Here is a link to a picture Gallery
It is ridiculous, what my post and proves, fat ass photo lens and Fail.
We can see that the gallery of pics from "amateurs" from, Osijek on line site and gallery witch maxo published, are much better they are full of better pictures and information about exercise than official MoD. So we can see that specialist rating is not necessary to deliver.And ultimate stupidity is that We will see those same MoD pics in the next new issue of Hrvatski Vojnik magazine.

Thumbs up ! for new Minister Kotromanovic for this statement
"in administration and commands 1,000 people less equally a battalion of infantry more for the Ground Army"
And for his reforms very good start, We can see that the man was in the military and knows what needs to be done.

Yes civilian,but some kind of trail plates. SB stands for Slavonski Brod city where D.D. factory is.
A couple of photos from Croatian Air Force FB page, some by Katsuhiko Tokunaga
Today on Government session following was presented:
Nearly two thousand members of the Croatian Army will participate in this year record number of 24 international military exercises with the armies of NATO members and partner countries. Ministry of Defense for this activities will provide more than ten million HRK from its budget, and Croatia will on the exercise "CORE BG 2012," which will take place in April in Germany, present a new APC vehicle, which, under a contract with Finland's Patria produces Đuro Đakovic factory.
". In 2012 in the Republic of Croatia will be held seven military exercises which will include a 1654 members of the armed forces, " explained Deputy Secretary of Defense Višnja Tafra, adding that the Army this year will deploy 304 members on 17 joint exercises with our allies.
Very interesting, if I'm not mistaken CORE BG 2012 will be the first time that Croatia sends heavy combat vehicles (I'm not counting the LOVs and MRAPs deployed in A-Stan) abroad. This will probably serve as the final test for AMVs before they are deployed to support our soldiers in ISAF, so hopefully most of them will be weaponized before CORE BG.
It seems me that finally the electoral freeze is ended and Croatia has get a very good minister of defence.
To be 100% sure i'll however wait until defence budget would be assessed.
About Hratski Ponos I found very interesting the ones about G36K and VHS and comparison between the two.
I found interesting that desert cammo can be used in Croatia also.
Army lacks a thousand soldiers
Although the Parliament Development Plan Army ordered the Army to be 10 310 soldiers, NCOs and officers, where the lack of more than 1000 men. That does not mean that in the infantry, there will be no departures from the system and continue the transformation started. Those who are capable and hardworking, not to be afraid of their status, said Major General Dragutin Repinc.
Army soldiers and engineering vehicles help remove snow from public surfaces in Dalmatia near important locations, such as hospitals and reestablish road connections severed by heavy snowfall. 200 soldiers has been called upon to assist, mostly from Motorized Guards barracks in Knin. Meanwhile, the Mountain Rescue Service is evacuating the injured and delivering supplies to cut off villages. God speed to all of them.
Also, specialist training for Artillery battalion was completed a few days at Eugen Kvaternik training ground in Slunj with firing of D-30 RH 122mm howitzers and BM-21 122mm MLRSs.
