Description[edit source]

The SVT-40 is a Soviet semi-automatic rifle. It is a big improvement from the older SVT-38. It fires the hard-hitting 7.62x54mmR ammunition also found in most soviet rifles and machineguns.


The SVT-40 is a Soviet semi-automatic battle rifle. The SVT-40 saw widespread service during and after World War II. Intended to be the new service rifle of the Soviet Red Army, production was disrupted by the German invasion in 1941 resulting in a switch back to the older Mosin–Nagant bolt-action rifle for the duration of WWII. After the war, new rifles were adopted by the Soviets: the SKS and AK-47.


SVT-40 is a flexible weapon giving fair chances at any range under 125m(if you're a good shot). It's accurate, deals good damage with the highest rate of fire of all semi automatic rifles but lacks in stability, range and it's sights can't be adjusted. This rifle should be used from a crouched or prone position as the sights move a lot compared to the American and German counterparts. It compensates its low fire rate compared to SMGs with higher damage and shoots faster than bolt action rifles. It requires a tactical approach when facing more specialized opponents but it's highly rewarding due to having everything in one piece. Starting weapon of Soviet infantry.
