Narkomovskiy oboz is a Russian 2011 war mini-series directed by Vlad Furman. In November 1941 Starshina (Sgt.Maj.) Viktor Filippov (Sergey Makhovikov) gets a task to deliver to frontline troops a supply train, loaded with vodka. His team consists of four young female soldiers and two civilian coachmen, an old man and a boy. During the way to frontline they have many encounters, including the final battle against a German unit that not all of them survived.

Note: the movie hasn't any official title in English so the original title is translated and need some clarification. "Narkomovskiy" literally means "something that belongs to Narkom" (a short for Narodny Komissar, "People's Commissar", an analog of minister in USSR at that time). But Red Army military slang used "narkomovskiy" in a figurative sense, as a name for vodka rations that were introduced by the order of Narkom Oborony (People's Commissar of Defence) Voroshilov. So this word in the title doesn't need a literal translation.

The following weapons were used in the film "Narkomovskiy" Train (Narkomovskiy oboz):


Nagant M1895

Several characters, including Medical service Sr. Lt. Nadejda Kolyadina (Anna Arlanova), a mayor of a small town Grigory Pitzuk (Aleksandr Brankevich) and a trio of robbers - "Tuz" ("Ace") (Sergey Vlasov), "Sutuly" ("Round-shouldered") (Viktor Molchyan) and "Rezvy" ("Spirited") (Kirill Novitskiy), carry Nagant M1895 revolvers.

Two MG17 machine guns are wing-mounted on a Ju 87 Stuka. The Ju87 appears to be a radio controlled scale model or even a computer-generated image so the machine guns aren't real firearms.
