Can you tell me if I am correct in thinking that the weapon used by Vassili Zaitsev was a Mosin-Nagant M91/30 sniper rifle with 3.5 power PU telescopic sight? What weapon did his German counterpart use?? These would have been used at Staligrad in 1942. FYI: the top Russian sniper WW II was a woman: Liudmila Pavlichenko with 309 German kills & 2 Rumanian. Zaitsev was credited with 242 Germans.
