Corps of General Shubnikov (Korpus generala Shubnikova) is a 1980 Soviet war movie about the battle on Soviet-German front in December 1942.

The following weapons were used in the film Corps of General Shubnikov (Korpus generala Shubnikova):


Tokarev TT-33

Soviet officers' service sidearms are TT-33 pistols. They are mostly seen in holsters.

Luger P08/Walther P38

Mauser Rifle

Some German soldiers are seen with Mauser rifles. It's hard to say if they are Karabiner 98ks or Gewehr 98s or a mix of both.

PK (visually modified to resemble MG34)
