    Good weapons and are in high demand in the world, the more surprising it is to read about low salaries at Izhmash ... They produce it alone (Izhmash), and intermediaries profit (Rosoboronexport), somehow it is necessary to correct this injustice ...

    Something is written all the time only about "Izhmash", but in our country there are also Tula and Kovrov arms factories! I wonder how they are doing, and what kind of products they produce? request

    If Germans bought weapons from us or other Europeans, this would really prove the quality of our weapons, and Indonesians and the like simply take what is cheaper.

    Europe has enough of its own weapons, they don’t need anything of ours - and it’s not soon necessary with their weapons offices. So any non-European market is serious - it is not only money itself, but also advertising.

    And our "boar" was bought by Germans, Italians and French, for special forces and police. Although Europe is full of its own weapons. So lnkGrey, I disagree with you.

      "Vepr" is still not so widespread, although the fact that they are interested in it and buy in some quantities is good. But you must admit that if a similar situation were in relation to Europe with our sniper and assault rifles - it would be at least surprising - at least so far there are no prerequisites for this.

    Let them sell. This is not a strategic weapon that can be used according to us. Sincerely.

    Off-topic comments, who dreamed of legality in the Russian Federation - Serdyukov floated out (shit * about not drowning), appointed deputy. This only confirms that the laws in the Russian Federation are intended for the people (cattle), and not for the "respected": thieves, officials, embezzlers! am
    Well, who else is there against Stalin's grandfather and his methods of educating the nomenklatura who were stealing? Continue your admiration for these "Democrats" (CHIs)) am
    These operating GDP indicate that October is needed to retake RUSSIA!

      GDP is PAKHAN and created this very vertical for itself. Even it’s difficult to pick up the name. But all with criminal perfume. Without radical measures it cannot be defeated. In the meantime, we can’t defeat it about any development of speech.

    Venezuela, Indonesia ..... For some reason, our weapons are bought by countries in which there is no established production.
    The Picantini bar is certainly great, but our leadership is trying to squeeze something new out of those things that it is time to replace with more modern models.
