AK-47, assault rifle
While the term assault rifle came from Germany in WWII (literally “storm weapon” or “storm rifle”), the quintesential “assault rifle” is the Kalashnikov automatic weapon of 1947, or AK-47. Renowned for its durability and ruggedness, it remains the staple of insurgent groups around the world. Interestingly enough, very few true (i.e. Russian-made) AK-47s exist in the United States.
