Прощай, Михаил Калашников

That is, farewell, Mikhail Kalashnikov. A living legend, he passed away today at the age of 94. Inventor of the famed AK-47, its variants (such as the RPK), and its successors, Lieutenant General Kalashnikov's designs have been produced around the globe. He'll live on through the millions upon millions of rifles that bear his name, past, present, and future. Rest in peace, comrade.

Kalashnikov and his progeny. The world will never be the same.

  1. Too bad John Moses Browning was a Mormon, else he'd be trading vodka shots with Mikhail Timofeyevich.
