Couldn't get the video to work, but really not that surprising. There's a gazillion parts, tools and raw material go into making such a beast. Odds are some bits are going to be made by western countries.

How do they get parts? dummy companies, paid middle men, route them through countries that don't care (or just don't care for the US and its sanctions....). Smuggling and illicit goods isn't rocket science.


Come to think of it, Winston has had some rather Newsbot-ish behavior recently. Are we sure he's still human?
