22 Minutes (22 minuty) is a 2014 Russian action movie directed by Vasily Serikov. The story is loosely based on events of May 2010 in the Gulf of Aden when Somali Pirates hijacked the Russian tanker Moscow University and its rescue by the the Russian Navy destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov. In the film, the hijacked vessel is the liquefied gas tanker Yamal, and the destroyer is named Admiral Krylov.

The following weapons were used in the film 22 Minutes (22 minuty):


EKOL Firat Magnum

The pirate's chief Amin Nur Barre (Eebra Tooré) is the only character to carry handgun. His Beretta 92FS appears to be blank firing EKOL Firat Magnum.

In movie trailer, the inscription "Voltran P92" can be seen. Voltran is another trade mark for EKOL.

In the climactic scene Amin aims his pistol...
...but Starshina (Sgt. Maj.) Tikhonov (Ivan Porodnov) blocks the trigger with his combat knife.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

Amin's second-in-command carries the M1928A1 Thompson SMG, fitted with a custom folding stock. Sanya Yezhov (Makar Zaporozhskiy) manages to disarm the pirate and uses the SMG himself.

A closer view. The handguard and the cooling fins on the barrel differ from the original Thompson so this gun appears to be some kind of replica.

Simonov SKS

Several pirates carry the SKS Rifles with aftermarket SVD detachable magazines conversion, bipod, muzzle brakes, and new sights.

The production still allows to identify the gun as a modified SKS.

Assault Rifles


Most pirates are armed with AKM assault rifles.

In several scenes, Russian Marines carry AKMS assault rifles. Some of them are fitted with fake AK-74-style muzzle brakes.

During the night raid, several Marines carry AKMSL assault rifles. The AKMSL is a version of the AKMS fitted with an elongated slotted flash suppressor and NSP-3 night scope rail. The screen guns lack the NSP-3 but the shape and size of the flash suppressor allows to differ this version from a regular AKMS.

AK-74 assault rifles are also seen in the hands of the pirates.

Colt M16A2

One of the pirates is armed with the M16A2 assault rifle. As genuine M16s are rarely seen in Russian movies, this rifle is probably an airsoft gun or some other kind of non-firing replica.
