Assassination, The (Atentát)
The Assassination (Original Czech title: Atentát) is a 1964 Czech black-and-white war drama directed by Jirí Sequens. The story depicts the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in 1942 which was perpetrated by parachutists from the group ANTHROPOID sent from England. This is considered a cult classic film for those interested in war history.
The following weapons were used in the film Assassination, The (Atentát):
Czechoslovak paratroopers and their British instructors mostly use CZ 38 pistols.
Some Gestapo men carry a Walther P38 pistol. Czech paratroopers also capture this gun.
Most SS, SD, and Gestapo officers in 1942 are equipped with Luger P08 pistols.
The main weapon of Czechoslovak paratroopers from Great Britain is the Sten submachine gun.
Some SS soldiers are armed with MP40 submachine guns.
Most German soldiers are armed with Karabiner 98k rifles.
12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
Germans deploy an MG34 machine gun against the trapped paratroopers.
An MG42 is seen briefly before becoming an MG34 in a continuity error. The appearance of an MG42 is likely anachronistic as the MG42 was only recently adopted for use at the time of Operation Anthropoid.
