This was already posted in the AK forum, but I don't think the Military->AK section gets as much traffic as this forum does. This was a really good article about the AK-47, and the genius behind it:

Nation & World | The AK-47 turns 60 | Seattle Times Newspaper

"It's a huge and splendid celebration," said Nikolai Shvets of Rosoboronexport. "For another 20 years, the AK-47 will remain unsurpassed by any other automatic rifle in the world."
That's a pretty broad claim, but one that I tend to believe in.

Happy birthday. :)
The Soviet T-54 MBT which the T-55 MBT is based on is 60 years old this year.
Interesting. I started out in a Wikipedia article about the T-54/55's, and wound up surfing through half a dozen articles on tank armor.

See what you've done to my spare time, Choco?
