Chapaev (Russian Title: Чапаев) is a 1934 classic Russian film directed by Georgi Vasilyev and Sergei Vasilyev. The film tells about Vasily Ivanovich Chapaev who was the famous Red Army commander during the Russian Civil War.
The following weapons are seen in the movie Chapaev:
Russian Nagant M1895
FN Model 1905
The White Army Colonel Borozdin (Illarion Pevtsov) holds the pocket pistol that is supposed to be FN Model 1905.
Mosin Nagant Rifle
Most of the Red Army men and White Army soldiers are armed with full-length Mosin Nagant Rifles
Some Red Army men and White Army soldiers use Arisaka Type 38 rifles. It is historically correct. The Russian Army has purchased these rifles during the World War I.
The White Army troops use BA-27 armored car in the final battle. It is an anachronism. The BA-27 was manufactured from 1928, after the Russian Civil War. Instead of real armament (it constists of 37-mm Hotchkiss gun and Degtyaryov DT machine gun) the movie armored car got two Maxim M1910s.
76.2 mm divisional gun model 1902
At the end of the movie White Army troops used 76.2 mm divisional gun model 1902 to to destroy the house, which was defended by Chapaev.
152mm howitzer M1910
The Red Army troops used the 6-inch (152mm) howitzers during a counter-attack.
