      The NATO bombing of Yugoslavia was NATO's military operation against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The operation was not authorised by the United Nations and was the first time that NATO used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council and against a sovereign nation that did not pose a threat to members of the alliance. France participated in the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, which resulted in a UN administration of Kosovo and then to eventual independence. France currently has 1,368 troops serving in Kosovo in the NATO led Kosovo Force. Originally there was 7,000 French troops in KFOR.

     
     

     The Kosovo Force (KFOR) is a NATO-led international peackeeping force responsible for establishing a secure environment in Kosovo.  KFOR entered Kosovo on 12 June 1999 under a United Nations mandate, two days after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1244. At the time of UN Security Council Resolution 1244, Kosovo was facing a grave humanitarian crisis, with military forces from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in daily engagement. Ethnic tensions were at their highest and the death toll had reached a historic high. Nearly one million people had fled Kosovo as refugees.As of February 1, 2012, KFOR consists of 5,790 troops

     
     

STRUCTURE OF KFOR  STRUKTURA SNAGA KFOR-a

 

      Sa prelaskom na takozvana "Prelazna vrata 2" KFOR je doživio još jednu rekonstrukciju, naime broj Borbenih grupa je smanjen na samo dvije. To je učinjeno pred kraj 2010. godine, na osnovu novonastale sigurnosne situacije na Kosovu (rad Kosovske policije i struktura EULEX-a (Misija provođenja zakona evropske unije).

      With the move to the so-called Transition Gate 2, KFOR has been restructured, reducing the number of MNBGs to two. The decision to restrucutre was taken in October 2010, based on the security situation in Kosovo and the performance of the Kosovo police and the European Rule of Law Mission (EULEX).

 
     

      Komanda KFOR-a ostaje locirana u bazi "Filmski grad" pored Prištine, a postoji još dvaneast drugih vojnih baza širom Kosova u kojima su stacionirane čete iz sastava KFOR-a. Dodatno, uz snage smještene na teritoriji Kosova, NATO nastavlja sa održavanjem rezervnih snaga spremnih za slanje na Kosovo ukoliko to situacija bude zahtijevala.

     HQ KFOR continues to be located at Camp Film City and there are twelve other Camps to accommodate the companies of KFOR. In addition to the KFOR troops in Kosovo, NATO continues to maintain a reserve force ready to deploy if necessary and required. 

     
 
     

      Borbena grupa (ovdje) podrazumijeva vojnu organizaciju razine bataljona koji se sastoji od brojnih četa. Ove su čete visoko pokretljive, spremne za brzo raspoređivanje na potencijalne "opasne točke" po cijeloj teritoriji Kosova. Po novoj strukturi, postoje samo dvije Borbene grupe. Štab Borbene grupe Istok (HQ MNBG East) se nalazi u bazi Bondsteel, dok se štab druge grupe (HQ MNBG West) nalazi u Camp Villagio, u Italiji.

      A Battle Group is a military organization at the level of a battalion, consisting of numerous companies. These companies are highly mobile, flexible and rapidly deployable to potential trouble spots all over Kosovo. There are two MNBGs, which constitute KFOR and are ready to react to any threatening situation: HQ MNBG East, located at Camp Bondsteel and the HQ MNBG West, located at Camp Villagio Italia.

     
     

     KFOR je pod jedinstvenim komadnim lancem, kojim zapovijeda Komandant KFOR-a (engleska skeraćenica COMKFOR). Ovaj odgovara zapovjedniku združenih snaga (engleska skraćenica: COM JFCN) smještenom u Napulju u Italiji. Trenutni COMKFOR je njemački general major Erhard Drew, koji je na ovu dužnost stupio 09. 09. 2011. godine.

     
     
      KFOR comes under a single chain of command, under the authority of Commander KFOR (COMKFOR). COMKFOR reports to the Commander of Joint Force Command Naples (COM JFCN), Italy. The current COMKFOR is Major General Erhard Drew, German Army. He assumed command of the Kosovo Force on 9 September 2011.

BATTLE GROUPS INSIGNIAS  OZNAKE BORBENIH GRUPA

 
 
     

      As of 1 February 2010, the Multinational Task Forces changed the structure and become Multinational Battle Groups. KFOR contingents were originally grouped into 4 regionally based multinational brigades. The brigades were responsible for a specific area of operations, but under a single chain of command under the authority of Commander KFOR. In August 2005, the North Atlantic Council decided to restructure KFOR, replacing the four existing multinational brigades with five task forces, to allow for greater flexibility with, for instance, the removal of restrictions on the cross-boundary movement of units based in different sectors of Kosovo.

