 The Military of Yugoslavia, or the Royal Yugoslav Armed Forces, is the national armed forces of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The Armed Forces are headed by the Commander-in-Chief, the King of Yugoslavia, and each of the Armed Forces are then headed by a Field Marshal.


The branches of the Royal Yugoslav Armed Forces that make up the military of Yugoslavia are the Yugoslav Royal Army, the Yugoslav Naval Command, and the Yugoslav Air Defence Forces.

Each branch operates individually, and under the command of a Field Marshal. The Field Marshals report to the Commander of the Royal Yugoslav Armed Forces, who then can organize joint-operations.

Notably, each branch can operate in air, land, and sea, but they all specialize in their specific area. For instance, the Yugoslav royal Army has its own operating navy for deployment and air force for support and airborne missions, but has its primary focus in infantry operations.
