As well as Russia, various versions of the Kombat T98 have turned up in the Middle East, the US, China and South America.

All in all, then, a hell of a USP, and one that St Petersburg-based entrepreneur Leo Yankelovich was keen to exploit. Amongst other things, Leo has business interests in window safety film, which led him into the booming market supplying vinyl wraps for cars. A connection led him to a company called Dartz, pretty much a French Riviera-based equivalent of LA's famous West Coast Custom outfit. Dartz is co-run by Igor Daleckis, a Latvian by birth, who moved to Paris first before heading south to make his fortune in the car business.
