- In real weather conditions we witnessed the most complex military exercise performed by members of the Army of Serbia and the MA , with the largest number of people and technology seen to date, as the minister said and stressed that the exercise had been carried out successfully.

 - The Army is trained in all conditions to perform the tasks defined by law. I am honored to say that this generation has for the first time seen female cadets are girls who will become part of the command staff since September, which another example of all encompassing reforms of the defense system, which are particularly important in the field of education and training, said Minister of Defence. Furthermore, as he noted, the Military Academy thus proves to be one of the most elite military academies in the region, and what we saw today is not far behind from what is performed at the most prestigious military academies.

General Miletic said that “Diplomac 2011" was an excellent exercise in which cadets of the Military Academy have confirmed their practical skills.

- This is just one segment of our schooling systems proving that cadets have adequate qualification for what they do. Those with the most responsible duties in General Staff are actively involved in education and the work of the MA, Miletic said, adding that he was looking forward to the seeing the participants of today's exercises in the units.

 The exercise started with the offensive of the enemy’s artillery, after which the reconnaissance forces of "the red team" began the onset of the marching order. Our forces responded with fire from 20 mm guns mounted on M80 infantry combat vehicles and 120 mm mortars.

 The onslaught of opposing forces required the engagement of antitank weapons, and the cadets began to launch 9K11 missiles moving on to use 82 mm mortars and 152 mm howitzers. There was a response of enemy artillery at the front line of our defense in the area of Dobre vode which is why the commander gave the order to attack the enemy's artillery using 152 mm howitzers, 84mm mortars and 120mm and M84 tanks.

In order to stop the attack, the infantry emerged from the shelter and took positions and began to use grenade launchers, machine guns and sniper rifles. Enemy forces were presented as the remote-control targets .

The combined engagement of infantry, artillery and armored units of the first group neutralized enemy’s artillery, followed by a powerful attack on their positions.

The engagement of M84 tanks and 120 mm artillery antitank weapons Maljutka and Fagot was particularly interesting for observers.

Cadets about the exercise

At the exercise "Diplomac", female cadet sergeant major Mirjana Borovina was commander of the technical services as a specialist for ordnance. Cadets of the technical services in the exercise "Diplomac" developed a station for supply and maintenance consisting of sections for supplying engine and ordnance.

- Our role in the exercise "Diplomac" was a technical support to the basic units in basic maintenance, undergoing first and second technical overhaul, and in the technical maintenance support units.

For cadet sergeant Sasa Stefanovic, who was in charge of command of tank platoon, this exercise in addition to enabling him to apply what he learned at the Military Academy, was also significant because it was closely related to the topic of his thesis - a tank platoon in attack with tactical warhead to the target practice exercise.

I was commander of the tank platoon at the tactical live shooting exercise. My role was to organize the life and work of vehicles and providing enough ammunition in the area intended for shooting, ready to report on the regiment’s readiness to perform. At the given signal, we launched an attack on enemy positions. Then we took position in sheltered and provided support to introducing third and fourth tank regiments into the attack. These two platoons then set out to pursue the enemy. This exercise is for me is the pinnacle of my education at the Military Academy, enabling us to apply all gained knowledge and practical practicing we had to in training grounds during the training at the Military High School and Military Academy as Cadet Sasa Stefanovic remarked.

Cadet, Sergeant 1st Class Marko Cetanovic was the commander of the first mechanized platoon.

-The task of my regiment was to launch counter-attack as means of defense. We left from the targeted region at the beginning of the exercise, then took positions for defense and directed by the signals and the procedures employed by the second mechanized regiment we started moving towards the support firing position, after which with the tank company of the counter-attack we moved into counter-attack.

Cadet Sergeant Major Hornjak Slobodan, commander of mechanized platoon was in the position of securing combat.

- After spotting the start of the enemy’s attack, my task was to report to the commander of the battle group at whose signal we started retreating towards the marked region. I was chosen to perm this duty because my graduate paper is titled "Mechanized platoon providing combat security", which is why I regard the exercise as a practical defense of my thesis.
