A TRIBUTE TO KALASHNIKOV (1947 - 2017) PART 2
At the and of Cold War and after the breakup of Soviet Union, mass production of AK-47 became rampantly uncontrolled without any license. Soon the AK can be obtained easily by evil doers and transformed into icon of terror in the West. They used to be spotted on the hands of terrorists, hitmen, pirates, bandits, freedom fighters, and even mujahideen. In Afghanistan, Taliban fighters with AKs made the US feel outgunned again. Continue to Iraq War and many various armed conflicts, the Kalashnikov made appearances on hands of freedom fighters, including Palestinian little mujahideen defending their lost holy land.
The AK also appeared prominently in many video games. Most notably in Counter Strike series, designated as CV-47 in earlier series. In Call of Duty Black Ops, you can encounter several AK-47(U)s with variety of attachments.
Sadly Mikhail Kalashnikov passed away 4 years ago. He did not recieve any profit fron the rifle production around the world, despite deeply regretted for making his invention used by terrorists. He would rather invent an agricultural machine instead.
The AK-47, it is simple, reliable, cheap, abundant and high-damage. So simple, even children can operate it. One of the glorious masterpiece of Soviet engineering. Stoppages are very rare, can be fixed with bare hands. No need to add some tactical accessories. Just make it plain wood-furnished rifle with mere iron sights and ready for battle.
This year, the Kalashnikov celebrated 70 years of reliable service, 1947 - 2017. Long live the AK!
