  • Almost all of the fleet was captured by the Axis powers during the April 1941 invasion of Yugoslavia, but a few vessels escaped to form the KJRM-in-exile, which operated under British supervision. Later in the war, several vessels that had been in Italian service were returned to the KJRM-in-exile, and these were joined by a British corvette.
  • The Fury Mk II is armed with:. 2 x 7.7 mm Vickers E machine guns, nose-mounted (600 rpg = 1,200 total) Usage in battles. Fury Mk II similar to the Fury Mk I in terms of usage, slightly faster than the Mk I but not by much. It got a good manouverbility to avoid being shot at, turning is one of its strong points but there is still some enemy planes that will be able to out turn it.

The Royal Yugoslav Air Force (henceforth referred to as the JKRV - Jugoslovensko Kraljevsko Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo) was the successor to the Serbian Military Air Service, one of the youngest air forces in the world. However, it would not be until 1921 that the JKRV was a self-sufficient, independent air force, untied from French leadership, who supplied and outfitted them till that point.

In War Thunder, the M13/40 (I) represents those made earlier in the production run, with manual turret traverse instead of hydraulic traverse gear. Reportedly Italian crews would remove the hydraulic traverse, which was cumbersome; the (I) model has extra ammo storage to reflect that. Apr 07, 2020 Between 1938 and 1941, the Royal Yugoslav Air Force received 24 British Hawker Hurricane Mk I aircraft. 20 more were built under license by Zmaj. Currently, War Thunder doesn't have this early production model. 31- L-17 Optional, it could come along with the Doraden. This is a MiG-21bis. It was designated 'L-17' in Yugoslav service.

In 1923, it was decided that the JKRV needed to be modernised by replacing all the WWI-era biplanes with newer aircraft. They employed contractors both domestically and abroad, and quickly increased the numbers of both their aircraft and crews. Up until 1939, many flight schools were opened, for pilots as well as engineers, electricians, and mechanics, who serviced and built the aircraft. The pilots themselves, few as they were, were trained heavily on personal flying skill, rather than tactics and formations, as it was rightly anticipated that in a war any enemy they faced would outnumber them heavily, and the pilot’s skill would determine the outcome.

In the interwar period, Yugoslavia bought, and manufactured through license, many foreign planes. These included, but were not limited to the fighters Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3a, Hawker Hurricane Mk.I, and Hawker Fury Mk.II, the bombers Dornier Do 17K, Bristol Blenheim Mk.I, Savoia-Marchetti SM.79, as well as the light reconnaissance aircraft Breguet 19 and Potez 25. These were all British, Italian, German, or French planes, and they composed the vast majority of the country’s aerial forces. All Yugoslavian-made planes were used for training purposes or as utility aircraft save for the IK-3 and IK-2 planes. The IK-3 was the successor to the IK-2, and was reputed as being at a similar level to the Messerschmitt and Hurricane planes that they already employed, with much better maneuverability but slower and more cumbersome.

Throughout 1940, the United Kingdom supplied Yugoslavia with an increasingly large amount of military equipment, most of which were aircraft, which the JKRV desperately needed. This was done to prevent the German forces from invading Yugoslavia, or at least to delay and weaken the Luftwaffe until such a time when the Allies could send help and reinforcements. However, that notion proved false. With the coup d’etat of the pro-German government led by Prince Paul, the Germans struck a swift blow to the heart of Yugoslavia, by terror-bombing the capital city of Belgrade. The JKRV quickly responded by sending out their entire garrison. The JKRV managed to score a total of around 50 confirmed kills, with assistance from ground anti-air artillery. However, while the battle in the skies was raging on, the ground troops were routed, and Yugoslavia fell under Axis occupation. Outnumbered, with no-where to go, most of the remnants of the JKRV resorted to a sort of aerial guerilla warfare, aiding scattered Yugoslav soldiers where they could, until they were eventually shot down.

The remnants of the JKRV fled to either the UK, France, Greece, Egypt or the USSR. However, some pilots decided to stay and join the Yugoslav Partisans. Upon the creation of the Independent State of Croatia in 1941, their air force consisted of captured JKRV planes. With a mixture of free-willed defection from the side of the Croatians and re-capture of their air force by the Partisans, they slowly but steadily gained an air force. This was the first time in history that a rebel group had managed to have a fully independent air force. Later on, in 1944, the UK and the USSR provided ample amounts of aircraft to the Partisans, allowing them to easily push back the occupiers.

After the liberation of Yugoslavia, and the formation of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the JKRV was succeeded by the Yugoslav Air Force.

Rise of Luftwaffe

By Joe F. Kudrna

The 1919Treaty of Versaillesand its subsequent rulings at the close of World War 1 (1914-1918) against the defeated Germans specified they shall have “no armed aircraft”, specifically a military air force (or aircraft used for military purposes), or even police force. However, Germany wasted no time in building a new air force even as the ink dried on the treaties and did succeeded to secure a 1922 exemption to allow for civilian and commercial aircraft. Germany only needed a place to hide their military air corps aspirations.

