Dear visitors,
Welcome to the renewed website of the Slovenian Armed Forces.


I am pleased that on the occasion marking 30 years since the beginning of military service in Slovene language in Slovenia, and on the eve of the Slovenian Armed Forces Day, we are providing the public with easier and more transparent access to all information about our, Slovenian Armed Forces.

I am certain that the published contents will provide a lot of interesting facts about us, our work and tasks. I also allow for the possibility, however, that in places, we might have expressed ourselves poorly or awkwardly. Since, I believe that we can only be stronger if unified and united, I invite you to address constructive suggestions for the improvement of our contents to our Public Affairs Department (

For us, members of the Slovenian Armed Forces, I can say that we win. Not because we are the best, the greatest, and have the best equipment, but because we never give up in our endeavours to be better. Thank you for supporting us in this.
