The Slovenian National Police Force’s tactical police unit is known as Specialna Enota Policije (SEP), which translates as “Special Police Unit.” The SEP is used to carry out counterterrorism operations and other risky jobs that are too dangerous or challenging for the ordinary police force. They’re known as the “Red Panthers” and can be seen here using the Heckler & Koch HK416A5, G28 and G28 Patrol. Further down you will also see the rather peculiar FN F2000S.
In reaction to the hostage situation at the Munich Summer Olympics in 1972 and the armed terrorist groups’ invasion of Yugoslavian territory that same year, the first unit was established in 1973.
Here is the FN F2000 made by FN Herstal. It would be interesting to hear their take on it versus the H&K HK416, and the endless battle between bullpups and more normal-looking firearms.
