Beyond the Border (Swedish title: Gränsen) is a 2011 Swedish World War II film directed by Richard Holm. Set in 1942 at Swedish-Norwegian border, Sweden remains neutral with Germany, but two Swedish soldiers leave their post at check-point because they want to see the German soldiers. Soon Swedish soldiers were captured by German troops. Lt. Aron Stenstrom is forced to go on a secret rescue mission because one of the missing soldiers was his brother.
The following weapons were used in the film Beyond the Border:
