The PPSh-41(Pistolet-Pulemyot Shpagina)nicknamed "Pah-Pah-sha, Shpagin and Burp Gun" submachine gun was one of the most mass produced weapons of its type of World War II. It was designed by Georgi Shpagin, as an inexpensive alternative to the PPD-40, which was expensive and time consuming to build.

It was made with metal stampings to ease production, and its chrome-lined chamber and bore helped to make the gun very low-maintenance in combat settings.
