Avtomat Kalashnikov 1947

Invented by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Quite possibly the most popular assault rifle in existence, mostly because of mass proliferation.

7.62x39mm Soviet, 30-round clip. Has countless variants. Today it is black-marketted by terrorist cells (mostly because the AK is easy to make).
The AK-47 has been reported to have certain performances that surpass that of the Colt M16 series, and one reason is because the AK doesn't contain as many moving parts (therefore, maintenance is very easy). The AK-47 can also brave any type of harsh condition and environment.

There are ALL kinds of variants to the AK-47:
*AK-74 (5.45x39mm Soviet assault rifle)
*AKS-74u (5.45x39mm Soviet carbine)
*Saiga 12 (12g auto shotgun)
*Dragunov SVD (7.62x39mm Soviet sniper/infantry-backup rifle)
These 4 are just some.

Originally developed and finalized by Mikhail Kalashnikov in the year 1947, the AK47 was meant to be a rifle for tank crews, who could not fit a full sized rifle into their tank. It was so successful that it was adopted by the Russian army, and exported to all of Russia's allies. It's most recognizable feature is its superb reliability, it will function in environments that other weapons would malfunction in. It fires 7.62 x 39mm ammunition(by comparison, an M16 fires 5.56 x 45mm).
This is the AK47 assault rifle. It is the preferred weapon of your enemy, and it makes a very distinct sound when fired at you.

A word originally referring to the world's most reliable assault rifle, but due to ignorance, is used to describe any firearm with a pistol grip and curved magazine.

The world's absolute most proliferous assault rifle, with more than 90 million units currently existing. Commonly seen as a terrorist weapon, and for good reason, as it is relatively inexpensive, and very robust, able to brave extreme weather conditions. Chambered for the Russian 7.62 x 39 mm rifle cartridge.

The famous Avtomat Klashnikova Model 1947 (AK47) is, along with it's scores of variants, the most widely used and manufacutured assault rifle in the world. Developed orginally for mobile units of the Russian Army, the AK rifles have found their way into the hands from hundreds of other militaries, as well as terrorist groups. Caliber of the orginal AK47/AKM was 7.62x39mm. The 7.62mm caliber has been phased out in Russia, which now favors the 5.45x39mm, chambered in the AK74.
In the days of the Cold War, the USSR made and distributed countless AK47 assault rifles.
