The PPSh-41 is a Soviet submachine gun featured in Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Spearhead, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Breakthrough, and Medal of Honor: European Assault.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Spearhead and Breakthrough Edit

The PPSh-41 is a SMG deployed with the Red Army in the final level of the game. It packs a good punch, but on a historical note, the ROF is nowhere near the PPSh's real life rate of fire (900-1000 RPM), although this does help make it quite an accurate weapon. Also, the gun only holds 46 rounds, unlike the real maximum of 71 with drum magazines (as depicted in-game). Theoretically, one can load a magazine with less than the maximum it's capable of holding, in order to make the weapon lighter and in cases reduce jamming problems. In Breakthrough, however, it holds the maximum of 70 rounds.

Medal of Honor: European AssaultEdit

The PPSh-41 returns for it's 2nd and last appearance in the series in European Assault. It has changed since it's last appearance, it's magazine size has now changed to its real life capacity of 71 rounds, and it's gained it's real life ROF of 900 RPM, making it the weapon with the 2nd highest rate of fire, behind the MG42 with its fast 1,200 RPM. It is easily the best SMG in the game, as it can outcompete the MP40 at close range, and it can take down a target with ease at mid-range, though at long range, the muzzle flash will prevent the player from taking accurate shots, and may very well have to find a rifle to take enemies out. It also is, when the player has a StG 44 on hand to make a double deadly firepower.
