"Intimate Enemy" ....Virtually encircled on all sides, the Royal Yugoslav Army was from the start in bad shape. This situation was aggravated by its shortcomings in modern war material, a calamitous deployment and lack of reliability of several units, in particular Croats. Desertions, revolts and mutinies broke out quickly in some areas. While Panzer Divisions always met a lot of resistance, rare Yugoslavian armored forces were sometimes required to ensure policing in rear areas. The 2nd Battalion tanks of the 2nd Army were allocated to form mobile detachments to resume control of sectors held by Croat rebels.
