Chernobyl is a 2019 HBO miniseries documenting the titular 1986 nuclear disaster and the ensuing aftermath.

The following weapons were used in the miniseries Chernobyl:


Makarov PM

Soviet soldiers and police throughout the series can be seen armed with Makarov PM pistols as their standard sidearms. In one scene, a soldier (Josef Altin) grows frustrated trying to get an elderly woman to evacuate and draws his Makarov, shooting the cow she was milking in order to force her to leave.

Mosin-Nagant M91/30

In Episode 4, "The Happiness of All Mankind", a group of Soviet soldiers named Bacho (Fares Fares), Garo, (Alexej Manvelov), and Pavel (Barry Keoghan) assigned to eliminate contaminated animals in the Chernobyl exclusion zone can be seen using Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifles. Pavel, having been conscripted for this task, doesn't even know how to load the rifle and has to be shown by Bacho.

Some soldiers, such as those at the funeral held for firefighters who responded to the explosion at the plant in Episode 3, "Open Wide O Earth," can be seen armed with AKM rifles. In another scene, however, a pair of soldiers can be seen with AKMs fitted with AK-74-style muzzle brakes, which are given away by the curved 7.62mm magazines (one even using a metal magazine instead of orange Bakelite like his comrade).
