The title translates as Croatian Soldier. This magazine originally appeared in November 1991 as a fortnightly newsletter published by the Croatian Ministry of Defence (Ministarstvo Obrane Republike Hrvatske). The ISSN was 1330-500X. In May 1995 it was relaunched as a glossy monthly military journal – with 11 issues per year. The ISSN for this version was 1333-9036.
After reaching combined issue number 109/110 July-August 2004, the magazine was again relaunched as a fortnightly, but retaining the high quality editorial style of the monthly. Issue numbering commenced at No.1 again with the 1st October 2004 issue. The ISSN reverted to the previous code, 1330-500X. Four issues per year are combined double issues, in June-July and December-January.
‘Hrvatski Vojnik’ covers a wide range of defence issues, with more than half of the pages devoted to subjects outside of Croatia. All versions of the magazine are very well written and illustrated, and include good coverage of the Croatian Air Force.
