Greater Kaohsiung’s 205th Armory is said to be producing firearms for the US as a mean
of diplomacy, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.
The 205th Armory specializes in producing small arms, ammunition, and powder arms. They not only provided 500 million 5.56mm and 7.62mm bullets for US troops during the Iraq War but also began producing rifle bullets in 2006. Besides these three bullets producing lines, they also have three brass shell producing lines, three bullet assembly lines, and a packing line.
At the moment, 100 million bullets are the most they produce annually after American troops left Iraq. The company also assembles rifles with materials shipped over from the US. [FULL STORY]
