||Panfilov's Twenty Eight|
Panfilov's 28 (28 panfilovtsev) is a 2016 Russian war drama directed by Andrey Shalopa and Kim Druzhinin. It depicts one of the most famous episodes of the Battle for Moscow, the story of Panfilov's Twenty-Eight Guardsmen, a small unit of Red Army soldiers of General Panfilov's division who stood against the overwhelming forces of Wehrmacht in November 16, 1941 at the village of Dubosekovo and mostly perished in action.
The following weapons were used in the film Panfilov's 28 (28 panfilovtsev):
Most Soviet officers, including battalion commander Maj. Fyodor Reshetnikov (Anton Kuznetsov), company commader Capt. Pavel Gundilovich (Aleksey Longin), Sr. Lt. Pyotr Ignatyev (Dmitriy Sutyrin), and Politruk (political instructor) Vasily Klochkov (Aleksey Morozov), carry Tokarev TT-33 pistols in holsters. When repelling the last German attack, Sgt. Ivan Dobrobabin (Yakov Kucherevskiy) takes the TT from wounded Klochkov.
