Defence Web on 21st September carried an article about the Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) 2018 and a little stand for Jotov & Son Ltd, a Bulgarian arms dealer, offering second-hand Bulgarian arms.  A regional manager is quoted as saying that the equipment might be pre-owned – in this case by the Bulgarian military – but it’s all battle proven, much of it in African conflicts, especially Angola in the 1980s, and thoroughly reconditioned.  Africa is Jotov & Son’s key market.  The company was established under licence by the Bulgarian government in 1991 in the thaw of the Cold War and the unbundling of the erstwhile Warsaw Pact. It is said to be involved in 2 African countries; Uganda and another he prefers not to name.
