Country Trip of Sergeant Tsybulya (Dachnaya poezdka serzhanta Tsybuli)
Country Trip of Sergeant Tsybulya (Dachnaya poezdka serzhanta Tsybuli) is a Soviet 1979 war comedy directed by Nikolai Litus and Vitali Shunko. In Summer 1943 Red Army Sergeant Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov), young but already seasoned scout, is sent behind enemy lines with the mission to deliver anti-transport mines to partisans and help them to destroy the guarded railway bridge. Accidentally Tsybulya lands in wrong place. With the help of local girl Alyonka and old villager Karpo he manages to complete the task of destroying the bridge.
The following weapons were used in the film Country Trip of Sergeant Tsybulya (Dachnaya poezdka serzhanta Tsybuli):
In the opening scene Sgt. Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov) captures a German officer and takes his Luger P08 pistol.
The Walther PPK is the personal handgun of Maj. Schlüge (Mikhail Lvov). Sgt. Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov) disarms Schlüge and holds his pistol for some time. In the final scene Tsybulya gifts the pistol to Yasha (Vladimir Chubarev).
When Sgt. Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov) lands behind enemy lines, he is armed with the PPS-43. Later he has to trade it for the MP40 while being disguised as the German soldier.
Many Soviet soldiers, including the scouts Kolya (Georgi Dvornikov) and Vasya (Anatoliy Skoryakin), carry PPSh-41 SMGs, mostly with drum magazines.
Most German soldiers are armed with MP40 SMGs. Sgt. Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov), Grandfather Karpo (Vladimir Alekseyenko), Alyonka (Nadezhda Smirnova) and Yasha (Vladimir Chubarev) carry MP40s in several scenes.
Some MP38 SMGs are also seen in hands of German soldiers. Grandfather Karpo's (Vladimir Alekseyenko) MP40 briefly switches to MP38 and then back again.
Karabiner 98k rifles are carried by German soldiers. Alyonka (Nadezhda Smirnova) is armed with the captured 98k rifle in several scenes.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
In the opening scene Soviet soldiers carry Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles.
In the opening scene a unit of Soviet soldiers carry anachronistic AK-47s.
Machine Guns and Autocannons
MG34 machine guns are widely used by Wehrmacht troops, mostly mounted on BTR-152 APCs, standing for German APCs, on motorcycles and even on the armoured train. Sgt. Tsybulya (Sergei Ivanov) and Grandfather Karpo (Vladimir Alekseyenko) use MG34 in several scenes, and Aunt Efrosinya (Margarita Krinitsyna) carries one in the final scene.
In the opening scene Soviet troops carry Degtyaryov DP-27 machine guns.
In the opening scene Soviet troops carry Maxim M1910/30 machine guns. Both pre- and post-1941 versions are seen.
37-mm M1939 (61-K) AA autocannons stand for German 3,7 cm FlaK.
57-mm S-60 AA autocannon also stands for German AA gun. In reality these guns appeared only in 1950.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
Model 24 Stielhandgranates are seen in the BTR-152, hijacked by Tsybulya. One of these grenades is used to detonate the explosive charge and destroy the bridge.
In one scene Soviet soldiers carry PTRD-41 AT rifles.
Tsybulya's mission is to deliver MZD-4 delayed action anti-transport mines to partisans and teach them to use these weapon. He uses the mines to block the road and stop pursuing German troops, and later to destroy the bridge. The movie props appear to be the emply hulls of genuine mines.
Soviet Colonel (Nikolai Litus) carries a TT-33 holster.
Tanks and APCs
The German armoured train appears in several scenes. It is a full size replica, made for the movie Red Square (Krasnaya ploshchad) (1970) and later appearing in a number of Soviet movies, including Beg (1970), I na Tikhom Okeane... (1974), Fiery Childhood (Ognennoye detstvo) (1976), Dni Turbinykh (1976), Ognennyy most (1976), Poedinok v tayge (1978), Dachnaya poezdka serzhanta Tsybuli (1979), and Lyudmila (1982). It consists of a genuine locomotive and two armoured railcars, one of OB-3 pattern (WW2 era) with a gun turret and another one of "2nd Siberian" pattern (Russian Civil war era) with a gun in an open shield mount. Both main guns are 76.2mm ZiS-3 with removed muzzle brakes (to make them look more like early 20th century models), also the train is armed with several Maxim machine guns.
