RPS-001 nodify from VZ-58 to 5.56,made by RungPaiSarn company.made prototype unknow number,RPS-001 and RPS-001S for short bareel,new flash hider call RPS and use US M-7 bayonet!company made under ministry of defense,but company close by political game!
In 1986-1987.Czechoslovakia win deal a lot of 5.56 bullets for Thai,China lost.I think Czechoslovakia send VZ-58 to Thai for this gift.
Was that a f***ing INSAS?! Had Thailand really that desperate, considering that North Korean MBT and now this! The answer is no, this isn't an INSAS, this is the Rung Paisarn industry RPS-001 Assault Rifle. Indigenously developed in Thailand. This's its story Back in the 1990s, the Royal Thai...
Iraqi soldiers stand guard at Al-Qayyarah air base in March 2020 armed with Czechoslovakian Vz.58P rifles. *These were imported in 2004/2005 timeframe from the Czech Republic.
NOTE: Iraq did not field the Vz series weapons under Saddam.
I have seen only seen one photo (taken in the early-mid1980's) in which an Iraqi soldier is holding a Vz-58V. My guess, that it was shipped inside an OT-64 armored personnel carrier or OT-65 armored reconnaissance 'car' from Czechoslovakia.
