Hi, guys!

Need some help about it (maybe some friends from Serbia could help...)

I need to know about of a possible location of some SAM/EW/Radar guided AAA on 28.04.1999 - 29.04.1999 in this area:

From the original 20 KUB battery, 6 was already out of action by 28.04.1999.
Usually 3 KUB battery was located at Belgrade West (just beyond the Neva firing zone) to surprise NATO.

4 battery of 311srp was fighting around Pristina/Kosovo.


The 230srp had only 2 KUB left around Nis by this time.

Thanks Hpasp!

My mistake I didn't precise the time interval - say 20.00 local time 28.04.1999 to 06.00 local time on 29.04.1999

A complete KUB battery will not jump away in few hours, so +-1 day location should be enough.

PS: Hungarian ST-68U's were also targeted several times with HARMs during the war (luckily without score).
NATO jets were really expecting a Serbian S-300PMU-1 (SA-20A) to pop up any time during the war.

30km NNW from this area is the Leskovac Airport, that was defended by AAA.

Thanks, but it is just outside my "zone of interest"... wink

OAF Day-35

General Marani: Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen. NATO's air campaign is moving systematically and progressively to attack, disrupt, degrade and ultimately destroy Mr Milosevic's military and special police forces, his sustaining infrastructure, command and control and other targets associated with his system of repression. Our Allied campaign is working.

...

Now turning to Serbian ground operations in Kosovo : Serb forces continued to conduct counter-insurgency operations in the Podujevo, Glopocica and Suva Reka areas, as shown on the map. They also continued their effort to interrupt the UCK resupply lines in western Kosovo, on the Albanian border, as shown here. UCK guerrilla operations continued through Kosovo, as depicted on the map.

Turning to Serbian air force activity, Serb air defence activity was light. Two shoulder-launch surface to-air-missiles in addition to anti-aircraft artillery fire. No FRY air force fixed wing activity was noted and once again, we had no NATO aircraft losses.

I will now turn to Nato operations. Yesterday, Allied aircraft attacked the following target sets: strategic command and control facilities and nodes of communication.

This is a video of an earlier attack against the Ivanjica radio relay site, one element of the command and control structure. The integrated air defence system was again targeted, as shown. Petroleum storage and production facilities continue to be targeted, including the facilities at Pristina and Pozaga.

This is a video of a previous attack against the fuel facility.

We again targeted lines of communication, including the bridges at Milosevo, Tristinik and Kosmaica. Serbian forces infrastructure were struck, such as the army training areas at Surdulica and the army barracks at Belgrade. We also attacked fielded forces in Kosovo, including multi-launch rocket systems, armoured vehicles, mortars, radars, military storage areas and a MUP command post, as shown on this video. We await full battle damage assessment of these attacks. Weather prevented further attacks on other planned targets.

Yesterday, SACEUR discussed the Serb reinforcement of the VJ forces in Kosovo. There has been some misinterpretation of this reinforcement. Let me clarify its significance. It in fact demonstrates two points. First, the Serb military cannot make good the losses the air campaign has inflicted on their forces in Kosovo. The Serbs are unable to reconstitute their forces in Kosovo and must rely on reinforcement with new units from outside Kosovo. Second, it demonstrates yet again Milosevic's miscalculations. He thought he could defeat the KLA in a short 5 - 7 day operation with his existing forces on the ground. This, as the reinforcement and duration of his operations in Kosovo shows, was completely wrong and is further testimony to the success of the air campaign.

That concludes the operations briefing for today. Thank you.

You're helpful as always!

But considering my time interval of interest, the "right" briefing should be:



Quote:
General Marani: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. NATO's air campaign continued over the past 24 hours with numerous strikes against airfields, petroleum facilities, lines of communication and fielded forces.

Our military action has had significant impact on FRY military and special police operations and will continue to do so.
..................

Turning to Serbian Air Force activity, although Serb early warning radar activity was observed, Serb air defence was relatively light, with 4 shoulder launched surface to air missiles and 3 unidentified Sams noted. No FRY Air Force fixed wing activity was noted, and once again we had no NATO aircraft losses.



Still, not even a single target of any kind in my zone of interest
