Farewell (Proshchay) is a Soviet 1967 (filmed 1966) B&W war movie directed by Grigori Pozhenyan. In Spring 1944 a unit of Soviet torpedo boats of Black Sea fleet gets a mission to intercept German sail schooner Lola that is used for secret operations.
The following weapons were used in the film Farewell (Proshchay):
During boarding of Lola, Sr. Lt. Matvey Podymakhin (Viktor Avdyushko), commander of torpedo boat, holds a TT-33 pistol.
Kriegsmarine officers on Lola are armed with pistols that are seen very unclear. They appear to be Luger P08 or (less likely) Walther P38.
Soviet soldiers and sailors are mostly armed with PPSh-41 SMGs.
Some Soviet soldiers and sailors are armed with MP40s. German sailors use MP40 during the boarding of Lola.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Some Soviet soldiers are armed with Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles.
In one scene a Soviet cavalryman carries a Mauser rifle of unclear model (perhaps, but not necessarily a Karabiner 98k).
Double Barreled Shotgun
A Double Barreled Shotgun with exposed hammers is seen in the house of meteorologist Lyuba (Zhanna Prokhorenko).
Machine Guns and Autocannons
KPV heavy machine guns in 2M-5 twin mountings are mounted on Soviet Project 123-K torpedo boats. These torpedo boats are of post-war model; wartime torpedo boats were armed with DShK machine guns.
37-mm V-11 AA twin mounting, naval version of 61-K, is seen in one scene.
Twin (over and under) 25-mm AA automatic guns 2M-3M with two 110-PM autocannons are mounted on Project 183 torpedo boats. In reality these guns appeared only in 1950s.
Diana Model 25 (Izhmash PSR) Air Rifle
Stroyev (Vladimir Akimov) shoots a pellet gun in the shooting gallery. It appears to be a German pre-war Diana Model 25 or its Soviet produced under license copy Izhmash PSR.
2.8 cm sPzB 41
An abandoned 2.8 cm sPzB 41, light anti-tank gun with squeeze bore, is seen in recently liberated town of Yalta. Possibly same prop (this is a really rare gun) was used in Port, filmed by same studio a decade later.
Most Soviet torpedo boats, seen in the movie, are Project 123-K. They are armed with two 450mm (17.7") torpedo tubes and a twin 14.5mm machine gun.
Project 183 torpedo boats are seen in one scene in Yalta port. They are armed with two 533mm (21") torpedo tubes and two twin 25mm autocannons.
