||Benefis Film Studios
Loaded with Death (original title Zaryazhennye smertyu) is a Soviet 1991 (filmed 1990) action movie directed by Vladimir Plotnikov. A group of escaped criminals hijacks a Russian fishing vessel "Udachlivy" ("Lucky") in the waters of North Pacific. A Soviet Border Guard patrol ship "Yuri Andropov" and US Coast Guard helicopter make a joint operation to release the vessel. What neither criminals, nor border guards know is that the fisherman is loaded with smuggled drugs, and the American drug lord goes on his fast boat to get the drugs from "Udachlivy".
The following weapons were used in the film Loaded with Death (Zaryazhennye smertyu):
Sr. Lt. Rakov (Aleksandr Kulyamin) uses a Makarov PM during the shootout with criminals on board of "Udachlivy". Criminal Fedoseev (Vadim Andreev) uses Rakov's PM to commit suicide.

Nikodimov (Boris Bystrov) and his henchmen use several AKS-74 assault rifles, taken from slain prison guards. They constantly switch to AK-47s and back again.
