If you were following along I mentioned on post#7 that not having the AK47 would not effect a organized Army. (that was my point) The AK47/AKM was very effective in the 3rd world. (my other point) no need to overthink think this.
There is really very little difference in the ability of an operator to use a military firearm. Whether a AK, M16, Galil etc. Simplicity and ease of use is commmon in light weapons from virtually all countries.
The supply source, cost and support by the Soviet Union and other communist countries was the driving force.
Pretty simple history of the proliferation of the firearm.
