Land of Mine (Danish title:Under Sandet; German title:Unter dem Sand) is a 2015 Danish-German drama film directed by Martin Zandvliet. After the surrender of the German Armed forces in May 1945, a group of young German POWs under the command of Sgt. Carl Rasmussen is forced to demine the Danish West Coast. Like so many of his fellow Danes, Sgt. Rasmussen has a deep hatred for the Germans after having suffered five years of hardships during the occupation.

The following weapons were used in the film Land of Mine:
