    Ножик

    I bought this Yugoslavian made Mauser a few years ago, (long before i started russian), and i saw that, on the bayonet that came with it, it had some crazy writing. Just now, i remembered the writing, and decided to take a look at it. Low and behold, it's cyrillic! with the exeption of one letter. it reads

    ПРЕДУЗЕ*Е.

    The * represents a Symbol that looks like a Ч, exept the Ч is upside down and the verticle line is crossed like a T. Somewhat like this

    | | .... but that's a very poor enterpretation of it. I know this isn't the "yugoslavian" forum, but this was about as close as it gets.

    Does anyone have any clues as to what this means ?

    There are two similar letters in Serbian alphabet:

    Ђ/ђ, which is pronounced roughly like Russian 'дзь'.

    Ћ/ћ, which is pronounced like 'чь'

    it's the bottom one, but it's written in all capitol letters. Does anybody know what this word means ? i looked for yuogoslavian/serbian translators online, and even the fact that i didn't find any doesn't matter, because i dont know how i would type the Ћ. Know any serbian/yugo freinds ?

    The guests are here because all additional language forums (beyond Russian) are open for guests. I believe this would bring more discussions while we are beta testing.

    Предузеће/Preduzeće ("The Enterprise") is (was) a major weaponry factory and arsenal.

    The Preduzeće 44 Arsenal, located in Kragujevac, Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia, was rebuilt after WW2 on the site of the old Kragujevac Arsenal, by the communists who had taken over in 1945. It was expanded during the first 5 year plan 1947-52 into a major industrial complex including a power plant, an automotive plant making motorcycles, engines, auto parts and eventually in the sixties the Yugo car, an electrical supply factory making light bulbs, appliances, generators, switchgear, and other items. In 1953, Preduzece 44 or P44 became Zavodi Crvena Zastava and was a "worker managed" (semi-private) corporation.
    Collectively known as the RED Banner Works, it was destroyed by US bombing in 1998.

    Here is some links about the weaponry produced there

    I think your rifle is mentioned there.
    За ночь под свинцовым градом,
    За то, что меня нет рядом,
    Ты прости, сестра моя, Югославия...
