NOTE: This article is about the Tokarev pistol used by multiple factions in ArmA: CWA. For its counterpart in ArmA 3's S.O.G. Prairie Fire Creator DLC, see TT-33 (S.O.G.).

« The Tokarev TT ("Tula, Tokarev") pistol was developed as a result of continuous trials, held by the Red Army in the mid- and late 1920s. Red Army looked for a new, modern semiautomatic pistol to replace obsolete Nagant M1895 revolvers and a variety of foreign semi-automatic pistols.

The Tokarev TT is a short recoil operated, locked breech pistol. It uses Browning swinging link system, borrowed from the Colt M1911 pistol, modified to simplify production.

The Tokarev TT-33 7.62 mm handgun.

The Tokarev TT-33 is a 7.62 mm handgun used by both Soviet military forces and Nogovan Partisans in ArmA: Cold War Assault.


The Tokarev TT-33 is a semi-automatic pistol that is chambered to fire the 7.62×25 mm round.

It loads from 8-round magazines, and can attain a fire rate of up to 600 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 450 m/s.

The TT-33 is the standard-issue service pistol of Soviet forces at the height of the Malden Islands Crisis. Compared to its U.S.-made counterpart, the TT-33 retains better stopping power due to its 7.62 mm round. It is only just slightly weaker than the S&W revolver, requiring only one or two body shots to take down an infantry target.

However, the TT-33's main drawback is its rather small magazine size. Unlike the 92F, the TT-33 is loaded with two less rounds in its magazine (versus the 92F's total of 10) which necessitates frequent reloading. Its other drawback is its fairly poor accuracy and low range which limits its maximum effective range to just under 35-40 metres.

Last but not least, it is unavailable in a suppressed sub-variant like the Glock 17 pistol, further limiting its usefulness if a mission requires a stealthy approach.

The TT-33 only supports one type of magazine. Each of them require at least one free inventory slot to carry:

Standard 8-round magazine.


  • The TT-33 is quite an anachronistic weapon for the time period that Cold War Assault takes place in. At this point in history, the real-world Soviet Armed Forces had long since transitioned to using the newer Makarov PM pistol which was chambered to fire the 9×18 mm Makarov round.
    • This transition had taken place more than thirty years earlier prior in 1951, long before the events of Resistance and Cold War Crisis.
  • Along with all other handguns, the TT-33 was not actually included as part of the default set of weapons that could be used in Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis (the initial release name of Cold War Assault). It was only added with the Resistance expansion pack, whereupon it was set to be the standard sidearm of Soviet forces.
