    So it was maybe not "close combat"
    There were reports of use of women in close combat or tank driver by soviets, there is an osprey book about heroines of soviet union which mention some of them. I remeber of a combat medic who captured alone 14 german soldiers...

    OK back to the topic...

    ts fine to mention the importance on technology, but Serbia's military is hardly high tech and dependent on a few obsolete aircraft which sometimes lack even basic parts.
    Your Mig's and Oraos weren't recently upgraded?

    IMHO no technology can replace the basic men/women in uniform on the ground with a rifle or in a MBT.
    You're right but without an accurate technological support, these men/women are dead... How many taliban/insurgents dead for one occidental soldier... The problem is the cost : one million dollars to kill one viets said the american during vietnam war! Hard to a small country like Serbia and even for middle contries like mine (1,3 millions euros per day in A-Stan for France).

    Accurate technological support is important i agree, but like you said the cost is high.
    In the current climate of financial turmoil the emphasis should be placed on the basics like good infantry, competent artillery, excellent logistics and so on. Since Serbia has more than enough armor/artillery as well as domestic capabilities for producing ammunition for all of its weapons the allocated funds should be spent on the basics and as much combat personnel as possible. Once the state budget increases any extra funds allocated to the military should be invested in modernization and new technology.

    As far as the aircraft are concerned Orao is obsolete and the few Migs that have been upgraded sometimes lack even the most basic parts also the flying hours of the pilots are on the low side.

    As far as the aircraft are concerned Orao is obsolete
    Obsolesence is a relative notion. Oraos or Super-Galebs could do a good job in supporting troops in a war like Afgahnistan, at a much more effective cost than B-1, F-15, F-16 or even A-10. The subject has been discussed in other threads about air power but even the USAF currently tests cheaper, lighter COIN aircrafts...

    the few Migs that have been upgraded sometimes lack even the most basic parts also the flying hours of the pilots are on the low side
    I concede these are points of concern, especially pilots training...
