A Moldovan Spectrum variant which was made in a military factory. Many units, possibly up to a million, were exported to the USSR.
It resembles a ZX Spectrum
Plus, but has a noticeably inferior keyboard. Ports include an RGB socket, Kempston joystick, and Sinclair Standard Joystick. There were different versions technically as some did not have a ULA, this one does.
The machine was expandable to be 128K compatible, usually they were fitted with 512K or 1Mbyte and have the AY or YM sound chip installed.
Not many machines survive as it is said a Turkish businessman bought up many of them to strip them out for their metals.
