What you call RP-46, it a KPVT, standard weapon of BTRs. Second image in RPK section shows a PK, note the belt. Unknown Hand Grenade is a grenade for GR-25 launcher. The "tanks" are BMP-2s. The screenshot in M1919A section also shows a recoilless rifle, but it needs some work to ID the exact model. I'll look more careful on the page, maybe some more notes would be.

One more: two first images in GP-25 section show GSN-19, note the shape of the grip and long barrel. Greg-Z (talk) 08:03, 4 February 2017 (EST)
The rear part of the recoilless rifle makes me think about B-10 but the screen weapon lacks many external parts of B-10, like sights, wheels on the tripod and perforated cover. Possibly this is a well worn piece that was stripped of all these parts. Or maybe it's Chinese Type 65, a simplified version of B-10 that lacks wheels. Greg-Z (talk) 08:32, 4 February 2017 (EST)
Many thanks for the help! How do you think, is it correct now? Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:23, 4 February 2017 (EST)
Give me some time, please. For now I would add that there is also a scene of an air battle between Ka-50 and Mi-24. As far as I remember, YakB machine gun of Mi-24 is seen in this scene, right? Greg-Z (talk) 12:27, 4 February 2017 (EST)
I made some cleanup, especially in language (a lot of typos, sorry). Greg-Z (talk) 14:10, 4 February 2017 (EST)
Great thanks for the help! It's a very large page, so, I couldn't have done it alone. Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:24, 4 February 2017 (EST)

A bit of trivia about the movie

Chyornaya akula was filmed with collaboration with Kamov Design Bureau that provided the helicopter and test pilot. The movie was released on TV and on VHS but soon after the release the master tape mysteriously disappeared, and all DVD releases were made using VHS as source, hence the mediocre quality of the film.
