The PPS-43 was designed in 1942 during the Siege of Leningrad when the city was surrounded by nazi troops. It only took two weeks to get it from the drawing board into production for use by the Soviet resistance fighters. Remarkably, it stayed in production in the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact and China until 1968. PPS is an abbreviation for 'Pistolyet Poolemyot Sudayeva', or in other words Sudayev's machine gun. It is a very reliable design and they function excellently in very wet conditions.
