Relevant contents

[Myanmar] now manufactures a range of its own small arms for use by its military, the Tatmadew.

Myanmar is believed to be near self-sufficient in small calibre ammunition and also produces some of its own ordnance and light weapons.

While mass production of small arms is underway, there is no evidence that the regime has exported either arms or ammunition.

Illicit arms transfers are a major problem in the areas along the Thai, Indian and Bangladeshi borders, where several rebel groups continue to resist the rule of the military government.
