Export of weapons from Czechoslovakia to capitalist foreign countries (1950–1960)

Traditions of the Czech, resp. of the Czechoslovak armaments industry dates back not only to the time of the first Czechoslovak Republic, but much further, to the times of Austria-Hungary. In the 1930s, Czechoslovakia was one of the ten largest arms exporters in the world, and during the Nazi occupation, the sector continued to grow and modernize. World War II did not do much damage to armaments companies in our territory, so it could boldly follow the pre-war parameters of exports.

Operation Meridian II

Due to the worsening weather, the British were able to proceed with another strike of Operation " Meridian ", a raid on the Songei Gerong refinery (" Meridian II "), until January 29, 1945. The task force, meanwhile, moved in radio silence near Sumatra and refueled from TF.69 tankers.
