A piece of AK-47 Art, made from found wood and displayed at a graffiti site in Copenhagen

The "Kalashnikov" or AK-47 was designed and initially produced in Soviet Russia and has become an icon of the late twentieth century, and seems to last well into the twenty-first too.

Instantly distinguishable from other weapons by its curved magazine it has become a global symbol of armed rebellion and anti- imperialism, and this even with some irony to it since it also armed the Taleban rebels against the Soviet Army in Afghanistan and the Chechnyans fighting present day Russia.

Panzer Sdkfz 253
A special armoured vehicle for artillery observation. It enabled an observer to stay close to the front lines and via radio give instructions for the aiming of artillery, much needed on the fast moving and quickly changing battle fields of the early "Blitzkrieg" years.
