The PPS-43 is a Soviet submachine gun.
While the PPSh-41 was very successful and widely used in service, the Soviet Red Army requested a weapon for tank crews and reconnaissance units that would be more compact and cheaper to manufacture. This resulted in the PPS-42, which was improved as the PPS-43.
In Battlegroup42 the PPS-43 is the primary weapon for the late Soviet medic class, replacing the PPSh-41 that has switched to become the primary weapon of the late Soviet assault class.
