So the Ads that you saw used by the Salvadorians, that they captured from the FMLN guerrillas, were all Soviet origin? What were they, AKMs or AK-47s or both?i'm not going to say that you're not going to find such a picture. I will say that they rarely used AK's. the ones I worked with typically used MP5's and G3's. (they also used M-16's) the AK's they did use on occasion, were, in fact, captured from the remnants of the FMLN and other groups with communist ties. as far as the AK's I saw down there, I never saw anything that wasn't Russian. much of it was coming in from Cuba. (although, I'm not so sure Russia wasn't footing the bill.) some of it, i'm sure was also being smuggled in from Nicaragua. i'm speaking from the prospective of being there several years after the peace accords were signed. never the less, the war did continue.
the ones I remember seeing were Russian made. this was a long time ago, and I was a lot younger. I doubt if I even knew the difference between an AKM and an AK-47. like I said... most Salvadorians were using U.S. made or German made weapons. most of the AK's the Salvadorians used, were used for "dirty" work.So the Ads that you saw used by the Salvadorians, that they captured from the FMLN guerrillas, were all Soviet origin?
