Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k rifle is seen in several scenes. German soldiers (including Hitler himself), and later the SS, are seen with this weapon. This is anachronistic as this rifle did not become active until June 1935. The Karabiner 98k may be standing in for the Mauser 98AZ Artillery Carbine in the World War I scenes.

In a second shot in the same scene, Hitler is seen carrying what appears to be an anachronistic Karabiner 98k.

Wz. 29 Mauser

What appears to be Polish Wz. 29 Mauser rifles are also carried by German soldiers.

Submachine Guns

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II

Machine Guns

ZB-53 (Maxim MG 08 mockup)

The Germans in the trenches are seen using a Czechoslovakian ZB-53 which has been modified to look like a historically accurate Maxim MG08.

ZB-53 / Vz.37 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Maxim MG 08 - 7.92x57mm Mauser; for comparison
The "MG08" in action. It differs from an actual Maxim by a few key points. The most noticeable is the portruding barrel from the water jacket: It is too high compared to the original which had the barrel portrude from the near bottom of the water jacket. (see above image of original Maxim)

Vickers Mk. I

During the 1919 German Revolution, the anti-communist Freikorps used a Vickers Mk1 against the communist "Spartacists" during the "Spartacist Uprising" in 1919.
