Filmed in Italy, the film is about a Green Beret who enters Afghanistan trying to find "documents lost by his father during the fall of Iran. He ends up having to drive to the Pakistani border in an old school bus.

The following weapons were used in the film Afghanistan: Last War Bus:


Zastava M70

The Zastava M70 is seen in the hands of most "Soviet" conscripted troops. It is also used by Afghan bandits and Johnny Hondo (Mark Gregory) when his MP5 runs out of ammo.

a Yugoslavian version of the SKS is another common weapon of the "soviet" conscript troops. In the film the sound of the M70 is used instead of the sound of a single shot.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Johnny Hondo's main weapon during the film is an early model Heckler & Koch MP5A3 fitted with what looks to be a blank firing device on the muzzle. Used totally from the hip when fired. Linda Cain (Savina Gersak).

Johnny Hondo uses a M1911 throughout the film. Before the mission starts his dying father gives him his personal M1911. During the supply depot raid Johnny Hondo gives the M1911 to Kaber and almost gets himself killed by a Spetsnaz officer. Latter Captain Bowie steals the pistol from Kaber and holds it on Johnny Hondo when it is revealed that it is not documents that they are carrying but gold.

A RPK light machine gun is used during Johnny Hondo's first rescue mission by the "Soviets". Later it is used as a doorgun on Mi-17 "Hip" assault helicopters.RPK light machineguns were used in such a roll in Afganistan by the Soviets. May in fact be a Crvena Zastava M72B1 light machine gun but the image is unclear.

Mosin Nagant Rifle

the Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifle is rarely seen in the film. Some "soviet" conscripts are seen with Mosin Nagant rifles. This would be an anachronism as by that time the rifle was long out of service.
