bojan, i remember that you had somewhere the all different yugo  weapons lists which i have yet to rediscover in tanknet archives, but was there a artillery thread too or i´m just imagining it?

 

i must admit that i find yugo armed forces most interesting topic, since they and finland and sweden* are 3 completely different paths to a ´´normal´´ post-ww2 army in european conditions. (normal as in sense of preparing for normal, defensive ,  non-nuclear war with NOT only all-armored/IFV units or preparing for COIN ops  :)  )

 

 

* but not swiss military , swiss are just a  preppers group in extreme  :D

There were multiple tiers for a readiness of equipment, I am pretty sure I am missing some finer details:

- 1 - In use - as can be assumed, actively used and people trained for it

- 2 - Emergency use - similar to US "substitute standard", IOW in use due the lack of better things

- 3 - Active reserve - in reserve, people trained for it are in the active reserve (20-35 y/o that have finished army service IIRC)

- 4 - Passive reserve - no people trained for it in the active reserve, only 2nd and 3rd call reserves available for it. This one had 2 subclases, depending if people trained for it were in the 2nd or 3rd call reserve.

- 5 - Wartime reserve - only for wartime use, no personal trained for it, only use is with newly trained soldiers during wartime, but there is enough of those weapons for a mass issue.

- 6 - Wartime emergency - weapons that were too few to be generally issued even in wartime, only issued in the case of drastic emergency.

 

In the 1990. infantry weapons would be something like this:

- 1 - M70 AR, M72 SAW, M76 sniper, M84 MG, M79 ATW, 82mm M69 mortar, 82mm M60A RCL

- 2 - M59/66 SAR, M53 MG, M57 ATW, 82mm M60 RCL (older model, had pneumatic tires and was somewhat heavier)

- 3 - M70 AR, M59/66 SAR, M72 SAW, M76 and M69 snipers, M53 MG, 82mm M60 and M60A RCL

- 4 - M59/66 SAR, M48 rifle, M56 SMG, M48/52 sniper, M53 and MG42 MG, 82mm M60 RCL

- 5 - M24/47, M24/52, M98/48 rifles, MG34 MG, PPSh and Thompson SMGs, 82mm M34/49(n) and other WW2 vintage converted mortars, 75mm M20 and 57mm M18 RCL

- 6 - unconverted original Mauser rifles in 7.92sx57, ZB-26/30 LMGs, various WW2 9mm SMGs, etc

 

Brigade/Regiment artillery support weapons in 1991 would be:

- 1 - 76mm M48B1 mountain gun, 122mm D-30J howitzer, 105mm M56 howitzer, 120mm M52 and M75 mortars

- 2 -  nothing. Brigade artillery was fully filled in all "A" units and active part of the "B" units

- 3 - 76mm M48B1, 122mm D-30J, 105mm M56, 105mm M2, 120mm M52 and M75

- 4 - 76mm M48B1, 122mm M38, 105mm M2, 105mm M56, 120mm M52 mortar

- 5 - 76mm M1-4/50(a) mountain gun, 105mm M18/61 howitzer, 120mm M38 and M43(s) mortars

- 6 - 76mm M38/48(n) mountain gun, 105mm M18(n), M18/43(n) and M18/43(f) howitzer, 105mm M3 howitzer, 120mm M42(n) and M43® mortars

Depending how long warning to a crisis was. During Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia it was estimated it would take about a week to fully mobilize B class units. Formally, it was possible to do even faster if there was increased state of readiness (Invasion of Czechoslovakia caught Yugoslavia with a surprise). R type units would be a wild guess, but at least two weeks is my estimate, possibly more if those were lower importance units.

Actually had it on the computer, so did not have to dig in the papers:

1987. version, but early '80s should be similar. Before that there would be P instead of AP, some SAR instead of  AR, and probably different Command section, but I have no data for it. Generally I have very few data for an AD...

i must admit that looking at M60 APC  and seeing how it was supposed to fit squad, equipment, ammunition, on some recoilless rifles, then thinking about average yugoslavian height, first thought was that the machine must be a lot bigger than it appears on pictures. or they were just standing up like in city bus, holding on to some rails on the ceiling

Well, it was called "Peglica" (Little Flatiron, also nickname for Polski Fiat 126) for a reason. :) Armored units had a limit on a max height, IIRC 180cm (but it was ignored often). OTOH it is not "that" small - it is actually slightry longer (~20cm) than M113 (but is lower about 20cm and armored hull is narrower).

M-60/60P originally had a crew of 3, with 10 dismounts.  When ATGMs were introduced one seat was removed and instead storage for two launchers (and 8 missiles in their transport boxes) was made.

M-60PB had crew of 4 (added RCL gunner). Loader was AAMG gunner. It had 8 dismounts - one seat was lost due the RCL gunner, other seat was adopted to fit storage for 10 RCL rounds (yes, ammo load was 10 rounds total). Additionally carriage for one RCL (and tripod for M2HB AAMG) was supposed to be carried externally, but I am not sure if I have ever seen carriage for RCL being carried. AAMG ammo was carried externally.

 

M-60 was not really a fortunate vehicle, it almost resulted in a "ban" on developing domestic AFVs, only need to replace it lead to M-80 development getting a go. Production of M-60 stopped in 1976-77.
