9x18mm Makarov was developed as the primary pistol round for the Soviet military, and is still used by government agencies in Eastern Europe today. The round was selected due to its ballistic performance and affordability, but also because it is incompatible with 9mm NATO weapons, and thus could not be used by NATO troops in case of a large scale war.
