Vojska / војска

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

Description

The title means ‘Army’. This magazine appears to have been produced every week for members of the Serbian Armed Forces. It was first published in 1992 as result of the merger of the previous Army titles ‘Front / Фронт’ and ‘People’s Army / Народна армија’, following the break-up of Yugoslavia and the retrenchment back to Serbian control. It ceased publication in 2005 and was replaced by a more modern magazine called ‘Odbrana’. Unlike other Serbian/Yugoslav Army magazines, this title did include a significant amount of coverage of the Serbian Air Force. The period of time in question included the Kosovo War and other important developments in the military history of Serbia.

Publishing History

First issue available in May 1992. Published weekly until 8 September 2005 when it ceased publication after 710 issues. Issue no.134 was dated March 1995.
The editor is unknown.

Novi Glasnik / Ножи Гласник

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

‘Novi Glasnik’ was introduced as the professional journal of the Serbian Armed Forces, following the break-up of Yugoslavia in 1991. The title means ‘New Herald’. It replaced the previous magazine ‘Vojni Glasnik’.

The magazine covers military topics from a tactical and operational level, describing equipment and procedures used by the service. The Serbian Air Force is part of the army, so aviation subjects are included. Each issue deals with a particular theme, such as such as reform of the defense system, the Partnership for Peace programme, new operational procedures and training.

Nasa Krila (2) / Наша Крила

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

Title translates as ‘Our Wings’. The Yugoslav Royal Aero Club originally published a magazine with the title ‘Nasa Krila’ between 1924 and 1941. In April 1948 the Aeronautical Union of Yugoslavia (VSJ) was formed to inherit the role of the pre-war Aero Club. It continued as a central focus for anything concerned with aviation in Yugoslavia. The official magazine ‘Nasa Krila’ was relaunched at the same time. Each issue comprised 16 pages, with a wide range of articles on civil and military subjects, both modern and historical. The editor in chief in later years was Radmila Tonkoviæ.

In 2003 the association was renamed the Aeronautical Union of Serbia and Montenegro, and in 2006 it became the Aeronautical Union of Serbia (Vazduhoplovni savez Srbije – VSS), following the break with Montenegro. The magazine was replaced by ‘Sportsko vаzduhoplovstvo’.

Nasa Krila (1)

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

The title translates as ‘Our Wings’. The Yugoslav Aero Club was first established in October 1921, as the Serbian Aero Club for former WW1 pilots who wanted to continue flying. In May 1922 it was renamed the Aero Club of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians. In 1924 it was decided that a professional magazine should be produced, bearing the name ‘Nasa Krila’, which was to be an integral part of the Aero-club.

The first issue of the magazine came out on June 1, 1924, and thereafter it came out monthly, until 1932, when it changed to bi-monthly. In 1929 the organisation became the Aeroclub Kingdom of Yugoslavia and finally in 1935 the Yugoslav Royal Aero Club ‘Our Wings’. Publication halted with the Nazi invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941.
