    General CommentThe lyrics are apparently from a manual for the AK-47.

    General CommentThe AK-47 is the most numerous gun in the world.
    "Destroy Personnel" is a technical manual's way of saying "killing people", and I think the feeling of detachment from the act of killing is felt there in the song.
    We concentrate on the tech-spec of the weapon, it's Specified rate of fire, the Length of sighting line, the colour of the bullets (Finland Red, Egypt White ), rather than it's intended purpose of "Destroying Personnel"

    General CommentFinland uses a modified version of AK-74. AK 47 is a renewed version of the classic AK-74. Finnish army still uses this today. I don't remember the bullets being red tho.
