The PPS-43 (Pistolet-Pulemet Sudaeva, model of 1943 = Sudaev SMG) was born as an answer to the need in more compact and mobile weapon, than PPSch-41, then in use by Soviet Army. PPSch was too big and too heavy to be used by tank crews and mobile recon groups and paratroopers, so Army issued an request for new, more compact SMG. Sudaev initially designed new SMG in 1942, and it was adopted under the designation of PPS-42, and then refined the design in 1943, thus final model was marked as PPS-43. This SMG was manufactured in smaller than PPSch-41, quantities (ca. 500.000 manufactured at all) and sometimes is referred as a best SMG of World War 2. After WW2, it was widely exported to pro-Soviet regimes around the world and widely copied.

Technically, the PPS is a fully automatic weapon, based on simple blowback principle, and is fired from the open bolt. The gun is fired in full auto only. The safety is located in the triggerguard (somewhat like the M1 Garand). The receiver and barrel shroud is made from stamped steel. Rear sight is L-shaped flip type and is marked for 100 and 200 meters distance, front sight is fixed blade type. The barrel is equipped with simple muzzle brake. The folding stock is made from steel and folds under the receiver.

PPS uses PPSch-41-type box magazines. Drum type magazines cannot be used.
