Kalashnikov Arms Corp Formed From Merger Of Izhmekh and Izhmash

Fans of the Kalashnikov weapons platform might be interested to know that Mikhail Kalashnikov has authorized the Russian government to use his name as part of a newly-formed arms corporation. From the Russian News & Information Agency website last Sunday:

The creator of the Kalashnikov assault rifle agreed to let his name be used as a brand for a new arms corporation, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Sunday.

The new group of companies will unite the Izhmekh and the Izhmash, two prominent state-owned enterprises in the republic of Udmurtia in Volga federal district…

But the plants are flagging due to lack of clients – Izhmash went bankrupt in April – and the government is now planning to revive them by merging them together under the new brand.

RIA Novosti added that Mikhail Kalashnikov turned 93 last Saturday.

Back on February 21, I noted that Russia’s Izhevsk Machine Building Plant (Izhmash) had recently unveiled its new fifth generation Kalashnikov AK-12 assault rifle.
