A little earlier, in October 2008 the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine said that Ukrainian "Fort" and the Israeli «IMI» will create a joint venture for the production of «TAR-21" of the various modifications
for use in the Ukrainian paramilitary units. Now «TAR-21" and its modifications releases Ukrainian "Fort" under his title of "Fort — 221." Some accessories are supplied Israeli «IMI». As you know, tool, produced Vinnitsa "Fort", without actually procured Ukrainian military units.
Associate «TAR-21" and "Fort — 221" makes no sense, because they are one and the same automatic tool, about some specific configurations in the design of the device and the machine is not clear. Despite the many advantages and knowing about the basic flaws «TAR-21", the value of guns in Israel equals one tysche bucks, there is the need for such an expensive production tools in Ukraine. Even manufactured under license, it has actually cost the world, though, and going to the Ukraine. Not counting machines "Fort-221" Israel's development, adopted at the armament machine guns "Fort-401" sniper rifle "Fort-301" and the sub-machine guns "Fort-224." It remains perplexed about the development of weapons on zabugornom licenses and not of Russian design, that are not inferior to the many features and cheaper to produce.
