Soviet PPS-43 Submachine Gun - 7.62x25mm Tokarev
Chinese Type 43 Submachine Gun - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. This is virtually identical to the Soviet PPS-43 save for markings.

The Pistolet Pulemyot Sudayeva submachine gun, abbreviated PPS, was designed in response to the Red Army's call for a submachine gun that was lighter, more compact, and (most importantly) cheaper than the PPSh-41, in 1942. While prototypes were developed throughout the year, the first significant production of the PPS occurred during the Siege of Leningrad within the city itself. The initial variant, dubbed the PPS-42, saw around 45,000 units produced from 1942 to 1943. In 1943 the improved PPS-43 was developed with several major improvements, such as: a slightly shortened barrel and stock, an improved safety and stock locking mechanism, and relocation of the casing ejector. Approximately two million would be produced from 1943 to 1946. Copies were also produced on a large scale in China and Poland, and in smaller quantities throughout the Warsaw Pact. The Soviet Union phased out its PPS-43s by the 1960s, but the gun continues to see service all over the globe.

While sharing many similarities with the PPSh-41, the PPS-43 is actually a completely different weapon system, designed independently by other individuals (A.I. Sudayev and I.K. Bezruchko-Vysotsky designed the PPS, while Georgy Shpagin, notable for his work on the DShK, designed the PPSh-41.) The PPS-43 shares no significant parts with the PPSh-41, including the magazine (its 35-round magazine cannot be used in the PPSh-41, and vice versa. Additionally, drum magazines were never developed for the PPS.)

Note: The PPS-43 is commonly misidentified as the PPSh-43, which is incorrect.

The PPS-43 and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:
