@Schwern: my point is that it is possible to make a pump action with a powerful cartridge and box magazine. I don't think M760 uses any technology not available in 1900.

@Oldcat: true, and they were also more expensive; but the question is about another war, half a century later.

History without dates/locations is like math without numbers or physics without units.

comment How to explain the Khalkhin Gol outcome in view of Soviet weakness and Japanese strength at that time?
I think you misunderstood most of my answer. Winter War was won by SU (they did not reach all their political objectives, but militarily it was a victory). "Scale of attack" was relevant for comparing Soviet performance in Barbarossa vs Winter War, not SU vs German performance.
