AUTHORITY TO ASSIST BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA SEC. 546.

(2) The federated states of Serbia and Montenegro have a large supply of military equipment and ammunition and the Serbian forces fighting the government of Bosnia- Hercegovina have more than one thousand battle tanks, armored vehicles, and artillery pieces.
