| ... after general Giap, another legend of communism warfare died this year: general Mikhail Kalashnikov, the inventor of a great assault rifle. He died yesterday, 23.XII.2013 |
He was a skilled "hands on" technician, but believe it or not, he used tools to create directly from his mind real components, then his wife used her technical drafting skills to create drawings based on the pieces he made.
At least this was the version of a French made documentary that was shown on Romanian TV in early 1990's.
