Degraded Officer (original title Razzhalovannyi) is a Russian 2009 made for TV war drama movie directed by Vladimir Tumaev. In Winter 1943 a young Soviet officer during his first battle refuses to obey orders to attack without artillery support. He is degraded and convoyed to court-martial by an even more young and inexperienced military justice officer, supported by an aged soldier. It also appears that both officers have the same name - Vladimir Smirnov. During their way to division headquarters they come across a field hospital that is under attack of a German unit, breaking from encirclement. The prisoner and his guards have to fight side by side, and the battle proves fatal to most of them.

The following weapons were used in the film Degraded Officer (Razzhalovannyi):


Nagant M1895

Military justice Lt. Vladimir Smirnov (Filipp Bazhin) carries a Nagant M1895 revolver as his sidearm. During the final battle he gives his revolver to deraged Lt. Vladimir Smirnov (Nikita Tezin). A Nagant is also a sidearm of the battalion commander (Denis Karasyov). Upon close inspection the revolver (most likely a single movie prop is used) appears to be a Blef blank firing revolver, a conversion of live Nagant.
