The Pinkie Pie Batallion by laaseensLD The Pinkie Pie Batallion by laaseensLD
Autumn in the Baltic was cold enough, but October of 1944 for the fascist forces in Riga was hotter than the depths of hell itself, because their defensive was broken by relentless flamethrowers of the Pinkie Pie Battalion.

So finally I have finished my Christmas present for myself. (Thats me in the silly, rainbow hat) Took a bit of time since I got caught up in gaming, twas great. Again I must thank Preobrazhnets [link] for providing me with his friends face (on the left) and also helping me with a lot of reference information about the Russians in World War II, and thanks for the first paragraph of this description.

So next time I might go back to Warhammer 40,000 territory to finally re-do my Rainbow Dash drawing, because I have to keep my damn promises...So just give me your watch to not miss it when it comes out.

Also don't forget to check out my other World War II drawings.

So ? Germans used captured PPSH-41 for their outstanding reliability and hefty 71 bullets in the drum magazine. It's likely the Soviets used captured (Stg-44) MP-44. :-)

I know, I know, but I really would think that somebody would chose a PPSH 41 instead of an STG, but I guess that's all opinion.

ColonelBSacquet Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014
Well, both are really good assault guns. They just don't have the same qualities. I think the STG-44/MP-44 is way more accurate and has a better ergonomy. But even though the MP-44 is still very reliable, the PPSH-41 is even more resistant to jamming and has more than twice the number of bullets in one magazine.

So, as you said, it's all about the user's opinion. :-)

VynalDerp Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014
Indeed.
Also, wasn't there more PPSH-41s produced? So ammo would be easier to find, right?

:iconcolonelbsacquet:
ColonelBSacquet Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014

Yes, of course. Not only the total number of PPSh-41 (not to mention the PPS-43) produced is way higher than the MP-44's, but the percentage of PPSh-41 used in the Soviet forces was probably higher than the percentage of MP-44 used in the Wehrmacht.
At least partly because, Hitler not being exactly the most supportive for a project about a weapon he maybe considered redundant with what was already in use - MP-40 and later models ; plus other machine pistols, less known and used in lesser numbers, but still present in the German soldiers hands - in the German forces, the MP-44 was confined for quite a time to the state of quasi-secret prototype. The engineers responsible of this even disguised the MP-44 as Stg-44 (Stg = Sturmgewehr. Literally, “assault rifle”), or as "automatic carbine model 1944".

Now, concerning the ammo, of course, given the numbers of PPSh-41 and PPS-43 - which fired the same ammo : 7,62 x 25 mm TT, or 7,62 Tokarev - used by the Soviet soldiers, the ammo was abundant, very abundant. The problem was the actual possibility, for German soldiers, to get it from their unwilling Soviet colleagues. :-) Though I once read that, in their initial advance in Russia, the Germans were able to seize great weapons and ammo factories, along with very great quantities of 7,62 Tokarev ammo.)

 

But both weapons had their inherent qualities and flaws. The PPSh was incredibly resistant to misfire and jamming, and sported a whopping 71-bullets drum magazine, while the MP-44 was probably more accurate and had a better ergonomy. And inspired the AK-47 to Mikhaïl Kalashnikov.

I knew almost all of that except for the fact that the MP-44 inspired the AK-47.
That is probably the most interesting thing I have learned today XD.

Not to be nit picky, but the STG 40( which is in the soldiers hands) wasn't implemented by the soviets, it's a German made assault rifle...I'm not complaining about historical accuracy, he could of picked it up from a dead German, but it would be more patriotic if he carried a ppsh-41

Well, they could have gotten their hands on the STG from dead germen soldiers.

Also, since the germens used Russian's weapons, why not the Russians use germens weapons?

Now I'm not sure: were those supposed to be KV-1 tanks that look slightly off due to the angle and lack of overhang on the back of the turret (data3.primeportal.net/tanks/dm…, or are they KV-1S tanks with 122mm U-11 (even thought they were never produced ).

Or am I just over complicating things and you just wanted to draw some armour that looked Russian and didn't have a tank design in mind.

Yes, those are KV-8s, which is essentially KV-1s with a flamethrower. As opposed to most flamethrower tanks, this was an additional weapon, and didn't replace the regular coaxial machine gun. However, the standard 76mm gun was replaced with a 45mm gun to make room
