| For example
Mitraliera inventata de Mihail Kalasnikov in 1943 n-are nici o legatura cu Ak-47 de azi
Messerschmidt 262 - primul avion de vanatoare cu reactie a constituit un prim pas catre avioanele moderne de lupta - laolalta cu principala sa arma - racheta aer-aer. Specialistul in rachete al lui Hitler,

| guys!!! i don't understand why you think that a non higheducation russian sergent culd copy agerman weapon...

factory assembly lines for messerschmidt bf 109, with their concrete postament!!!!
...i know this becouse i heard this from the people that worked there and lived trought those times...
i simply don't understand why you are saying that russian copyied...

indeed. according to a special issue of the german wapons magazine "Visier" (25/2002) which i accidentally bought 5 years ago, the '43 invention was rejected from serial production (although the author was credited for the innovations), as the weapon would not offer any significant advantage over the existing PPsh 41 and PPS 43, so they decided it's not worth the hassle.
and it wasn't Kalashnikovs only model that would be rejected.
the magazine also states, that despite some similarities, the concepts behind the AK47 and StG 44 are so different, it is obvious that the AK47 is not a rip-off.
