Unlike the other nations involved in the world greatest conflict Russia deployed large numbers of women in frontline military units.
Despite a much higher rate of fire over the Russian standard rifle the Tokarev SVT-40 was not popular with troops, it was complex in design and manufacture by Russian standards and required higher levels of care to keep it firing, and the earlier SVT-38 model had a tendancy for the ammunition clip to fall out although this drawback was ironed out in the SVT-40.
Despite the manufacturing complexity requiring a skilled workforce the weapon was delivered in large numbers during the war and was widely available, and served as an ideal multi-purpose hybrid between rifle and submachineguns.
