Mikhail Kalashnikov the WWII Soviet tank commander who designed the AK47 assault rifle has died aged 94. With an estimated production of over 100 million, his rifle has taken on an iconic status. It's simplicity and legendary ability to endure harsh environments and mistreatment and still fire has made it standard issue for the world's guerrillas and terrorists for the last 60 years.
