the 17-13 pack

As you might suspect, the name given this pack by the manufacturer is something of a code:

P stands for Professional (well-drilled troops, as opposed to militia or less-trained regulars).

FN/SLR indicates the weapon carried. (We're not familiar with the FN/SLR per se, but the manufacturer tells us "the rifles are the FN belgian type ones," and the weapon closely resembles the Belgian FN-FAL automatic rifle, a popular gun formerly used by many NATO members.)

Hat tells us that these figures are wearing hats (bush hats) rather than helmets or berets.
