Ran across this that I bookmarked to read soon, it's pretty interesting

Interesting stuff. The 50/50 split of Cugir in 2004 may partially explain why Century decided to stop importing SARs. I'll bet they faced a whole new Romanian management team after that happened.

Nice link-

I like this part, describing arms production in the former Yugoslavia:


Reports had claimed that NATO’s bombing campaign in the spring of
1999 destroyed or damaged most production and R&D facilities of the defence sector. After the fall of
Milosevic, when information became more easily available, it became evident that this information was
inaccurate. Indeed, despite serious damages, all military-related companies were operational by 2001
and the sector still employed about 20,000 people



Remember all the BS they fed us during that campaign? I wonder where the wreckage of that Stealth the Serbs shot down ended up?
