In the Fog (V tumane) is a 2012 Russian language co-production war drama directed by Sergey Loznitsa and based on the story by Vasil Bykov. The plot is set in 1942 in Nazi occupied Belarus. Four railway workers are arrested on charges of organizing the crash of a German train. Three of them are executed, while one man named Sushenya (Vladimir Svirskiy) is being released. Rumours of Sushenya’s treason spread quickly, and two partisans, Burov (Vladislav Abashin) and Voitik (Sergey Kolesov), are sent to carry out the death sentence. In reality Sushenya is innocent but he cannot prove it as his release is the plan of a German officer to make a trap for partisans.

The film is the third screen adaptation of the original novel, preceded by 1992 Russian and 1994 Belarusian films.

The following weapons were used in the film In the Fog (V tumane):


Nagant M1895

Burov (Vladislav Abashin) carries a Nagant M1895 revolver.

Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38R Nagant. Note the angular front sight which was used from 1930s.
Voitik (Sergey Kolesov) carries a holstered Nagant, taken from wounded Burov.
Voitik returns the revolver to Burov.
In the final, fog-covered scene Sushenya (Vladimir Svirskiy) takes the revolver.

Submachine Guns

Mosin Nagant Carbine (rework)

Burov (Vladislav Abashin) is armed with what looks like a Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine. But close-ups allow to see the hex receiver and the original M91 unhooded "barleycorn" front sight - features that weren't ever used on M38 Carbines. Nevertheless, the crossbolt is positioned off center that is a feature of post-1930 production. So, judging by the combination of these feature, we may assume that this is a rework rifle with the M91 receiver and the M91 barrel, shortened to carbine length, mounted on the M38 stock.

For comparison: Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine - 7.62x54mm R
For comparison: Mosin Nagant M1891 Dragoon - 7.62x54mm R
Burov carries the carbine.
A good view of Burov's carbine. The rear sight seems to be Konovalov M1891 model, different from the one used on M38 Carbines.
The hex receiver, the rear sight and the bolt handle are seen.
Burov aims at Sushenya.
Voitik (Sergey Kolesov) carries his M91/30 rifle and the carbine taken from wounded Burov. He also carries the empty Nagant holster.
A close-up shows the receivers and rear sights of the carbine and the rifle.
The front sight of the carbine is seen. While the blade with curved top and notched rear is uncommon for original Russian guns, it can be found on M91 rifles with Finnish repairs and modifications.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30

Voitik (Sergey Kolesov) carries a Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifle.

Sicherheitsdienst (SD) SS-Hauptsturmführer Grossmayer (Vlad Ivanov) carries a holster for Luger P08. The holster is supposed to be empty.

Armored Vehicles

A half-track APC Sd.Kfz. 251 (or post-war Czechoslovakian OT-810) is seen on the road. Two machine guns are mounted on the APC, one in the front part, with an armor shield, and another one at the rear part. Most likely these are MG34s but it's impossible to say for sure.
