Kalashnikov resumes construction of factories in Venezuela

28
After an almost 2-year break, Russia resumes construction in Venezuela of the AK-103 licensed assembly plant and its ammunition, the resource reports All4shooters.com.




According to the portal, “in July 2006, a contract was signed for the construction of a plant in Maracay, Aragua, on the territory of the Venezuelan state-owned company CAVIM (Compania Anonima Venezolana de Industrias Militares), two factories: ammunition and weapons, capable of producing up to 70 millions of cartridges and to 25 000 automata annually. "

The project was given special importance, because The company was supposed to be “the first factory in the world where the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles is conducted under an official Russian license.”

When construction was completed by about 70%, a scandal broke out - large-scale financial frauds came to light. Construction was frozen. The manager and a number of other executives of the contractor’s company (Stroyinvestinginering SU-848 LLC) were arrested on charges of fraud.

This year, it was decided to complete the factories with the involvement of another contracting organization. Completion is scheduled for next year.

“New enterprises will occupy an area of ​​60 hectares and create additional 800 jobs,” the newspaper notes. “In addition to the AK-103 assault rifles, it was also planned to produce a Catatumbo sniper rifle, which is a Venezuelan development of its own, at the new weapons factory.”

As the deputy head of Rosoboronexport, Sergey Ladygin, declared at the FIDAE 2016 exhibition in Chile, the project is “taken under control at the highest state level”, which is a guarantee of its successful completion.

      Good for everyone. No matter how much the mattress covers howl with their bundles, it is far from Kalash.

      Such a strategic enterprise requires serious protection and cover!
      Especially from Korean missiles and the Colombian mafia!
      It is necessary to settle the marines and turtles with "Shells", "Triumphantly" cover and plant the area with "Topols"!
      And there will be such a plant with a "forest-park" zone!
      (JOKE! wink )

    Yeah, not aging, slightly "lifted" Kalashnikov, and now gives odds to modern weapons. Indeed the legendary automaton with a capital letter.

    You need to build a very large plant. Latin and America is big. It is necessary that everyone would have enough.

      Then in Mexico such a plant would not hurt! Closer to the goal and the last "consumer"!

    I see no reason for delight.
    How did financial fraud become possible? Nobody controls such projects?
    It’s clear with the contractor. And have those who committed theft been arrested?

    With the production of our machines in Venezuela, we are moving towards the former "hegemons" in their "underbelly". The start has been made.

      This is Hugo Chavez, the former president of Venezuela, died 3 years ago. He was a good man and president, he loved his people and as much as he could from the mattresses. Land to rest in peace.

    I wonder how the client will pay? And will it be? The economy has merged into a funnel there. Power is reeling. The late Chávez somehow kept up with oil revenues and personal charisma, while Maduro had neither. Anyway, this former bus driver is not much better than "any cook" allowed to drive the state. Well, or a Stavropol combine operator - what am I talking about, even a Stavropol combine operator next to this Venezuelan carrier, a giant of thought.
    And the next regime may well say that they don't need a plant, and finally get it from Chavez.

        Indeed, Venezuela and Cuba, two representatives of the Global Predictor in the American direction. In these countries, all the tasks set will be solved, despite the attempt to disrupt the construction by theft and abuse.

        As the late emperor Alexander the Third said, Russia has only two allies - the army and navy. Venezuela seems to be neither the one nor the other, and its newly elected parliament is not painfully pro-Russian, but as it were, not vice versa.

        tangerines-kiwi-tomatoes are calculated
        Chavez killed Venezuela's agriculture as an industry. When he first came to power, with oil over a hundred per barrel, and there were at least heaps of petrodollars in the treasury, in order to appease the poor and lower food prices, he imported all kinds of agricultural products and began to sell at such bargain prices that he killed the domestic producer. So there is no longer any commercial production of tangerines-kiwi-tomatoes. From the word "absolutely". And the owners eat the household crops themselves, because now in Venezuela with food as at the end of the existence of the USSR, if not worse.

        oil again ..
        The oil there is heavy and sulphurous. Therefore, they can only sell practically in the USA, where oil refineries have been used for such oil for a very long time, much before Chavez. And then, before selling it, they have to dilute it with Texas Light oil, otherwise no pumps can pump such a resin. The late Chavez once offered this oil to China, and the Chinese figured and politely refused, they do not have the technology to process such oil without damaging themselves. So Venezuelan oil still goes through Citgo (in which Venezuela holds a majority stake) to American gas stations. By the way, gasoline, it seems they are fueling it with something, so I don’t refuel with them, although they are relatively cheap.
        And I’m not afraid of the minuses, and I’m not writing for the sake of pluses, and therefore I use the luxury of telling the truth, even if it’s not for anyone.

      And you probably did a blood test? And the skull must have been measured with compasses so that it meets racial standards, as your spiritual grandfather Adolf taught.

      It’s worth a leash by the edge, to mention about the Semites, the Russophobic howl rises immediately to heaven. Standard word sets are used, such as compasses, adolf, blood tests, racial standards. How monotonous, uninteresting and wretched is this Russophobic shobla. By the way, the Arabs are the most that you eat Sims, because the descendants of Shem. Jews mercilessly destroy them and in every possible way infringe. So who is the most ardent anti-Semite?

    There are more than enough people willing. Where will the "Kalash" from Venisuela emerge tomorrow?
    When the plant started, the country rested on the authority and charm of Chavez, and now it’s hard to say how everything will unfold (the US ones are not asleep). After reporting the death of Chavez, Venezuelan authorities declared a seven-day mourning, which was then extended until March 15. Mourning of various durations was declared in 15 countries:
    Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Argentina, Belarus, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Iran, SADR, Suriname.
    We look and think ...

    The decision has been made and should be implemented. The world's first plant licensed by Kalashnikov is an important, living example. Maybe others will also want to work under license. Jobs and profits is by itself.
