The 3-inch Russian gun M1927 is used by the Austro-Hungarian soldiers in the scene that takes place in 1918. This is an anachronism, but a weapon (except the wheels) is similar to the 3-inch Russian gun M1913 which really could be captured by Austrian troops.
A gun that looks like 85mm D-44 or D-48 AT gun is seen in the water near the beach. It stands for a gun left by the retreat of the White Army from Odessa.
