Degraded Officer (Razzhalovannyi)
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):
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.
During the final battle Military justice Lt. Vladimir Smirnov (Filipp Bazhin) uses a PPSh-41, taken from a wounded soldier. Then the PPSh is seen in hands of deraged Lt. Vladimir Smirnov (Nikita Tezin).
German soldiers are mostly armed with MP40 SMGs. Vladimir Mikhaylovich (Aleksandr Mikhaylov) picks up an abandoned MP40 but doesn't use it in action. A deserter soldier (Mikhail Solodko) also carries an MP40.
Mosin Nagant M1944 Carbine
The aged soldier Vladimir Mikhaylovich (Aleksandr Mikhaylov) carries a Mosin Nagant M1944 Carbine, an incorrect weapon for 1943. The deraged Lt. Vladimir Smirnov (Nikita Tezin) steals the carbine from Vladimir Mikhaylovich; for a short time he is disarmed by a deserter soldier (Mikhail Solodko).
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Most Soviet soldiers carry Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles.
German soldiers also are armed with Karabiner 98k rifles. In one scene Vladimir Mikhaylovich (Aleksandr Mikhaylov) picks up an abandoned 98k but doesn't use it in action.
A Degtyaryov DP-27 is briefly seen in the dugout of the battalion commander in the opening scene.
During the final battle German soldiers use an MG34.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
During the final battle German soldiers use Model 24 Stielhandgranate hand grenades. Several "Potato Mashers" are seen in the hideout of the deserter soldier.
A PTRD-41 AT rifle is seen in the opening scene.
