It is quite interesting to see that a country has the AK-47 Rifle on their national flag, and I believe that Mozambique is the only country to have done so. The flag of Mozambique was adopted on May 1st, 1983, but two other versions were adopted from 1975 to 1983 that also featured an AK-47.
An interesting comparative study about the features of the M16 and the Soviet AK 47 assault rifles. This video that was part of a documentary on the Discovery channel is very well made and interesting.......now I'm 100% sure of what I would use in combat.....the AK-47!
In 1956, the People's Republic of China adopted their own variation of the AK-47 assault rifle, and combat units were issued these rifles form the 50's until the 80's when it was replaced by the Type 81 and eventualy by the QBZ-95 in 1995.
