        In general, Bangladesh’s GDP is 106 billion dollars. Military spending is about 5,3 billion dollars. It’s quite an average indicator. The degree of poverty of the population is not comparable with India. Could Cornets be ordered. Still Cornets are better than mestizos. But this is the choice of Bangladesh. so they get mestizos, and you have money)) By the way, you say the poor, but you paid for the order in cash, and not on credit like some or just for nothing))

    The best part is that they used to have recoilless guns of the Americans. And now ours. The victory of Russian weapons. Although small, not noticeable, in Bangladesh, but still OUR VICTORY!

    There is no real threat to us - this is good! The arms market is the largest of the markets and Russia should have a worthy place in it, if you want a hypermarket, and not like now, a roadside stall!

    Why do they need such a weapon? So that the fighters for democracy did not come to them in tanks.
