                • There was also the PPD-40 (or something similar) used mostly by NKVD. It looks almost the same a the PPSH-41

                      • Ok time to settle this once and for all:

                        PPD-40 early war SMG


                        PPSH-41 standard Soviet SMG


                        PPS-42 the Leningrad SMG

                            Looks like an Enfield no. 8 Infantry Rifle.

                              I was going to say it looked like the No. 5 Jungle Carbine, but on closer look I think Arkane nailed it. Looks like the No8 Infantry version. Good call Arkane!

                              • A footnote to the discussion on what we referred to as the PPSH-41 on the Pusan Perimeter in August '50. I know of one case where a Marine was hit with 14 rounds from that weapon from a distance of not more than 20 yards. Most of those rounds hit him in the chest. Amazingly, he lived several days after being wounded. The NKs were well supplied with that weapon on the Perimeter. We saw far fewer of the PPSH during the Inchon and Seoul operations in Sep '50. At the Chosin Reservoir the ChiComs had a number of PPSH, but believe it or not the layers of clothing we were wearing, at least in some cases, kept the bullet from doing anything more than leaving either a small non-penetrating wound, or a large painful bruise. I accompanied the Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Wallace Greene, in May/June '65 when he made his first visit to MGen Walt's 1stMarDiv Marines in I Corps. During our meeting with General Ky in Saigon he was presented a PPSH 41 mounted in a very well done case. The latter got a place on CMC's wall in his office at HQMC. I was the only one at the presentation who could identify the weapon....So guess I did learn at least one factoid during my time on that God-forsaken peninsula.
