Lieutenant Suvorov is a 2009 Russian war movie directed by Aleksey Kozlov. The story takes place in Summer 1941. Aleksandr Suvorov (Aleksandr Lyapin), a young Red Army officer, with a handful of soldiers and civilian volunteers defends his native town that is in the way of the Wehrmacht offensive.
The following weapons were used in the film Lieutenant Suvorov:
Starshina (sergeant major) Prokhorov (Aleksey Baydakov) carries a Nagant M1895 revolver. Upon close inspection it appears to be a Blef ("bluff") blank firing revolver, a conversion of live Nagant.

Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer
A German Unteroffizier carries a pistol in typical Mauser wooden holster. It's seen very blurry due to fast motion but the pistol seems to have a protruding magazine and so it appears to be a Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer.

Mockup machine guns
Two MG37(t) machine guns (a German designation for ZB-53) are mounted on Pz.38(t) light tank, one in turret and another one in front position. The screen machine guns differs from real ones and aren't seen firing so they are supposed to be mockups rather than real firearms.
Two machine guns are seen.

MG15 machine gun is seen turret-mounted on a German Junkers Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. The Ju87 appears to be a radio controlled scale model so the machine gun isn't a real firearm.

A German armoured car is also seen during the battle. It resembles Sd.Kfz. 222 but the gun in the turret doesn't match 20mm KwK 30 autocannon that was a standard armament for this model. The gun doesn't fire during the battle so it appears to be mockup.
