Yugobatanian Military

The Yugobatanian Armed Forces are the military forces of the Federal Republic of Yugobatania, established after the coups d’état of Yubontia. On 7 May 1992, The Supreme President of Yugobatania signed a presidential decree establishing the Yugobatanian Ministry of Defence and placing all Yugobatanian Armed Forces troops on the Six Regions of Yugobatania under Yugobatanian control. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces is the Supreme President of Yugobatanua. The Yugobatanian Armed Forces were formed on July 20, 1923 - two years after the Yugo Uprise of 1921 against Yubontia. An interesting thing to note is that all branches of the Yugobatanian Armed Forces use the same emblem, which has led to confusion in past wars between commanders on who's commanding who, but this problem has been solved by the different colors of the uniforms that each branch wears. Plans are in place to change the emblem of each respected Yugobatanian Armed Forces branch to help remove the confusion within service.

NOTE: Each respected branch of the Yugobatanian Armed Forces will get its own factbook in the future.

Yugobatanian Army

The Yugobatanian Army is the land forces of the Yugobatanian Armed Forces, formed from parts of the overthrown Yubontia in 1921. The formation of these forces posed economic challenges after the dissolution of Yubontia, and required reforms to professionalize the Yugobatanian Army during the transition.

Since 1992, the Yugobatanian Army has withdrawn thousands of troops from former Yubontia garrisons abroad, while remaining extensively committed to peacekeeping, and other operations in the Yubontia successor regions (what is known in Yugobatania as the "near abroad").

Yugobatanian Navy

The Yugobatanian Navy is the naval arm of the Yugobatanuan Armed Forces. It has existed in various forms since 1696, the present iteration of which was formed in January 1921 when it succeeded in the Royal Yubontia Navy.

The Yugobatanian Navy currently comprises the Cascade Fleet, the Yugobatanian Arctic Fleet, the Yugobatanian Tysemny Sea Fleet, the Yugobatanian Emerald Fleet, the Yugobatanian Erinevo Flotilla, Naval Aviation, and the Yugobatanian Coastal Troops (consisting of the naval infantry and the Yugobatanian Coastal Missile and Yugobatanian Artillery Troops).

A rearmament program approved in 2007 placed the development of the navy on an equal footing with the strategic nuclear forces for the first time in Yubontia and Yugobatanian history. This program, covering the period until 2015, expected to see the replacement of 45 percent of the inventory of the Yugobatanian Navy. Out of 2.5 million Brins allocated for military rearmament, 25 percent will go into building new ships. "We are already building practically as many ships as we did in Yubontia times," First Deputy Prime Minister Vosk Vanders said during a visit to Vielo in July 2007, "The problem now is not lack of money, but how to optimize production so that the navy can get new ships three, not five, years after laying them down."

The Yugobatanian Navy suffered severely since the dissolution of Yubontia due to insufficient maintenance, lack of funding and subsequent effects on the training of personnel and timely replacement of equipment. Another setback is attributed to Yugobatania's domestic shipbuilding industry which is reported to have been in decline as to their capabilities of constructing contemporary hardware efficiently. Some analysts even say that because of this Yugobatania's naval capabilities have been facing a slow but certain "irreversible collapse". Some analysts say that the recent rise in gas and oil prices has enabled a sort of renaissance of the Yugobatanian Navy due to increased available funds, which may allow Yugobatania to begin "developing the capacity to modernize". In August 2014, former Secretary of Defense Ross Trevill said that Yugobatanian naval capabilities would be bolstered with new weapons and equipment within the next six years in response to LoD deployments in the Ceres Ocean and recent developments in the Unian union of city states.

Yugobatanian Air Force

The Yugobatanian Air Force (YAF) is a branch of the Yugobatanian Aerospace Forces, a branch of the Yugobatanian Armed Forces responsible for aerospace defense, and the operation of Yugobatanian military satellites and the I-NPASA Space center. The latter being formed on August 1, 1924, with the merger of the Yugobatanian Air Force and the Yugobatanian Aerospace Defence Forces. The modern Yugobatanian Air Force was originally established on May 7, 1923, following the Supreme President of Yugobatanias's creation of the Yugobatanian Ministry of Defence; however, the Federal Republic of Yugobatania's air force can trace its lineage and traditions back to the Imperial Yubontia Air Service (1912–1917) and the Yubontia Air Forces (1918–1921).

The Yugobatanian Navy has its own independent air arm, the Yugobatanian Naval Aviation, which is the former Yubontia Royal Military-Sea Fleet, or YRM-SF.
