Czech Republic to donate Vz. 58 assault rifles to Iraq
The Vz 58 looks a lot like an AK47, but is a significantly different rifle.
The Czech government announced on 25 January that it would donate 3,000 new and 3,600 surplus Ceská zbrojovka Model 58 (Vz. 58) assault rifles to Iraq's central and Kurdish governments, along with 7.2 million rounds of ammunition.
