A Good Lad (Slavnyy malyy), also known as Novgorodtsy (Those of Novgorod) is a 1943 Soviet war movie directed by Boris Barnet. Claude, a pilot of Free French Air Force squadron that serves together with Red Army Air Force, is shot down in air battle but lands in the forest, controlled by the Soviet partisan unit. The partisans help Claude to complete the mission to find the heavily camouflaged German airfield.

The following weapons were used in the film A Good Lad (Slavnyy malyy):
