23-F (full Spanish title 23-F: la pelicula ("23-F: The Film")) is a 2011 Spanish historical movie directed by Chema de la Pena. The movie depicts the events of "23-F", an attempted coup d'etat in Spain on 23-24 February 1981, performed by officers of the Guardia Civil.
The following weapons were used in the film 23-F:
Star Model BM
In full accordance with real events, Lt. Col. Antonio Tejero (Paco Tous), Capt. Jesús Muñecas Aguilar (Luis Zahera), Santiago Vecinos (Luis Callejo), Enrique Bobis González (Juan Alberto López), Carlos Lázaro Corthay (Tomás del Estal) and other Guardia Civil officers are armed with Star Model BM pistols.
An officer, commanding the troops in TVE broadcasting studio, hold an M1911-style pistol, probably one of full-size Star models.
When Lt. Gen. Jaime Milans del Bosch (Lluís Marco) surrenders his pistol when the coup had failed, it appears to be a Llama model but the exact model is unknown.
Some security guards of the Congress carry revolvers. These guns are most likely Spanish produced Astra or Llama model.
Some of Guardia Civil are armed with Star Z62 SMGs.
CETME Model C
Most Guardia Civil personnel and Spanish Army soldiers are armed with CETME Model C rifles.
Documentary footage of violence in post-Franco Spain shows various terrorists, training with firearms (possibly Basque group ETA).
Smith & Wesson 59
A pistol with slide-mounted safety that appears to be a Smith & Wesson 59 is seen in documentary footage.
Parinco Model 3R
An SMG that is possibly a Spanish Parinco Model 3R is seen in documentary footage.
An FN FAL is seen in documentary footage.
M60 tanks and M113 APCs are seen when Brunete Motorized Division under rebelleous Gen. Jaime Milans del Bosch deploys the troops of Brunete Motorized Division on Valencia streets. In reality Brunete had M47 tanks that were unavailable during the filming and replaced with roughly similar M60s of Spanish Army Brigada Guadarrama XII.
