The Tokarev TT-33 is a Russian pistol.
The Tokarev TT-33 is the first semi-automatic pistol developed in the Soviet Union. It resembles earlier Browning designs like the Colt M1911 Automatic Pistol and various FN pistols, developing them to a simpler and extremely rugged weapon. The TT-33 also has a high muzzle velocity and thus good penetration capabilities and a very flat trajectory - thanks to its powerful 7.62x23mm cartridge. The pistol was produced in large numbers and widely used by the Red Army during the 1930s and World War 2. It was aimed to replace the ancient Nagant M1895 revolver, but both weapons remained in military service until the end of the war, the TT-33 until 1952.
In Battlegroup42 the Tokarev TT-33 is the side arm of the Russian scout, assault, rifleman and anti-tank classes on maps with scenarios from the second half of World War 2. It is also issued to the Greek rifleman class.
