Devotion (2022 film)
Work In Progress
Devotionis a 2022 Korean War film directed by J.D. Dillard and starring Jonathan Majors as Ensign Jeese Brown, the first African-American US naval aviator. Glen Powell stars as Lt. Tom Hudner, a fellow US naval aviator in his squadron who strikes up a friendship with Brown while serving together during the conflict. The feature was based on the 2015 book Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship, and Sacrifice written by Adam Makos and was released in the US to theaters in November 2022.
The following weapons were used in the film Devotion:
Smith & Wesson Model M&P
An Arisaka rifle variant is used by PVA soldiers. This is historically feasible, as numerous Arisaka rifles leftover from Japan's occupation and wars in Korea and China were used by Communist forces in both nations.
The M1 Garand is used by US Marines fighting in the Chosin Reservoir.
The M1 Carbine is used by Marines in the film.
The Chinese PVA sniper uses what appears to be a scoped M1903A4 Springfield sniper rifle.
Mosin Nagant M91/30
Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifles are also carried by many of the Chinese troops.
The Browning M2HB machine gun is seen used by US Marines.
DShK heavy machine gun
PVA forces on the Chinese side of the Yalu River use the DShK heavy machine gun for anti-air defense.
Fighter plane armaments
The MiG-15 fighter that engages in a dogfight with VF-32 has a pair of Nudelman-Rikhter NR-23 cannons as its primary weapons. An actual MiG-15 was used for the film, from the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California.
Browning M2 Aircraft
The Browning M2 Aircraft appears as the primary armament of the F4U-4 Corsair fighters, mounted in groups of three in each wing for a total of six.
