Soviet Machinegunners at Sebastopol, 1944
Here we see two Soviet machine gunners supporting the infantry of the 4th Ukrainian Army during the liberation of Sebastopol in May 1944. The gun in the background is probably a PPSh-41 sub-machinegun, the most numerous sub-machine gun of the war. In the foreground is a Degtyaryov machine gun (DP-27), the main Soviet light machinegun of the war.
