Carcano M91/24

The Italian soldiers from the medical unit of the Minotauro division are armed mainly with Carcano short rifles, identifiable by the full-size rear sights. Over the years the development of the Carcano TS and 91/24 series was quite troubled, full of a lot of updates and fixes. For this reason, in the case of The Roses of the Desert, Carcano M91/24 shows have unusual position of belt loops, in the middle of the front.

Schwarzlose M.07/12 (Mock-up)

The soldiers install a Schwarzlose machine gun for anti-aircraft defense. The Schwarzlose machine guns were confiscated by the Kingdom of Italy at the Astro-Hungarian Empire, as well as many other light and heavy weapons, after the Allied victory in the First World War. These weapons were assigned to the colonial Italian native troops (for example Steyr M95 was assigned to many indigenous corps) or rear troops, such as medical troops. The one shown in the film is probably a mock-up since during firing the belt-fed does not move and we can note that hidden on the bottom is a small curved magazine.
