Online Victor Power of Thought

“The Power of Thought” is an online quiz about gunsmiths and not only.

The history of weapons production is inseparable from the history of Russia, for the good of which many generations of Izhevsk masters honestly and conscientiously worked.

For several centuries, Russian gunsmiths regularly carry the sovereign service, performing an honorary and responsible mission – the creation of weapons to protect the homeland. With weapons made by the hands of our ancestors, Russian soldiers plunged the great army of Napoleon to dust, heroically defended Sevastopol, liberated the fraternal Bulgarian people from the Ottoman yoke, fought in the trenches of the First World War, defended the freedom and independence of our homeland in the battles of the Great Patriotic War. Weapons will be necessary as long as there is such an institution of human society as the state. For more than one decade, Russian weapons will serve the cause of Russian protection. So, new generations of gunsmiths will come.

In the XX century, the figure of an inventor engineer comes to the fore. And our country never experienced a shortage of brilliant designers.

Do you know which weapons were the first to produce at the Izhevsk arms factory? Or was S. Mosin focused on samples of what foreign gunsmiths when creating his three -line? And who was the developer of the first Russian machine gun? On the creation of what weapons G. Shpagin and V. Degtyarev worked together? And who gave an assessment of the first weapons of M. T. Kalashnikov?

We suggest you test your knowledge of the history of Russian weapons production.
