It's more under the table, plus antiques from the Soviets/China and homemade stuff.

Yes, there's a pretty big manufacturing and industrial output in DPRK. Heavy industry is obviously more important than consumer goods, but that market has been expanding, too.

I'd also add China v India as well; I think the US used to play both sides a lot more but there were consequences to that lol (iykwim). Never a good long-term strategy.

its likely the US emargo that caused this. I'm surprised that Cuba is not on this list in the same vein.

I guessed Uganda because in the movie Who Killed Captain Alex? there is a character who is a Russian mercenary fighting there.

Also if you haven't watched it, please do, it's a Ugandan action movie that's clearly the biggest labor of love there is. It's free to watch on youtube on their movie studio's channel

Russia has been supplying Egypt with arms for decades, all the way back to when they were a new state more closely aligned with the Soviets than with the USA.

I really thought Mozambique would be on the list since they have an AK-47 on their flag.

Mozambique must get their AK's second hand from Angola.
