The Army of the Republic
of Bosnia And Herzegovina, was created on April 15,
during the early days of the Bosnian War.
Before, the ARB&H was formally created, there existed a number of
groups such as the Green Berets,
Bosnia's territorial Defence
forces and Civil defence groups, as well as many criminal gangs and collections of police and
military professionals. The army was formed under poor circumstances,
with very low supply of armory. It had a very low number of tanks, APCs
and it had no military aviation assets. The army was divided into Corps.
First commander was Sefer Halilović.
