Bridge (Most), The
The Bridge (Most) is a 1969 Yugoslavian partisan film directed by Hajrudin Krvavac and starring Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic as Major "Tiger", the Yugoslavian partisan commando on mission to destroy the heavily guarded bridge in mountain valley. The only person who knows the weak spots in the construction of the bridge is the architect (Slobodan 'Cica' Perovic) who built it, but he is strongly opposed to the destruction of his creation. Meanwhile SS-Standartenführer Hofman (Hannjo Hasse) who is aware of "Tiger"'s mission prepares the cunning trap for the commandos.
The following weapons were used in the film The Bridge (Most):
MP40 SMGs are used by all members of commando group: "Tiger" (Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic), Zavatoni (Boris Dvornik), "Tihi" (Boro Begovic), Mane (Jovan Janicijevic-Burdus), Jelena (Sibina Mijatovic) and "Bambino" (Igor Galo). Numerous German officers and soldiers, notably SS officers Standartenführer Hofman (Hannjo Hasse), Obersturmführer Kautz (Relja Basic), Untersturmführer Nimayer (Demeter Bitenc) and Sturmführer Reinecker (Slobodan Velimirovic), also use MP40s.
Machine Guns and Autocannons
MG42 machine guns are used by German soldiers in several scenes. During the final shootout on the bridge "Tiger" (Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic), "Tihi" (Boro Begovic), Mane (Jovan Janicijevic-Burdus) and Jelena (Sibina Mijatovic) use captured MG42s. These machine guns could be not genuine MG42 but the Yugoslavian clone Zastava M53 that are nearly identical.
The Browning M1919A4 machine guns are mounted on M3 Scout Car APCs, standing for German vehicles.
The Browning M2HB heavy machine guns are mounted on M3 Scout Car APCs, standing for German vehicles.
Several 20 mm triple AA mountings Zastava M55 are seen on the bridge (probably used as the replacement for Flakvierling 38). During the final shootout "Tiger" (Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic) uses one of these guns.
40 mm Bofors
What appears to be the Bofors 40mm AA autocannon is seen on the partisans base.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
German soldiers carry Model 24 Stielhandgranate hand grenades. During the final shootout "Tihi" (Boro Begovic) shows the impressive feat of catching the grenade in air and throwing it back (a complex but basically executable trick due to four-and-a-half second delay of the fuze).
Model 39 Eihandgranate
Unidentified hand grenade
"Tiger" (Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic) uses unidentified hand grenade on the bridge. It resembles the hand made partisan grenades that were produced in large numbers during the war.
T-34-85 tanks and M3 Scout Car APCs stand for German armoured vehicles. They aren't visually modified, unlike many other WW2 movies.
76.2 mm Regimental Gun M1943
German troops on the bridge use several Soviet 76.2 mm M1943 cannons, probably standing for German 75 mm mountain guns.
