The Serbian Army of Krajina (Serbian: Српска Војска Крајине, Srpska Vojska Krajine; abbreviated СВК / SVK) was officially formed on 19 March 1992. The Republic of Serbian Krajina (RSK) covered an area of some 17,028 km² at its peak. The RSK was located entirely inland and thus had no navy. The military, along with the self-proclaimed Republic of Serbian Krajina, dissolved in 1995.
