CZ, Brno and Zastava confusion

I spoke with CZ-USA and the current corporate structure is this:

CZUB (Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod) owns Brno Rifles which bought the assets of Brno factory.

CZ stands for Ceska zbrojovka which means Czech arms factory. Uhersky Brod and Brno are two towns in the Czech Republic (before Czechoslovakia). Brod means ford.

There is no connection with Zastava, which is a Serbian (before Yugoslav) conglomerate which makes everything from firearms to automobiles. Zastavas exported to the United States were branded Yugos.
