The AK-47 is one of the most important symbols of Russia. The unique construction of its cartridge is the key to its success. Vladimir Fyodorov, a general in the Russian Imperial Army and brilliant armorer, invented the first Russian assault rifle in 1905. During WWII, a small number of the weapons were tested during combat against the Austrians. The enemy was driven into a headlong retreat. After the Revolution, Fyodorov, being a dutiful patriot, never abandoned Russia. The legendary gunsmith spent his whole life engaged in top secret work to maintain his countrys defence capability.
