Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. We are back after a week of silence, with a render of a brand new Soviet service pistol. Enjoy!
The Tokarev TT-33 was a small, semi-automatic pistol that was developed in the 1930s as a replacement for the aging, Nagant M1895 revolver.
The TT-33 started life however, as the very similar, TT-30. After passing its first set of trails and tests, the weapon was eventually accepted for combat use. Even as it was put being produced, small changes were still made to various parts of the pistol, including the barrel, frame, and trigger. The result was the TT-33, which was widely used amongst Soviet forces. Being able to withstand tremendous amounts of abuse, the TT-33 quickly gained a reputation for being very reliable, and thus was very popular with many non-Soviet forces. For example, the 7.62 Tokarev round was very similar to the German, 7.63 Mauser round. Many TT-33s were captured by the Wehrmacht and given the designation, Pistole 615(r). Over 1.7 million TT-33 pistols or variants were produced, and the pistol is still in use today by a few countries. The Tokarev TT-33 pistol was made by Seth Soldier.
