Big Game (Bolshaya igra)
Big Game (Bolshaya igra; Russian: Большая игра, Bulgarian: Golyamata igra, Голямата игра) is a 1988 Soviet-Bulgarian political thriller, based on the novel Press Center by Yulian Semyonov.
During a military coup in an unnamed Latin American country, millionaire Grazio, the financer of a united energy system project in the country, is murdered while a Bulgarian journalist is seriously wounded. Soviet writer and international journalist Dmitriy Stepanov launches an investigation into the connection between these two events...
The following weapons were used in the film Big Game (Bolshaya igra):
The conspirators who kidnap Grazio are armed with M1911A1 pistols.
Hotchkiss "Type Universal"
During the attempted murder of Miguel Sanchez, one of the conspirators' hitmen uses a Hotchkiss "Type Universal" submachine gun.
During the attempted murder of Miguel Sanchez (E01), one of the conspirators' killers uses an Uzi submachine gun. Uzi also uses one of the killers during the second (and successful) attempt (E06).
During the attempted murder of Miguel Sanchez, Sanchez's bodyguards use Sa 26 submachine guns. Sa 26 SMGs are also used by the majority of the soldiers during the military coup.
Heckler & Koch MP5K
During the second attempt on Miguel Sanchez's life (E06), one of the conspirators' hitmen (Vladimir Bratanov) uses an MP5K submachine gun.
One of the conspirators' hired killers uses a Sterling submachine gun.
During the attempted murder of Miguel Sanchez, one of the killers uses an ArmaLite AR-10 battle rifle. AR-10 rifles also later are used by some soldiers during the military coup. Most of them, if not all, seem to be the "Guatemalan" model (one of the rarest serial versions; only about 500 were made).
During the military coup (E06), one of the soldiers is seen with a Gewehr 43 rifle.
L1A1 rifles are used by some soldiers during the military coup.
During the military coup, one of the soldiers uses a ZB-39 LMG.
What appears to be a PKM machine gun is mounted on a replica of the FMC M113 APC.
During the military coup, one of the soldiers uses a rocket launcher that appears to be an M9 "Bazooka".
The weapon, used by a killer (E06), is a non-firing movie prop that was specially made for the 1986 film Interception (Perekhvat). It uses parts of various real guns (some of which were taken from a Heckler & Koch G3). Later this movie prop was used in several other Soviet/Russian movies.
