The inventor of the iconic AK-47 assault rifle, Mikhail Kalashnikov has died at the age of 94."Today sad news has arrived that Mikhail Kalashnikov has died after a lengthy illness," said the statement from the press secretary of the Udmurtia administration Viktor Chulkov. Kalashnikov, who had been suffering from heart-related problems in recent years, had been in intensive care in Izhevsk - where the plant that produces the eponymous rifles is located - since November 17.

 

The AK has been used by Freedom Fighters all over the world, not least by our own Irish Republican Army.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
