Mantis Jump (Pryzhok Bogomola) is a 2019 Russian made for TV spy film directed by Vladimir Balkashinov. In 1942 a Soviet agent Konstantin Bogomolov alias "Bogomol" ("Mantis") (Pavel Chinaryov) infiltrates the Abwehr spy training center. His purpose is to get the information about active enemy agents. When Bogomol is nearly successful, he is sent with a mission as a German agent. But upon returning Bogomol is arrested under the suspect that he is a double agent. His only chance of justification is to complete the task alone.

The following weapons were used in the film Mantis Jump (Pryzhok Bogomola):
