Courage (a direct translation of the original title Muzhestvo) is a Soviet 1939 B&W adventure movie, directed by Mikhail Kalatozov. Aleksey Tomilin (Oleg Zhakov) is a pilot on a mail plane in Central Asian region of USSR, close to the Afgan border. In one flight he lands in a local village where he is suddenly captured by a group of armed saboteurs, disguised as natives. They demand Tomilin to fly over the border, bringing their leader Mustafa Hajji in Kabul. Using his outstanding flying skill, Tomilin manages to render his dangerous passenger innocuous and land on the Soviet airfield.

The following weapons were used in the film Courage (Muzhestvo):
