Was the MP40 really that lame of a weapon compared to the PPSH? If so, fine, but it "seems" to me that the disparity between these two is a bit excessive. I never thought that the MP40 was a piece of junk, but it sure seems to be when compared to the PPSH.

Any firearm nuts have some meaningful info on this?

MP40 isn't bad, in FH I can kill with little or no problem, and in real life it wasn't bad at all, it's just that the PPSH was a lot better.

The MP40 had a cyclic rate of 500 rounds/minute while the PPSch-41 had a rate of 900 rpm. This does not mean that the MP40 was a bad smg, however the PPSch was better. //A_Rude_Gesture

Correct, there are many chases of them throwing away MP40s for the PPsH but I have never heard of them being rechambered.

I heard more often that not in certain battles because of the problem in german supply lines they used the PPSH's 7mm because it was more common than German 9mm.

How about on Eastern European maps have a pickupable kit in german main bases that ha an MP 717(r) (which was the German designation for PPsh 41s) The character would keep his German helmet however.

the PPSh 41 was better than the MP40 in the following aspects: ROF, Magazine capacity. however it was not as good in the following: Stopping power and accuracy. they were about as reliable when it comes to jamming.
