Armour

During the battle in Winter 1918 Red Army division under the command of Khomutov uses an armoured train. The armoured train is a full size replica, made for the movie Red Square (Krasnaya ploshchad) (1970) and later appearing in a number of Soviet movies, including Beg (1970), I na Tikhom Okeane... (1974), Fiery Childhood (Ognennoye detstvo) (1976), Dni Turbinykh (1976), Ognennyy most (1976), Poedinok v tayge (1978), Dachnaya poezdka serzhanta Tsybuli (1979), and Lyudmila (1982). It consists of a genuine locomotive and two armoured railcars, one of OB-3 pattern (WW2 era) with a gun turret and another one of "2nd Siberian" pattern (Russian Civil war era) with a gun in an open shield mount. Both main guns are 76.2mm ZiS-3 with removed muzzle brakes (to make them look more like early 20th century models), also the train is armed with several Maxim machine guns.
