Iron Sky is a 2012 Finnish/German/Australian science fiction comedy directed by Timo Vuorensola starring Julia Dietze, Christopher Kirby, Götz Otto, Udo Kier, and Peta Sergeant. The film is the first "real" film by Vuorensola, who had previously made Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning with a few friends. Ten percent of the film's funding was crowdsourced from fans, with the rest provided by traditional sources. It spawned a sequel, 2019's Iron Sky: The Coming Race

The following weapons were used in the film Iron Sky:


Walther P38

Various characters are seen with Walther P38s.

Walther P38 pistol (manufactured at the Mauser Factory) - World War II dated - 9x19mm
Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) shoots the first astronaut after he stumbles upon the Nazi moonbase.

Wolfgang Kortzfleisch (Udo Kier) with his P38.


A behind-the-scenes featurrette showed the filming of the scene above. Surprising, a real blank-firing P38 was used rather than CGI.

The armorer loads the P38 before handing it to the actor.

Walther PP

Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) uses a Walther PP at the end of the film. Klaus later takes it from her.

Luger P08

A CGI Luger P08 is seen in a promo.

As the film was partially crowd-funded, the promos were needed to bring in donations.


Double Barreled Shotgun

A farmer (uncredited) opens fire on the moon Nazis with a Double Barreled Shotgun when they land on her property.

Submachine guns

Modified MP38

Many of the moon Nazis use modified MP38 submachine guns.

The MP38. The sub-machine gun of the German Military Before 1940. It was still used in small quantities in 1941 and 1942.
"Moon Fuhrer" Kortzfleisch has his troops stand down. (Those are moon Nazis, and not just some really dedicated cosplayers).

Bizarrely, due to the reliability issues and other considerations, the previous close-up shot was actually made by firing an AK-47 with the barrel of a prop MP38 welded on.


MP40s are seen in a promo.

Gun rack

The President of the United States (a parody of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin) has a gun rack with several rifles in the White House, but they cannot be identified.
