Here are a couple of pages dedicated to wars during the 90s in former Yugoslavia, mostly from Bosnia (Republic of Srpska), but also Serbian held territories in Croatia (Republic of Srpska Krajina). It is all in Serbian, so use Google Translate cautiously.

There were some M84 used, as Frenchy already posted. T72 was in limited numbers - IIRC it was used by Guards brigade of Yugoslav People’s Army (probably in Vukovar in Croatia in 1991), but i remember a T72 in postwar Banja Luka (Bosnia), which lead me to believe that it was used during the war.
Other interesting vehicles (appart from converted ones from the links), were vintage WW2 and cold war vehicles - M18 and M36 tank destroyers, T34/85, M47 Patton (limited use), M8 Greyhound…
