The Soviet-made PPS-43 submachine gun was developed by the Soviet Union during World War II, with simple and reliable features. The editor will briefly introduce the parameters, advantages and disadvantages, equipment and usage of the PPS-43 submachine gun.
The length of the PPS-43 barrel is about 25 cm, the total length is about 82.6 cm, the weight is about 3.8 kg, the magazine capacity is 35 rounds, and it uses 7.62×25 mm Tokarev caliber ammunition. The PPS-43 adopts a simple Buljanov short-stroke recoil operating system, which has excellent reliability and durability and can work normally even in harsh environments.
The submachine gun has a high rate of fire for bursts and low recoil, allowing the shooter to control the gun better. The PPS-43 is relatively cheap to manufacture and can be produced quickly, making mass production and distribution possible. The PPS-43 is suitable for a variety of combat environments, including urban combat and close combat.
Due to the short barrel and the characteristics of the submachine gun, the PPS-43 has certain limitations in range and accuracy and is unsuitable for long-range shooting. Compared with some modern submachine guns, the PPS-43 is heavier and larger in size, and it is relatively inconvenient to carry and control.
PPS-43 is widely used in the armed forces of the Soviet army and other friendly countries, becoming their standard submachine gun. It was used extensively in conflicts during and after World War II, particularly excelling in urban combat and close-quarters combat. In addition, the PPS-43 is also used by guerrillas in some non-allied countries.
The PPS-43 submachine gun is famous for its simplicity, reliability, fast rate of fire and adaptability to various conditions. Despite some limitations in its accuracy and size, it played an important role in close-quarters combat and urban combat, becoming one of the key weapons in submachine guns during and after World War II.
