Unbroken is a 2014 biographical war drama produced and directed by Angelina Jolie. The film focuses on the life of Olympic athlete Louis "Louie" Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) and was based on the 2010 book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. Louis Zamperini is the youngest member of the US Olympic Games in 1936 to participate in the Olympic Games in Berlin. Four years later, Zamperini is a favorite for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, which are canceled due to the outbreak of the Second World War. Zamperini voluntarily goes to war as a gunner of a B-24D bomber. After a breakdown in the Pacific, two soldiers and himself can save themselves on a raft. There, they fight 47 days for survival before they are picked up and captured by the Japanese Navy. On the ship, they have to suffer sadistic humiliation, and the martyrs for Louis continue on land, because Watanabe (Miyavi), the commander of the prisoner of war camp, makes his life difficult for him.

The following weapons were used in the film Unbroken:
