Weapon Background[edit]

The PPSh-41 (pistolet-pulemyot Shpagina; Russian: Пистолет-пулемёт Шпагина; "Shpagin machine pistol"); is a Soviet submachine gun designed by Georgi Shpagin as a cheap, reliable, and simplified alternative to the PPD-40. Common nicknames are "pe-pe-sha" from its three-letter prefix and "papasha" (Russian: папаша), meaning "daddy". The impetus for the development of the PPSh came partly from the Winter War against Finland, where the Finnish Army employed the Suomi KP/-31 submachine gun as a highly effective tool for close-quarter fighting in forests and built-up urban areas. A submachine gun, the PPD-40, was subsequently rushed into mass production in 1940, but it was expensive to manufacture, both in terms of materials and labor, because it used numerous milled metal parts, particularly its receiver. Shpagin's main idea for cost reduction was to use metal stamping for the production of most parts; that concept was revolutionary in the Soviet Union at the time. Shpagin created a prototype PPSh in September 1940, which also featured a simple gas compensator designed to prevent the muzzle from rising during bursts; this improved shot grouping by about 70% relative to the PPD.[1]

Trivia

  • During WWII, the Soviet Union designed a Generation 0(Gen 0) night vision device to be mounted on the PPSh-41. In order for the device to work, the target needed to be exposed by a separate IR Illuminator. It should be noted that this was the first Soviet night vision device ever made for an infantry weapon and was preceded by a prototype for tank driver use.[2]
  • The walls of early version 71-round drum magazines for the PPSh-41 were only 0.5mm thick, thus making them very vulnerable to damage and subsequent malfunction. Because of this issue, many soldiers during the war preferred 35-round stick magazines because of their reliability.
    • Also, PPSh-41 drum magazines were hand-fitted. If the magazine's serial number did not match the weapon's, there was a decent chance the magazine would fail to feed or just not fit into the gun.
  • Soviet engineers experimented with fitting 88 PPSh-41s loaded with incendiary P-41 rounds in the bomb bay of a Tu-2 bomber; this bomber was designated Tu-2Sh. The PPSh-41 battery itself was intended for anti-infantry use. Though fascinating on paper, the Tu-2Sh failed to gain traction, as the plane would have had to be flown abnormally low in order for the PPSh battery to be effective, making it an easy target for enemy AA. Furthermore, reloading 88 submachine guns is wildly impractical and malfunctions were likely to occur. [3]
  • During WWII, German forces looted PPSh-41s from Soviets and re-chambered the weapons for 9mm Luger. The official German designation for this weapon is MP 41(r).
    • Also, some captured PPSh-41s were not converted for 9mm, but were still used by German Forces under the designation MP 717(r). The non-converted weapons were useable because the PPSh, chambered for 7.62x25 Tokarev, can be loaded with 7.63x25mm Mauser and still perform well. See HG TokarevThumb button.pngTokarev  trivia section for ammo substitution.
  • Jokingly blamed by the community for server problems due to a fan comic featuring her destroying the server rooms in an accident.
  • Seems to be bothered by her weight (the PPSh-41 weighs around 5.45kg/12lbs fully loaded, heavier than many full-powered rifles).
  • PPSh-41 controls the robot when upgrading the dormitory.
  • Is the older sister of SMG PPS-43Thumb button.pngPPS-43 .
