    When Bereta buys 49% of Zastava but since that info is only in serbian not in english there is no reason for anyone to belive me there is no proof for what I say.

    I noticed where Serbia has posted new videos of their military in 2018. It appears Serbia may have purchased a few FN SCAR L 5.56 rifles. Curious if the FN SCAR L will be for special operations (special Brigade 1500) or Elite troops. Some of the video still showed the AK variant with quick change barrel for 7.62x39 and 6.5 Grendel (6.5x39). Any word if Serbia has abandoned the 6.5 Grendel AK. Any info would be appreciated Batob.

    Even old Yugoslavia purchased foreign rifles for JNA and police SF back in the times... Now Serbia bought not only scar but also sig516 and they had a lot of other foreign rifles. It means nothing. I have no idea what "elite troops" are for u. Serbia did not abandoned M17 rifle. There is alot of informations but I already said why I will not write... I was not even on this forum for some time. But ok since I am here look at video on this link it is from yesterday.

    And for translations just ask moderators to provide some other member who can speak serbian I know they are few around.

    Thank you Batob for responding to this thread. I understand why you don’t visit this forum often but I do appreciate you posting the link to this video. When I mentioned elite troops I meant military units like the US Army Delta Force, US Army Rangers, Green Beret, Navy Seal teams or British/UK Special Air Services, SAS.

    Great video, thanks again for posting.

    Maybe I should troll my own thread...
    In your list of elite troops you can add any other sf unit including serbian and this is how I see them comparing to true "elite" -

    2018_11_10_22.23.46.png

    For example, probably our best sf unit in war in 1999 was called jso. But very few people know that jso reserve unit was the toughest. They were all serbian veterans from bosnian war few houndred of tough crazy guys who didnt give a fuck about anything. It was very complicated to command them and most of the stories nobody would believe anyway... Like when they were bored they started to use only knives so command ordered to take the knives from them and than they found them sharpening nail clips... Or when u want them to attack fast u tell them "there are american instructors and sf on that hill". Never mind that few 1000 soldiers were attacking for days without succes few 100 of them took that hill in few hours. Difference between serbian sf units and most of the others is that we never actually had discontinuety in warrior tradition. It is hard to explain... Just imagine for ex, english defeated Washington but rangers continued to fight for another 100 year than how would modern rangers be created or how would they look like today. Balkan is a strange place and Serbs gave a lot to world military tradition but it is mostly not recognised nor understood. But never mind... It is like one rule for us and another for everybody else. Actualy, zastava workers were joking and asking when MoD bought 2000 scars for army are they going to test them in institute like M17. And answer was like Cmon we both know scar is not for that. ln my opinion they will have very soon M17 with scar and other rifles in some sf units and after experienceand modernisations they will start to introduce M17 to all army.

    Thanks for your response Batob! Very interesting and I've heard stories from a close Friend who served as a Law Enforcement liason in Bosnia after the war. My Friend was a Police Officer and retired Major from the US Army and was contracted to go to Bosnia for about two years.

    I think the M-17 looks like a good rifle and is a good blend of AK and some western semi auto rifle features. I just really like the 6.5 Grendel cartridge which is a very versatile intermediate power cartridge. I've seen some information on some of the ammunition Prvi Partizan is developing and would be interested to know what style of bullet the Serbs adopt.

    The pictures I've seen from Martenegro makes the region look like a beautiful part of the world.

    As another forum member stated, Zastava has a new American distributor called Zastava Arms USA. They will be selling a Dragunov style rifle in the US along with other rifles.
