"Narkomovskiy" Train (Narkomovskiy oboz)
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):
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.
Politruk (political commissar) Anatoliy Khomyakov (Anatoliy Petrov) and several other Soviet officers carry TT-33 pistols. Screen TT pistols are of post-1947 version.
In Praskovya Marchenko's flashback scene that takes place during the Russian civil war a Red commissar (uncredited) carries a Mauser C96 pistol.
During the final fight a German officer fires a Luger P08.
A PPSh-41 is a personal firearm of Starshina (Sgt.Maj.) Viktor Filippov (Sergey Makhovikov). Some other Soviet officers and NCOs, including Capt. Aleksandr Baragozov (Vlad Furman) and Semyon Verstovoy (Richard Bondarev), also carry PPSh-41s.
Many German soldiers are armed with MP40 SMGs.
Some German soldiers carry MP38 SMGs. Filippov (Sergey Makhovikov) uses a captured MP38 during the final fight.
Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
All four female soldiers, Sgt. Varvara Kerjak (Darya Baranova) and Pvts. Tamara Simovich (Olga Fadeeva), Praskovya Marchenko (Irina Rakhmanova) and Seraphima Brik (Yuliya Polubinskaya), are armed with Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbines. Some other characters, including coachmen Grandfather Arkhip (Mikhail Dolgopolov) and Mitya (Maksim Selyavo), also use M38 Carbines.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles are main weapons of Soviet soldiers. Grandfather Arkhip (Mikhail Dolgopolov) takes an M91/30 rifle from a deserter and uses it himself.
Many German soldiers are armed with Karabiner 98k rifles.
PKM (visually modified to resemble MG34)
German motorcyclists and infantry soldiers use MG34 machine guns that appear to be visually modified PKMs. Filippov (Sergey Makhovikov) and Capt. Aleksandr Baragozov (Vlad Furman) use captured machine guns in several scenes.
Genuine MG34s are seen in some scenes. They aren't firing.
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.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
German soldiers carry Model 24 Stielhandgranate hand grenades. Filippov (Sergey Makhovikov) takes two grenades from a killed soldier. During the encounter on the lumber-mill Varvara Kerjak (Darya Baranova) throws a grenade but doesn't know how to use it properly.
45 mm anti-tank gun M1937 (53-K)
An abandoned 53-K AT gun is seen on the road in one scene. In the final scene Soviet soldiers mans an AT gun.
