The AK-47 (Officially designated as "AK") is a selective-fire rifle, developed after the second World War by Mikhail Kalashnikov, and introduced into the Red Army in 1949. It was based on the Sturmgewehr 44, the world's first assault rifle; used by Germany in World War 2. Since then, it has been superceded by the AKM, and other assault rifles in the AK-family.
This firearm is iconic, and remains widespread in the form of the succeeding AKM due to its durability, ease of use, and firepower.
