Arkan Super Tigers Volunteer Unit

Arkan Super Tigers Volunteer Unit

Super Tigers Unit as a part of Arkan's Tigers were formed in early 1993 from the officers of Serbian Volunteer Guard (Arkan's Tigers).

Milorad Ulemek aka Legija returned to Serbia at the beginning of the Yugoslav wars and joined the paramilitary unit of the Serbian Volunteer Guard (Arkan's Tigers).

Ulemek was first an instructor, and later was promoted to one of the commanders of the Guard and fought with Arkan in Croatia and Bosnia.

He commanded a special unit in eastern Slavonia called the "Super Tigers", which operated between 1994 and 1995 around the Bihaćkog džepa.

When the Tigers were disbanded in 1996, Ulemek joined the Special Operations Unit of the State Security Service, better known as the Red Berets.

The Red Berets were officially an anti-terrorist unit, but there are media that claim that they actually represented the Praetorian Guard to Slobodan Milosevic.

Ulemek became commander of the Red Berets in 1999.
