The Medical Corps Unit (MCU) of the 105th Croatian Army Brigade from Bjelovar, Croatia, provided medical care for military personnel wounded in action and civilians living close to the frontline and some distance from civilian medical facilities. Medical treatment was provided in the conflict areas of Novska, East Slavonia, and Posavlje during the 1991–1992 conflict and in 1995 during the Flash and Storm military actions. The MCU was structured as a mobile surgical unit for primary surgical management with an inpatient clinic and complete surgical and resuscitation facilities.
