Heaven's Soldiers (Korean: 천군, Cheongun) is a 2005 South Korean science fiction action-comedy directed by Min Joon-ki.

The North and South Korean governments have secretly joined forces to create a nuclear warhead. But when the United Nations force the end of the project and demands the surrender of the weapon, the North Korean General Kang steals the bomb. A South Korean commando team is sent to stop him. During the battle, a total of eight soldiers from both sides inadvertently fall into a spatiotemporal rift that transports them to the year 1572, where the Joseon kingdom finds itself beset by invaders.


The following weapons were used in the film Heaven's Soldiers:

Pistols

Beretta 92FS

General Kang carries an inaccurate Beretta 92FS as a North Korea officer, who would likely carry a more appropriate TT-33 or a Baekdusan CZ-75 clone. During the final battle, Major Park also uses it.

Rifles

M4A1

Norinco Type 56

At the beginning of the movie, Korean People's Army soldiers are seen holding AK-74 rifles, but in a continuity error, they switch for Norinco Type 56s with synthetic furniture. General Kang uses a Type 56-2 at the end of the movie.

Sniper Rifles

Heckler & Koch PSG-1

ROKA soldiers use the PSG-1 as their sniper rifle. It is briefly used by General Kang when he tries to kill a Jurchen commander. At the end, Major Park kills almost all the riders with the rifle.

RGD-5

RGD-5s are the grenades carried by the North Koreans. A Joseon official, who obviously doesn’t know what is it, removes and replaces the pin three times as torture, as he sees the modern soldiers panicking when he does it.
