I agree with md's comment about Kulikov. Your goal should be getting production cheaper. With AP, you will pay full value for his services. So you bang for the buck will be diminished. On the other hand, Kulikov can be bought much cheaper and if he develops as expected, your bang for the buck will be very good.
