He was prompted to Major General in 1975, Lieutenant General in 1982 and Colonel General in 1987. In the 1980s, he held a number of senior positions in the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA). In 1987–1989, he held the position of the Chief of the General Staff of the JNA. He retired from active military service on 31 December 1989. However, he continued to be a member of the Organization of the League of Communists in the Yugoslav People's Army.
