Namibian Marines received Russian weapons

37
The Namibian Marine Corps recently received from Russia a rather wide range of rifle weapons.


Namibian Marines received Russian weapons


12,7-mm Kord machinegun, AK-103 / 105 submachine guns, SVD-S rifles, Vityaz-SN submachine guns, Pecheneg and RPK-74M machine guns, AGS grenade launchers, etc. were among the samples received.



The Namibian Marine Corps was established at 2004, with Brazilian specialists involved in its training. In total, the MP has about 1200 people.



The main task of the Marines is to "assist in the protection of the long and mostly uninhabited coast of Namibia, as well as the protection of military naval facilities and ports."

    It would be better to supply boats with powerful engines or lightly armored boats, as smugglers and pirates take advantage of the paucity and backwardness of the Namibian coast guard, and the Namibians have had AK and their ilk since Soviet times and they will still fight.

      the fact that better weapons can be obtained from Russia now probably plays a role

        At least one kimberlite pipe was given to us for development. There is something to pay. In South Africa, diamonds and gems are very notable.

          gems and in the Urals lying around under your feet ... who needs it? mines in decline, or just shut down.

            I know. I will not discuss the topic of stones, because our emerald, for example, is not recognized by some jewelers in the world as an emerald. Roughly speaking, they prefer larger and brighter Colombian ones. As for diamond, in principle it is always in demand.

            You guys are talking about this at all. Namibia for a long time, was occupied by South Africa, and if the troops left, then multinational corporations remained. In addition to diamonds, there is also gold and uranium. Now DeBeers and the rest have dispersed and gave Russia the right to develop minerals. Russia has enough of its own. On the other hand, what kind of news? 1200 steep Namibian marines per port and 1500 km of uninhabited coast. This is 1200 submachine guns, two dozen machine guns, and the rest on the little things. The contract is nothing, I would even say a penny. But some of the members of the forum already demand from Namibia the right to develop subsoil. There is a contract for two dozen trucks with bananas.

        removed from the tongue. Although we can and on credit - at the expense of the future harvest of bananas and the opportunity to use their coast.

      And it, while the country was not - until 1988 it was "territory occupied by South Africa", in which partisan detachments (more precisely, DRG) SWAPO stuffed © on patrols, bases and cowed © South Africa, and the same small detachments of South Africa hunted for SWAPO men.
      Supported by SWAPO Angola (which provided its territory under the base), Cuba and the USSR (trained by SWAPO in the 165th CA).

            Again these stereotypes! Namibia is not Uganda with some Guinea! The program of "decanibalization" has been successfully operating in the country for several years now, and even human sacrifice has become a rarity. They already have a visa-free regime with Zimbabwe, and that says a lot! wassat

    The fact that we are selling weapons is not bad. But here is the rest of the information in the news ... Marine Corps - Namibian, small arms - Russian, specialists - Brazilian ... He also has a salad. At the same time, the number of marines is 1200 people, and the length of the coastline of Namibia is 1572 km. Less than 0,77 marines per kilometer. Border is locked tight? smile

    In Angola, Russians are still well treated, this is one of the few countries where the assistance of the USSR has not been forgotten. Moreover, ours really fought there, and they still remember in Angola. Only the Russian government scratches turnips, and does not use the opportunity to gain a foothold in southern Africa.
