    Que?


    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.

    Made in Russia, written in English? And from the 60's era? Very Strange.

    Not nearly that old sadly, it was first used by Russia military in 1988. Looked old because of it's length, but as it turns out that is because of specialised optics. On the bright side, now I really need a Druganov.

    It is still kind of odd that it would say Made In Russia, in English, unless it was intended as an export to some English speaking country.

    Lol, I thought the only thing the Russians ever exported semi-successfully was their ideology!!! But of course exporting weapons and military equipment would indeed be needed for the accompanying revolution of countries who imported Russian Ideals. Its kind of a good business model if you think about it. One export creates demand for the other.

    Grain. Lots of it. So much so that withholding its exports severly affects world prices.

    Is that legal in your neck of the woods? I love mine.

    Yeah that's legal, but running around with Russian military gear might force me to make a call at Hotel Barsight to get someone to explain that to my hosts.
