          Rest in peace Gennady Alekseevich, may the earth rest in peace to you. Your "Brains" will serve for the welfare and security of our Motherland for more than one decade!

          Dear editors, in an article about such a person:
          1) It should be named after the middle name -Gennady Alekseevich Denezhkin.

          2) To remove the Like / Dislike system we are talking about passing away from life and the system liked / disliked in this case is absurd, if not worse ...

          Best regards hi .

      We are not all eternal. And such legendary people, too, unfortunately.
      By the way, stubborn Svidomity rejoice. At the same time, not understanding the difference between multiple launch rocket systems and ICBMs, when creating the first samples of which some German developments were actually used.

    He served in 1971 in a division garrisoned along the Ussuri. How many legendary and enthusiastic descriptions have already been given about the work of "Grad" in the Soviet-Chinese conflict on Damansky Island. Apparently this was the first use of multiple launch rocket systems of this class in a combat situation ...

    One thing is good: the designer saw his brainchild in metal, but it’s the same as having raised his son. May he rest in peace.

    The strength of Russia is in its people, such as Denezhkin, Rakov, Yangel, Utkin, and even if their names are not well-known, but they remain the salt of the country. A generation of still Soviet designers is leaving, will we learn new names worthy of the sons of the Fatherland? Oh, I'm afraid with modern education it will be difficult for us to have a new Tupolev, Kalashnikov or Stechkin.

    Most importantly, he left a bright memory of himself and pride in himself for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    Rest in peace.
