Russian anti-tank riflemen take position in the ruins of Stalingrad. The PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle delivered a ferocious kick to the firer.

After the German Army captured large numbers of the PPSh-41s, a program was instituted to convert the weapon to the standard German submachine gun cartridge - 9mm Parabellum. The Wehrmacht officially adopted the converted PPSh-41 as the MP41(r).
