack of funds for maintenance and repairs.

In February 2009, an agreement was signed between Russia and Serbia on cooperation in the naval sector. Under the terms of the agreement, Russia will provide technical assistance to improve the operation of two obsolete ships of the Serbian Navy. The contract will be implemented through a Russian private company. The two ships involved will be sent to Russia for repair and modernization work. When they are returned to service, they will be assigned to different NATO countries so they can learn from each other.

Serbia does not have any aircraft, nor are there plans to acquire any in the future. The country is a member of NATO but not of the EU or US military alliances.

Did Yugoslavia have a navy?

From 1945 through 1992, the Yugoslav Naval (Serbo-Croatian: Jugoslavenska Ratna Mornarica, Jugoslovenska Patna Mornaritsa, lit. "Yugoslavian War Navy") was the country's navy. The Croatian Navy, Montenegrin Navy, Serbian River Flotilla, and Slovene Navy are their successors.

During its existence, the naval force was responsible for protecting shipping lanes, maintaining order in troubled waters, and providing security in coastal areas. It also conducted operations against smugglers, pirates, and terrorists. In addition, the navy maintained several vessels that were used for oceanographic research and taught at the maritime academy in Dubrovnik.

The origins of the modern day Yugoslav Navy can be traced back to 27 November 1918 when the Royal Yugoslav Navy was established after the conclusion of the First World War. It became one of the founding members of the International Naval Conference in London the following year. The name "Jugoslavenska Ratna Mornarica" ("Yugoslav Royal Navy") was adopted soon after its establishment. The name was changed to "Jugoslovenska Patna Mornarica" ("Yugoslav Patrol Boat Navy") in 1991 after Croatia and Slovenia declared their independence from Yugoslavia.

On 3 December 1992, the last naval unit surrendered to British forces during the Bosnian War. After this event, the former officers and sailors were issued with new passports showing them as citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Does Montenegro have an army?

Montenegro's Armed Forces (Montenegrin: Vojska Crne Gore, Vojska Tsrne Gore) include an army, navy, and air force. There is a standing army in the military. Montenegro became NATO's twenty-ninth member in June 2017.

In 2006, Montenegro had an estimated 7,000 soldiers and policemen. In 2016, the number of soldiers had decreased to 5,500. The government plans to reduce the military budget by 20 percent over the next three years.

According to some sources, Montenegro has one of the most powerful navies in Southeast Europe. It has six torpedo boats, two submarines, and about 70 other vessels. It also has aircraft including six attack helicopters and four trainer jets.

Montenegro's air force consists of approximately 100 personnel. It has six MiG-21 jet fighters and two L-39ZA trainers.

Montenegro joined NATO's military alliance in April 2009. It fully entered the alliance on 30 June 2014.

The country's name originates from the Montenegrin language which translates to "friend of the nation".

Montenegro was under Ottoman rule for several centuries before it gained its independence in 1848. It later went through 6 months of war with Yugoslavia in 1991 before signing a peace agreement in 1995.
