An Extraordinary Assignment (Russian title Chrezvychajnoe poruchenie, Armenian title Artakarg handznararutyun) is a Soviet Armenian 1966 (filmed 1965) adventure movie directed by Erazm Karamyan and Stepan Kevorkov. This is the second film of the trilogy about Armenian Bolshevik Simon Ter-Petrosian, better known by his nom de guerre Kamo. It follows Personally Known (Lichno izvesten) (1958) and is followed by The Last Deed of Kamo (Posledniy podvig Kamo) (1974). The story depicts a mission, performed by Kamo during the Russian Civil war: he delivers documents and large summ in gold from Petrograd to Transcaucasian Bolshevicks. The only way is across the territories, controlled by Whites. Meanwhile Boris Savinkov, leader of counterrevolutionary organisation, hunts for Kamo.


The following weapons were used in the film An Extraordinary Assignment (Chrezvychajnoe poruchenie):

Contents


Revolvers

Nagant M1895

Kamo (Gurgen Tonunts) and numerous Bolshevicks, Anarchists and members of counterrevolutionary organisation use Nagant M1895 revolvers. Most if not all revolvers are of anachronistic post-1930 model.

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Pistols

Mauser C96

Several Anarchists carry Mauser C96 pistols. In one scene Kamo (Gurgen Tonunts) takes a Mauser from Anarchists leader Krivoy (Vladimir Kenigson). Most likely the same prop is reused in all scenes, and it appears to be a C96 Wartime model.

Pre-War dated Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" Commercial Version - 7.63x25mm Mauser. The screen gun is of slightly different Wartime version.

Unidentified pistol

Boris Savinkov (Semyon Sokolovsky), the leader of counterrevolutionary organisation, uses a pistol. It resembles Walther PP (out of time for 1917) but it's hard to say for sure.

For comparison: Walther PP - 7.65x17mm (.32 ACP)

Rifles

Mosin Nagant M1891 Infantry

Red Guards, Anarchists and White troops widely use Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles. Both Infantry and Dragoon models are seen.

One of the native Caucassian guides of Kamo carries a Mosin Nagant carbine, possibly an M1938, with partially removed handguard.

Shotguns

Mosin Nagant/Frolov Shotgun

One of the native Caucassian guides of Kamo carries a long gun that appears to be a Mosin Nagant/Frolov Shotgun (or maybe but less likely this is a "sporterized" Mosin Nagant rifle).

Frolov Shotgun - 28 gauge

Machine Guns

Hand Grenade (mockup)

What appears to be a mockup of "pineapple" hand grenade is seen in several scenes. Possibly it is intended to impersonate British Mills Bomb or French F1.

Trivia

3 inch M1902 Field Gun

76.2mm M1902 Field Gun
A pair of 3 inch M1902 field guns is seen at the entrance of Smolniy, the headquarters of Bolsheviks in the days of Revolution 1917.

Armoured Train

Anarchists' armoured train appears to be a crude mockup.

Unlike very elaborated replicas of armoured trains in some Soviet movies about the Civil war, this version looks crude and inaccurate.
