We realized that it’s more profitable for them to buy machine sets from us, assemble them and sell them to the police,” noted the general director of the military industrial complex. “It’s also beneficial for us - the difference between the finished machine and the car kit is only five percent. " The military industrial complex also has an order from the People's Republic of China for the Tigers before the end of the current year and for the 2012 year, he added, without specifying the volume of the transaction.
