What walls does the legendary PPSH break through?

29
Behind a stone wall is not always safe. This proved the legendary submachine gun Shpagin (PPSH). In the experiment, cartridges of caliber 7,62 mm from a TT pistol were used, from which the most popular building materials of today were shot. Some of them even withstood multiple hits, but most were pierced.

    Apparently, the authors wanted the best, but it would be better not to see this video.
    I put in a place like - "zero".

          Was it a Russian parody of a devastating ranch?

      That is unlikely.
      This is the comet of tartar maple.
      You can’t always take him with a cleaver. It was the case with a sledgehammer chopped up trying to split such a comel.
      But they don’t build houses from tatarnik.

    PPSh for close combat, an energetic shot a facing brick, and a building cartridge, even a hollow one, this cartridge will not break. And already a full-bodied building ...

    Cladding brick is hollow, not vintage brick and it breaks through. You need to try masonry, vintage.
    The PPSh itself is beautiful. It was not without reason that the Germans armed themselves with enthusiasm during the war.

        Yeah, during the Second World War, there were such bricks in the walls. winked This September, I specially examined the walls of houses built in the late 19th century - there are clearly large bricks there. Well, and, of course, never hollow

    I looked before the destruction of the third brick. There was no point in looking further. If the author of the video does not distinguish between crushing and breaking through the material, then explaining something is useless. And the brick is taken for decoration and they stand separately. To make a wall of these bricks in a couple of dozen rows, and even without fastening the rows with a solution, the result would be different. And if, instead of the finishing brick, the usual one is used, then breaking through the bullet does not shine at all. In any case, the result will be much more modest.

    Well, they have already said about penetration. But the fact that the store needs to be locked with a latch did not prompt the arrow - here are the delays in firing.

    In general, the shooter looks like an amateur repeat . Specialists know that the magazine is designed for 72 rounds and if it is full, there may be delays with which the machine does not suffer if the store has 70 or less rounds. This "specialist" needs to smell his hands lol in order to know what they smell (stink) and where they grow from hi

    In fact, the problem of new disk stores at PPSh existed, but the guy can immediately see that the store is new. In my time. about 35 years ago. Being on a business trip in Moscow, he lived in a hotel with a participant in the infantry war that had passed before Berlin. They talked a lot about them in the evenings. Accidentally touched on this topic, said that new stores suffered delays. All the time he himself used his favorite store, which he picked up in a puddle on the road that. despite. that it was never rusty ... Before the very end of the war he was shamed.

    With each machine gun a set of fitted shops came from the factory, of course, it was possible to score a left one, but something like this:

      In PPD, round shops were just customized for a particular machine and were not interchangeable. The PCA gradually eliminated this drawback.

    Probably, instead of the new AK-12, they want to put "modernized" PPSh in the Russian army :)

    The legendary PCA is nothing less than the legendary Suomi, with which the Finns fought off the Soviet invasion.

      So to speak, Suomi is the converted Bergman of 1918, and Bergman spied on the idea of ​​a shooting machine for close combat in Revelli. Before Suomi, we had the same things developed by Tokarev and Degtyarev. Another thing is that the military comrades looked at these matters through their fingers, considering this weapon not serious. And the Finnish war just showed the promise of this weapon. There is nothing special in either Suomi or PCA. Another thing is that Shpagin made most of the parts stamped in his PCA, which greatly reduced the cost and accelerated production. The military also suffered the same overtightness while accepting Maxim's machine gun. Attitude to him changed the Japanese war.
      My first chief in the army was the platoon and company commander in the infantry during the war. He talked about frequent PCA failures with a round store. On the belt of the officers had a pocket for a whistle. In the rumble of battle, the whistle is heard well. Before jumping out of the trench, the commander gave three whistles and everyone had to jump out of it together. If the commander jumped out of the trench picturesquely and shouted - after me - then he immediately received a bullet from a German sniper or machine gunner. And before whistling, a short burst was usually given from the machine to the wall of the trench. Once he took the machine, pressed the shutter and only heard the click of the shutter, the cartridge in the store jammed. He grabbed the machine gun of the orderly, pulled the shutter, pressed and again just a click. And the fire shaft has already gone ahead and we must run, otherwise the Germans will come to their senses. The signal “to attack” whistled, and so he ran forward with a non-firing machine gun. That time it worked out. Therefore, then they switched to carob stores.

        - FINSKAYA showed absolutely nothing of the kind-that is why we are armed with Kalashnikov, and not all variations of the RPM / PPSh (which at a distance of more than 150 m is not at all anyone). It’s just that in the initial period of the war, when ALL reserves of ABC / SVT were lost and the mosquitoes began to run out - they remembered sharply - solely because stamping can be done in almost every bed workshop, where there are one and a half lathes and a press of 5 tons. And here PPSh abruptly became an awesome machine-gun, because it cannot be more primitive than design in nature ....
        More or less qualified personnel did not abandon their SVTshka, and even more so did not change their “daddy”.

    This is a controversial statement, because "the USSR gained full control over Lake Ladoga and secured Murmansk, which was located near Finnish territory (Rybachy Peninsula). In addition, under a peace treaty, Finland assumed the obligation to build a railway on its territory, connecting the Kola Peninsula through Alakurtti with the Gulf of Bothnia (Tornio), but this road was never built. On October 11, 1940, the Agreement of the USSR and Finland on the Aland Islands was signed in Moscow, according to which the USSR "ave to place your consulate on the islands, and the archipelago was declared a demilitarized zone."

    It is ridiculous to hope that it is possible to break through the wall of a brick house from PPSh, as we can see, even a single-mesh single brick does not always break through, and a wall, even built from such a brick, is only half a brick ten times stronger and more stable single brick. This is the same as believing that it is possible to break through a wall of a brick house with a thickness of 2 bricks from a Mosin rifle, more than 50 cm thick. On this wall, rifle bullets also leave only dents, 2-3 deep mm And a bullet from a rifle will not penetrate the wall of a log house either.
