USA wants to arm Croatia

Posted by picard578 on August 11, 2019

Croatia has to receive new fighter aircraft by 2023., as by then MiG-21s now in service will not be usable any longer. As process will last for at least two years, possibly longer, it is high time for it to start, yet it did not.

Heritage Foundation indicated that USA wants to arm Croatia with new fighter aircraft. This may have to do with the fact that Russia is arming Serbia, whose expansionist and imperialist tendencies are going as strong as ever. USA and NATO already participate in a series of military exercises in Croatia, and Croatia may also receive Bradley IFVs.

Tendencies in BiH also show that a new conflict may be brewing. Bosniaks are attempting to force unitaristic and centralistic policies and are engaging in political violence over Croatians, denying them political and social rights. Serbs are reconstituting and expanding armaments industry.

Currently, due to incapability of Croatian Air Force, Hungarian Air Force is responsible for night protection of Zagreb airspace.

    Not for long if they keep flying their Gripens into runways the way they do.In 2015 in the course of one month. they crashed two (out of 14 total) on landing (one single seater and one double seater).
