Unknown Rifle appears to be the same sporterized rifle that is used by Laansoo. It is possibly a Mauser (or maybe some other manufacturer) but not what is called Mauser Sporter as all versions of Sporter have turned down bolt handle while this one has a straight bolt handle, like military Mauser 98s. I have a guess that this particular rifle is a sporterized military rifle but possibly not. Now let's look on the hand grenade. It is much larger than RG-14 and its size and shape allow to identify it as Novitsky–Fyodorov grenade, designed for destroying field fortification. It was known under the nickname "desyatifuntovka" (Ten-pounder) for its weight. It's very interesting to see this rare item in the movie. Greg-Z (talk) 13:12, 24 December 2016 (EST)

A note about artillery: most field cannons are British 18-Pounders except for the one on the last screenshot that is a Russian M1902. The heavy howitzers appear to be Russian 6-inch M1909 or M1910s. Greg-Z (talk) 13:19, 24 December 2016 (EST)
Many thanks for the help! Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:33, 24 December 2016 (EST)
I would also suggest to use more appropriated samples, like Russian Nagant with round front sight (the image is on Nagant talk page) rather than the Soviet model; the same is with M91 rifles that cannot be M91/30s. And please replace long dash in Novitsky–Fyodorov with a hyphen (Novitsky-Fyodorov) as these two signs are different, and we use here hyphens for simplicity.
