The Serbian Army of Krajina (Serbian: Српска војска Крајине/Srpska vojska Krajine, СВК/SVK), also known in English as the Army of the Republic of Serb(ian) Krajina, was the armed forces of the Republic of Serbian Krajina (RSK), a Serb breakaway state in Croatia during the Croatian War of Independence (1991–95). The army was officially established on 19 March 1992. The RSK covered an area of some 17,028 km² at its peak, and was located entirely inland and thus had no navy. The military, along with the self-proclaimed Republic of Serbian Krajina, dissolved in 1995 following the Croatian Operation Storm.

Mercenaries and paramilitary

There were around 700 former JNA officers, mostly from Serbia and Montenegro, that fought on RSK's side. Foreign fighters were mostly from Russia.[3] Paramilitary organizations established in Serbia (but including Croatian Serb volunteers) supporting the RSK were White Eagles (Beli orlovi), Serb Volunteer Guard (known as Tigrovi), Serbian Guard (Srpska garda), and others.
