The Czech Republic Ministry of Defence is on a buying binge. Well, not so much. As the Armaments Division Director Colonel Pavel Bulant put it, “Based on money available, we would buy a certain number of arms.” Can he be any more vague? No, but he can be more specific. “The package [to be delivered by 2020] would include approximately 10,000 CZ 805 Bren attack rifles, 7,000 CZ 75 Phantom pistols and 500 CZ Scorpion sub-machine guns,” army-technology.com reports. Ceska zbrojovka (CZ) introduced the CZ-805 BREN in 2009 to replace the Sa vz. 58 rifle. It’s a FN SCAR lookalike whose main claim to fame is in-the-field-friendly interchangeable barrels. No news on a civilian semi-automatic version for the U.S. market yet.
