German Aleksandrovich Korobov (Russian: Герман Александрович Коробов) was a Russian firearms designer who worked for Tula arms. He was known for his unusual and unique rifle designs.

HistoryEdit

Korobov was born in 1913 in Samara, Russia. After schooling in 1939, he worked at the TsKB-14 factory in Tula, where he worked until his death.

WorksEdit

Korobov was well known for creating some rather interesting firearms, such as the TKB-059, a three-barreled experimental assault rifle, and the TKB-408, a bullpup assault rifle meant to compete with the AK-47. While these weapons looked and felt rather promising, none of his weapons ever entered any form of service with the Russian Army; most, if not all, of these weapons can be now seen at the Weapons Museum at the Tula Kremlin.
