F2000 pictures were from trial, new assaulr rifle has not been chosen yet. Main assault rifles are still M70A and M70AB2.
AW-F was only in trial, Hecate rifles were chosen.
Missing here is sniper rifle Zastav M76 (7,92x57)
Army also has some FN MAG machine guns used on helicopters and BOV-VP APCs, it will also purchase more as well as minimi-para.
Armbrusts were taken out of service (provably also sold off), for anti tank defens infantry uses Zolja and Osa rocket launchers.

Why would you call zastava m99 absolete it is fairly new weapon and it is based after sig p226 one of the best handguns around with minor improvments.In my opinion it's not worse than beretta m92f.

Because it is no longer issued or on the way out. It is obsolete to Slovenian requirements.

I think there is misunderstanding here. CZ(Crvena Zastava) 99 was never used in Slovenia except by private users. However CZ(Ceska Zbrojevka) 75-85 were ordered for slovenian police years ago but order was suddenly changed to Beretta 92. Despite that few found their way into use and were finaly replaced when new batch of berettas was bought few years ago.

Hm. I have that bit of info from here (http://ispec.specwarnet.net/slovenia/se.html), although obviously they could be wrong . . .

You are right! CZ 99 is a great gun! Personally I think it's better than Beretta 92.

CZ-99 newer versions, like the CZ-999 & the CZ-999 Scorpion are very solid handguns, even for Slovenian standards.
Ceska Zbrojevka CZ-75 is also a great handgun, no matter how old it is.