AUSTRIA  AUSTRIJA

 

      Austrijski kontingent na Kosovu pod vodstvom NATO-a (KFOR) raspoređen je od ljeta 1999. Glavnina kontingenta služila je u okviru Multinacionalne operativne grupe Jug (MNTF S) - jedinice veličine brigade sa sjedištem u Prizrenu. MNTF S je formiran od trupa koje su poslale Njemačka, Turska, Bugarska, Švicarska i Austrija, a sastojale su se od 3 manevarska bataljona (ManBn), niza jedinica izravno podređenih brigadi, Multinacionalne logističke jedinice (MNLU) kao helikopterski element. AUCON / KFOR je MNTF-u S osigurao ManBn "Dulje" - jedinicu veličine bataljuna - sa svojim kampom smještenim u Suvoj Reci, uz koji je bila priključena i švicarska četa.

      The Austrian Contingent of the NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) has been deployed since summer 1999. The bulk of the contingent served within the framework of the Multinational Task Force South (MNTF S) - a brigade-size unit with its Head Quarters in Prizren. The MNTF S was formed by the troop contributing nations of Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Austria and comprised 3 Maneuver Battalions (ManBn), a number of units directly subordinated to the Brigade, a Multinational Logistics Unit (MNLU) as well as a helicopter element. AUCON/KFOR provided the MNTF S with the ManBn "Dulje” - a battalion-size unit - with its camp located in Suva Reka, to which also a Swiss company was attached.

     
     

      U skladu s Rezolucijom Sjevernoatlantskog vijeća (NAC), krajem 2010. godine, „Prijelazna vrata 1“ provedena su u okviru odvraćajuće prisutnosti (DP TG1). Glavna zadaća KFOR-a je osigurati sigurno okruženje (SASE) kao treći odgovor, nakon Kosovske policijske službe i EULEX-a. Uz to, KFOR nadgleda obuku Kosovskih sigurnosnih snaga (KBS) i, kada je potrebno, podržava međunarodne civilne organizacije na terenu. S tim je bio povezan rasformiranje ManBn "Dulje" i prijelaz s MNTF S u Multinacionalnu borbenu skupinu Jug MNBG S. Austrijska pješačka satnija bila je izravno podređena OPCON-u MNBG S.

      In compliance with the North Atlantic Council (NAC) Resolution, at the end of 2010, Transition Gate 1 was implemented within the framework of Deterrent Presence (DP TG1). KFOR’s main task is to ensure a Safe and Secure Environment (SASE) as 3rd responder, after the Kosovo Police Service and EULEX. In addition, KFOR supervises the training of the Kosovo Security Force (KSF) and, when necessary, supports international civil organizations on the ground. Connected with that was the disbandment of ManBn "Dulje” and the transition from MNTF S to the Multinational Battle Group South MNBG S. The Austrian infantry company was directly subordinated to OPCON of MNBG S.

OPERATIONAL RESERVE FORCE    REZERVNE OPERACIONALNE SNAGE

 

      Od sredine 90-ih, Snage operativne rezerve su bile spremne za Zajedničko operativno područje (JOA) Balkan, kako su se dogovorili NATO i EU, kako bi upravljale nepredviđenim razvojem situacije. Općenito, ove snage nazivaju se Snagama preko horizonta (OTHF) i u osnovi su rezervne snage na operativnoj razini. Doprinos austrijskih oružanih snaga sastoji se od jedne pješačke satnpješadijske čete opremljene ATV-om "Pandur", ukupno oko 140 vojnika. Ovisno o zadacima ili situaciji, ovaj broj vojnika može se povećati na ukupno 230 vojnika. Ovaj kontingent AAF integriran je u bataljun njemačkog Bundeswehra, zajedno s kojim prolazi sve operativne pripreme i izvodi sve naredne operacije.

      Since the mid-90s, forces have been kept ready for the Joint Operation Area (JOA) Balkans, as agreed between NATO and the EU, to manage unforeseen developments of the situations. In general, these forces are referred to as Over the Horizon Forces (OTHF) and are, in essence, reserve forces on the operational level. The contribution of the Austrian Armed Forces comprises one infantry company equipped with ATV "Pandur” as well as national elements, totaling roughly 140 soldiers. Depending on the tasks or the respective situation, this troop contribution can be augmented to a total of 230 soldiers. This AAF contingent is integrated into a battalion of the German Bundeswehr together with which it undergoes all operation preparations and carries out all subsequent operations.
