Amazing Facts

AK-47 "Kalashnikov"




No movie ever does without them. Yep, these assault rifles are
the pride of Soviet army, and probably the best-known brand our
country has managed to create. Many people consider it a "super
weapon" that has no peers. Well, that's not quite true.


"Kalashnikov" was originally created in 1947, and has since been
in use. In fact, there are more copies made of this rifle than of
all other assault rifles in the world COMBINED!



This weapon is reliable and cheap, but it's crude and frankly -
outdated. These days, it's being replaced with more reliable guns
like "Nikonov" and "PP-2000". The only reason Russia still uses it
is the price of retrofitting.
