In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) we’re adding a brand-new weapon to the game. The much requested Soviet submachinegun the PPS-43 or as it is known in Russian the ППС – “Пистолет-пулемёт Судаева” (Pistolet-pulemyot Sudaeva) which translates as Sudaeva’s submachinegun.

The Soviet PPS-43 unlocks on the SMG Assault Ribbon at Rank 11 as the THIRD Soviet SMG. It is a compact and light SMG with good handling and range.

In the factory configuration it has a rate of fire of 553 rpm and a reload time of 3.0 seconds. Upgrades are available once you unlock them by progressing on the “PPS-43 Specialist Ribbon”. The magazine holds 35 rounds.
