Batalion (Original title: Batalyon - Russian: Батальонъ) is a 2015 Russian war drama about the biography of Mariya Bochkareva, was a Russian woman who fought in World War I and formed the Women's "Battalion of Death".
The following weapons were used in the film Batalion:
Mariya Bochkareva (Mariya Aronova), her deputy Lt. Seleznev (Nikolay Auzin), both instructors - Yefim Zadorozhnyy (Konstantin Vorobyov) and Alexey Kolokolchikov (Yakov Shamshin) and most Russian officers carry a Russian Nagant M1895. The revolvers are mostly of post-1930 version. At least one of it appears to be a Blef ("bluff") blank firing revolver, a conversion of live Nagant.
Mauser C96 "Broomhandle"
German officers in the film can be seen exclusively with a C96 Mauser "Broomhandle" pistol in hand.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Women from "Battalion of Death" are armed with Soviet Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles, standing for original M1891s.
Mosin Nagant M1891
Original Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles also can be seen, although much less frequently. They have rifle slings fitted in holes in the stock, not in swivels, so they appear to be M1891 Dragoon rifles.
Mauser Gewehr 98
Many of Imperial German soldiers are armed with Gewehr 98 rifles.
Mauser 98AZ Artillery Carbine
Some German soldiers are seen with Mauser 98AZ Artillery Carbines.
Czech vz. 24
A German soldier who leaps into the trench holds a rifle who is similar to VZ-24 Czech Mauser.
Most German infantrymen also used a classic Karabiner 98ks.
M48 Yugoslavian Mauser
Anachronistic M48 Yugoslavian Mausers are also used by German soldiers.
Madsen machine gun
Private Dusya Grynyova (Yanina Malinchik) seized a Madsen machine gun in the German trench. The shape of the magazine matches versions in German 7.92x57mm Mauser caliber, but generally, this Madsen looks more like 1920s-1940s versions as early Madsens had a different barrel shroud.
Lt. Nikolay Seleznev (Nikolay Auzin) and Vera Neklyudova (Valeriya Shkirando) a Maxim machine gun manned jointly.
On the edge of the trench is seen the German MG08/15 machine gun.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
German soldiers and also one of the women-volunteers use anachronistic Model 24 Stielhandgranates.
Private Serafima Pluzhnikova (Anna Kuznetsova) is seen used RG-14/30 hand grenades in the German trench.
Gaswurfminen mortar (mockup)
German artillery used mortars for firing gas-grenades. They appear to be mockups that bear only marginally resemblance with real Gaswurfminen.