By 1924, the new German air corps was alive and growing in a training airfield in the Soviet Union in Lipetsk. Rather than train a large force, it was more to learn and develop the techniques to manage a wholly new branch of the military (This base was officially known as 4th squadron of the 40th wing of the Red Army). By the time Hitler was even considered as a leader for any political party, the Luftwaffe was very alive and growing. Additionally the German government supported gliding clubs all over as a restriction free way to encourage flying and aircraft designing, not necessarily for military purposes but certainly for national pride.

During the 1920’s the German aviation industry was growing, catching up with the technologies from other countries thanks to both exemption of civil aviation and foreign interests. Engineers such as Claudius Dornier, Hugo Junker, Willy Messerschmitt and others made a name for themselves in the world (see the giant Dornier Do-X flying boat for instance), and an entire industry to support aviation was rapidly expanding.

The early 1930’s saw explosive growth in German aviation, closely tied, practically in lock step with Hitler’s rise in power and his assigned deputy to aviation Hermann Göring. At first they established a “defensive” force, “Luftschutzant”, based in Germany and closed the Lipetsk base. With Hitler becoming Chancellor of Germany on 30 January 1933, the fuse for a the future air force was lit. At first ordering the construction and arming of warplanes such as the Junker fighters and Do-11 series bombers (11/13/23) was done in complete secret, aided in 27 April 1933 by the reorganized and renamed Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM, Ministry of Aviation) was established to establish full control and direct more resources to aviation development. With no challenge by the allies, by May 1933 Chancellor Hitler put out the orders for huge funding to design and build new warplanes, but still under disguise as civilian transports (for example Do-17, He-111, Ju-86), and use the civilian aviation to push technologies that could be used in the military (see He-70)

Still the pace of political change in Germany was blistering. On August 2, 1934 German president von Hindenburg died and Hitler was now the unchallenged supreme leader of Germany. All aspects of hiding warplane was cast aside in violation of law (Hitler even bragged it). The Treaty of Versailles was no longer in force. In fact, England and France did get wind of the a secret air force, but instead of directly challenging Hitler, France built the Maginot Line and England made pacts and built its own defense. The fledgling air force was reorganized several times, gaining new powers with each change.

Parallel to all this secret military development was civilian development that served a dual purpose of building the industry but also for massive propaganda capitol Hitler desperately needed stoke his and Germans peoples pride. Huge sums of money flowed into aircraft manufacturers and the golden years of aviation glowed brighter than ever before and since. For a perspective, in 1931 fabric covered biplanes was the most common aircraft in the skies. By 1934 sheet metal monoplanes had taken over. Speeds also roughly doubled. Besides engines and airframes, new technologies where created in the realm of navigation instruments, radio navigation, pilot health, autopilots, fuels, lubricants, fuel injection, new materials, even radar and jet engines. Other countries also responded with massive budget increases and huge leaps in technology worldwide. The “Space Race” some 30 years later pales in comparison to the Golden Age of aircraft where dozens of nations participated. Today’s aircraft are expected to last about 15 to 25 years. In the 30’s the war planes was planed to be replaced in 2 years, basically a replacement being designed for the production aircraft just as the first was being built.

Still unchallenged by France and England, On 26 Feb 1935 Hitler “officially created” the “Reichluftwaffe” with Hermann Göring as its Commander-in-Chief. The last piece of the puzzle was in place, the veil was lifted, and the new, completely independent armed force was finished. Not everything Hitler said became policy, the “Reich” fell out so “Luftwaffe” was the popular name and began operations 1 March 1935. The most important effect was aircraft production no longer needed to waste energy to hide what they where building. All energies was spend on war craft with no useless details to disguise them. German started to arrogantly display its new military branch in shows across the European continent, even selling them to other countries that wanted them, like the Netherlands, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, Sweden, and of course Spain. To the delight of Hitler and Göring, many German aircraft won international flight competitions against the latest designs of competing nations by staggering amounts.

When WW2 started in 1 September, 1939, Germany had by far the newest fleet of war planes that outperformed almost anything the allies had, and the allies could not match the manufacturing capacity of the freshly built high capacity factories.

If the birth of the Luftwaffe seems something like a Greek mythology, in every way it is. One has to remember that outside Germany, the belief was it sprang into existence in 1935 out of nothing instantly, fully formed and ready to fight. From Spain to the early 1940’s it crushed the air forces of several countries, including UK’s RAF in the first major engagement over France, to many it felt as if the Luftwaffe has the power of Zeus. Today we know it was growing for decades in secret and disguise to the day revealed, but make no mistake its sudden rise to power is still no less remarkable by any measure. The mythos of the Luftwaffe is real and deserved.
