The PpS was mostly used in the seige of Lenningrad. The defenders of the city didnt have access to arms outside the city, and produced this gun (which was designed before the seige) using simple dies and molds in the city's factories. Each could be made in less than 3 hours, and were sent immediately out to the frontlines.

The cooling vent holes on the barrel housing are a giveaway, but other then that it does look somewhat similar... aside from the bannana "Box Magazine" and the length, the sights, the grip, the trigger guard... It's the same color at least. :)

Killor:

At the end of the war (Berlin for example) Komissars and officers stuck with their old PPShs while the lower grunts used the PPS-43.

On a side note, anyone know much about the PPD41?

Are those cooling ports or just a metal shield to keep the barrel from getting dinged up? I've heard both.

OhioanYeah, it was made out of stamped metal much like all the late war SMGs. It was more common on the Eastern Front then the PPsH41 by the end of the war. 35 rnd clip would prevent the PPsH whorage that happens now.

There were 500,000 PPS 43s made and 5 million PPsh 41s explain to me how it was more common.

At least leave the option open, so that on city maps where the only way to balance is to replace the PPSH, or for BFE which could use something that is balanced, the PPS is an option. We shouldn't forget an important weapon in history.

Not to mention that it was made so that it could be used by tank crews so if the tank kit were ever made (God forbid) the tank crews wouldn't have to be completely defencless.
