all right thank you
Where did the G3's and Ultimax 100's come from?
All weapons the ARBiH had either were captured from the enemy or smuggled in. Apperantly Iran had alot to do with alot of the weapons smuggled in.
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Combatants in Yugoslavia, and especially Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina, used a mix of weapons from a variety of sources. Although the primary weapons were those captured from JNA forces and arsenals, several others were imported by Croatia prior to an European Community arms embargo, while others were older weapons relegated to TDF arsenals.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]The most common irregulars' weapon was the Soviet-designed AK-47, and these were brought in from Hungary, Romania, and Czechoslovakia. German made G-3s and Argentinian produced FN-FAL Para Modelo IIIs were also present in quantity, and photographs showed combatants with Italian SPAS-12 shotguns, Czechoslovak-produced MGV 176 copies of the American AMD-180 submachineguns, and Soviet PPSh-43 submachineguns. Irregulars in Croatia also made extensive use of the Singaporan Ultimax 100 Squad Assault Weapon.[/SIZE][/FONT]
Thanks for the reply.

Super thread. I love the fotos and the info. I collect Armija BiH patches and I love hearing about the individual units. I want to find out is there a place in sarajevo that has an archive of the insignia of the armija BiH forces? I understand that until 1995 they were not formally organized and government approved insignia's. Really, really interesting stuff. I find NO ZB and 4th Korpus hardest to find....
