Yugoslav Ground Tech Tree (Including Bosnia, Croatia, N. Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia!)

New systems revealed at Partner 2023 so far!

Air defence system “HARPAS”, with twin 40mm autocannons and four RLN missiles of different variants.

Spoiler

Nora B-52 NG “Perun” artillery system, a new variant of Nora B-52 that aims to further mechanize the loading and firing process of this vehicle.

Spoiler

It will be looked into whether these can be added to either big or realistic trees, so keep your eyes peeled for the next update!

So even more things from Partner 2023

And interesting IFV

Another new goodies from Partner 2023 expo. A new variant of the M-84 with beefed up ERA and FCS.

Thank you for the input!

The Lazanski is already present in the tree, but the new PASARS-16 variant will be looked into.
An SPAA with an ATGM is… unorthodox to say the least.

It is rumored that Serbia bought 3 batteries of the HQ-17A

I’m not quite sure whether these are rumors or facts as of now, but alongside the HQ-17A there is also talk of the FK-2000, since the three ordered Pantsir batteries likely aren’t arriving any time soon.

Slovenia is also eyeing the purchase of the IRIS air defense system, will post photos/sources when or if they actually buy them ( as a slovene is should have a somewhat fast way of getting that info)

Twin Bofors plus quad SAMs looks like a great addition to a potential Yugo tree.

idk if u know but in my opinion lazar 3M should be removed or at least that particular prototype with russian turret be put in unused because its not gonna have it we all know why (russia’s “special military operation”) so because of that Serbs dont think those turrets are coming any time soon or if ever. Now Lazar 3M is gonna have new domestically produced zastava m12 30mm cannon with NATO (30x173mm) with two mounted ATGMs on the right (those serbian super malyutkas i forgot their name) and a grenade launcher.Turret looks super cool imo better for the game anyways than that russian turret.

So far we haven’t seen an alternative turret for the Lazar 3M, so for the time being this will be the one presented in the tree.
DUBS-20 and DUBS-30 has yet to be mounted on Lazar 3, though we have seen them successfully integrated on the BVP M-80AB2, so either these turrets or other foreign alternatives can be expected.

Another stuff revealed at Partner 2023 is the “Gvozdika-Carnation”, a modernized 2S1 with modern FCS and inertial navigation system. Given that we already have 2S1 in-game, this would be an easy addition into the game since it is essentially the 2S1 with much faster FCS.

When the Unused Vehicles list for Tank Destroyers gets expanded on with information and images it will be added there, since we feel there are more unique options available at a similar BR.

a Yugoslav subtree in the Russian tree would be more appropriate

I would like to hear why you think so, as Yugoslavia is arguably the least sensible of all Eastern-European nations to add as a USSR sub-tree (which I think is a redundant, unnecessary and arguably unrealistic idea in the first place).

5 Likes

The problems with that are A) a large part of Yugoslav equipment is Western vehicles or uses Western components, which have nothing to do with the USSR and would dilute the character of tech trees even more, and B) as cool as Yugoslav vehicles are, there is practically zero gaps or niches in the Soviet tree that can’t be filled by actually Soviet vehicles.

For sure a very good idea, plenty of interesting vehicles that essentially fill all the roles, with the ones that are empty being able to be filled with exports from different nations. Seeing the modern weapon systems coming out of nations like Serbia, etc being implemented likewise gives a steady stream of future vehicles.

Large update!
