Chinese Arms Transfers to Africa

The UK newspaper, The Independent, ran an article on 1 March 2016 titled "Two-thirds of African Countries Now Using Chinese Military Equipment, Report Reveals" by Ashley Cowburn. 

Drawing on a new report titled The Military Balance 2016 by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, the article states that 68 percent of countries in Africa now use some Chinese military equipment.  Increasingly China is selling more advanced equipment such as unmanned aerial vehicles to Nigeria.
