The Serb Army of Krajina (Serbian: Српска Војска Крајине / Srpska Vojska Krajine ; abbreviated СВК / SVK) was officially formed on March 19, 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 state of Serb Krajina, dissolved in 1995.
