PPSh-41 is a character from the tactical SRPG ES game Girls' Frontline and its derivatives developed by MicaTeam and published by Digital Sky.

Historical basis

The PPSh-41 was born during the Winter War, in which USSR forces attempted to gain some Finnish territory as a buffer against Germany, before having the Suomi KP/-31 sub-machine guns in the hands of Finnish soldiers become an everlasting pain in their memory. Partially due to the Great Purge wiping out many with actual capabilities, replacing them with obsolete-minded people or those with little knowledge in weaponry. Though an earlier submachine gun developed by Degtyaryov designated PPD-38/PPD-40 based on the KP/-31 existed, its effectiveness in combat was rather unsatisfying.

As the number of casualties suffered by the Soviet Army continued to rise as the war progressed, there was growing anxiety among the higher part of the Soviet chain-of-command. Stalin signed an order demanding an expedited research on a new model of submachine gun. However, the Suomi KP/-31 and the PPD submachine guns were too complicated to manufacture, which was contradictory to the need of simple, large-scale productions. The tough task of designing an easy-to-make submachine gun with a performance on par with the Suomi KP/-31 was handed to Soviet weapons designer Georgy Shpagin. He abandoned traditional method by 1940, instead using welding, riveting and stamping to produce the new model.

In September, Shpagin came up with a new model of sub-machine gun. After two months of trials and competition against the PPD, Shpagin's design was favoured and was officially adopted by the Soviet State Defense Committee (known as GKO) and was designated "PPSh-41"(Пистолет-пулемёт ШпагинаPistolet-pulemyot Shpagina, Shpagin's machine pistol). It was six months to the Great Patriotic War.

The weapon was easy to produce even to untrained workers, women and even children, with mass numbers produced issued to the Soviet Army, to an entire battalion or even divisions. German soldiers on the Eastern Front also use captured PPSh-41's, modifying it to chamber for 9mm cartridges, while even printing and distributing German manuals on how to operate captured PPSh's.

Many PPSh-41's are also sent to other socialist states as supplies, making cameos in the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

According to reports by soldiers who had taken part in the Korean War, the Papasha was too heavy to wield, therefore its magazines were replaced with 35-round ones. And this also warns commanders to have a pay a moment's thought before deciding whether or not to lift her.

An improved Papasha



Network instability compensation for 19 and 23 November, 2016

Papasha prepared 10*Procurement tokens and 500*four types of resources, consider it..(Bong!)
It's not Papasha's fault this time (Bong~), anyway...Please accept this compensation: 10*Procurement tokens, 500*four types of resources
(By Papasha in Detention Room)

Due to cases of the server breaking down when the game was still in its testing phase, some players created a comic depicting Papasha accidentally firing at the server. Which made her a life-long scapegoat.

Serverside crisis creator Papasha
(1)[Preparations before testing]
PPSh:It's going to be a happyend [sic] this time too...
(2)[Background says ''Server'']
Soldier:Comrade, about this rescue mission...
Soldier:Comrade! No!
(4)[Test ongoing]
Soldier:Yes, the server's all done for. We got a backup but this one isn't holding for long...
[arrow saying "backup"]
Pixiv ID:54949330[4]

According to the comic's creator, the reason Papasha was chosen was simply because it would be more painful to the server judging from how fast it fires.

The following
[read from right to left, up-to-down]
DAMN!Comrade Papasha isn't inside the Detention Room!
It's from gunshots, so it's within repairable margins
WHAT!? Everyone go look for her!
By the way why so fast this time?
Comrades! We got the server back online!
Shh... Don't let Comrade Papasha hear it.

And as a result, she's sent to detention. Before being eaten by FNC (NOOO!!!), and made her and FNC a good pair of partnersserver-killers.

Rarity fraud

Though with a 2-star rarity, many players complain that she's much harder to be found than a number of 3-star T-dolls, counting her as an example of rarity fraud.

Somehow granting her limited protection against immediate retirement.

Grifon-exclusive SCV driver

Papasha appears driving an SCV when a dormitory facility is being upgraded after an update on 17 August 2017, tinkering around until the upgrade is complete.So did she turn nice when she's working on the server?

Reliable comrade

As found by some commanders, a section in the prologue was reserved for PPSh-41 to ask how Skorpion Vz.61 was.(PPSh-41:All clear on Papasha's side. How about Skorpion?)

Which might be considered care to east-European countries by the Soviet "big-brother" Union if little history background is known.Actually unrelated, former Czechoslovakia was instead being intervened by military force Perhaps this more or less represents the liberation of the capital of former Czechoslovakia, Prague in WWII.

So PPSh-41 stormed the Sangvis command post and saved Skorpion Vz.61. PPSh-41: It's me, Skorpion, we are here to get you out. Vz.61:Papasha...You still alive...?

Followed by some really T-doll-esque content:Vz.61:Am I dreaming... PPSh-41:(Smiles)Fool, do we dream?
