Serbian Army Equiped with Heckler & Koch HK416?

2 03 2011

This picture above is of a Serbian Armed Forces member on UN Mission in Chad firing what may his newly issued Heckler & Koch HK416.

Recently during the Serbian Armed Forces celebration Usce 2011, it caught the eye of Balkan Monitor that the HK416 may be Serbia’s newest battle rifle along with the 5.55mm (NATO) chambred Zastava M-21.

Balkan Monitor is keeping an eye out for this possibly interesting development. Although numerous types of equipment, such as M4s and FAMAS, are abundant with the Serbian Special Forces – the HK416 is possibly the best M4 style rifle the Serbs could have chosen.

If anything both rifles are chambred in the 5.56 mm NATO round.

Other than that I’m stumped as to why the Serbian gov’t would go out and buy these rifles.

I could only guess they were donated??
