Fighting Film Collection No. 6 (Boyevoy kinosbornik No. 6)
Fighting Film Collection No. 6 (Boyevoy kinosbornik No. 6) is the sixth issue of Boyevoy kinosbornik series, released in November 1941. It contains three segments: "Boyevaya pesnya o slave russkogo orujiya/Battle Song about the Glory of Russian Weapons", "Nenavist/Hatred", "Pir v Zhirmunke/Feast in Zhirmunka", plus British documentary "Airwoman", depicting the activities of Women's Auxiliary Air Force. Natasha Matveeva (Zoya Fyodorova), the main character of the movie Frontovye podrugi, appears as a storyteller, uniting the segments.
The following weapons were used in the film Fighting Film Collection No. 6 (Boyevoy kinosbornik No. 6):
Red Army Lt. (Sergei Markushev) holds a Nagant M1895 revolver when he escorts downed German pilot (Sergey Martinson) in "Hatred". This is a pre-1930 version.
In "Feast in Zhirmunka" a German Feldwebel (Aleksandr Rumnev) is armed with an M1911 pistol.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
In the final sequence Red Army soldiers carry Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles.
