Aircraft used and lost in Yugoslavia during NATO aggression of 1999            Part 1


Information you will find on this page may be somewhat speculative and a lot of it was not confirmed by NATO or Yugoslavia. But all aircraft losses mentioned here were reported by Serb, US, British or Russian press or confirmed by sources in the Russian Ministry of Defense. Some of the sources include BBC, ABC, Russian National News Service, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Pravda, Yugoslav official television and press, etc. I do not feel that I have to prove anything stated on this page. If you disagree, it's your decision and you are always free to wait a couple of decades, as in case with the Vietnam War, for all the losses to be officially acknowledged. In any case, the number of aircraft lost indicated on this page coincides almost exactly with the number of losses predicted by Pentagon (before the war begun officials in Pentagon said NATO may loose around 12 planes in the first few days of the conflict. Now its it well beyond the first few days). So, to say that only one NATO plane was lost just because its burning remains were shown on Yugoslav TV and Pentagon had no choice but to acknowledge the loss, would be, to put it mildly, overly optimistic. Some people ask why would NATO command want to conceal its actual losses. It has very good reason to do so: the political situation in the North-Atlantic alliance is very shaky, to say the least, and reports of actual losses would only destabilize the situation further. Also, admitting every loss would most definitely boost the morale in Yugoslavia. I think everyone can understand that this would not be in NATO's interests. I am sure there are more reasons for NATO to conceal its actual losses, at least for the time being.

I understand that some of the information below may be difficult for many people to deal with, after all, every downed plane can and often does mean a dead pilot. Nevertheless, it is important for everyone to know what is happening in Yugoslavia and who is paying for that. I apologize for not being able to conceal by delight at NATO's losses, but NATO is the aggressor in this war.

It is rather interesting to observe the reaction of some Americans to the considerable losses sustained but not confirmed by NATO: complete and total denial. One would think that it would be reasonable to say that if a "stealth" aircraft was tracked by a Serb radar and shot down by Serb SAMs (shortly after NATO officials announced that "they feel comfortable" with how Yugoslav air defenses were "effectively suppressed."), then any NATO plane was in considerable danger. One would also think that after failing to complete the first phase of the war - suppression of Yugoslav air defenses - and announcing the second phase - low-level attacks on armored vehicles and artillery - NATO pilots would be in far greater danger than any NATO commander could have imagined only a week ago. After all, now NATO pilots need to chase around Serb tanks while Serb air defenses are still very active and quite effective. However, ability to think rationally comes to most Americans only after the first coffins with US soldiers return home.

For those speaking Serbian: here s a link to a good source in your language about NATO's aggression against Yugoslavia as well as technical information about NATO, Yugoslavian, and Russian weapons.
