Jojo Rabbit is a 2019 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Taika Waititi and was based on the Christine Leunens novel "Caging Skies". Roman Griffin Davis stars in the film as Johannes "Jojo" Betzler, a Hitler Youth member who discovers that his mother Rosie (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. He must then question his beliefs, while dealing with the intervention of his imaginary friend, a fanciful version of Adolf Hitler (portrayed by Waititi). The film's cast includes Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, and Sam Rockwell. Jojo Rabbit would go on to be nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Johansson, with Waititi receiving the Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
The following weapons were used in the film Jojo Rabbit:
Fraulein Rahm (Rebel Wilson) holds a Luger P08 throughout the film. She is seen trying to offer the pistol to Jojo, then she is seen holding it in the conference room and during the battle, she tries to hand it to Yorki, Jojo's friend.
During the battle, a one-handed Volksturm fighter appears to be armed with a late 19th century Austrian Rast Gasser 1898 (or maybe a Belgian rip-off).
German soldiers are seen armed with the MP40 throughout the battle.
During the battle sequences, an extra and a little girl can be seeing holding a MP 3008, a limited production SMG copied from the Sten Gun to arm the Volkssturm with a cheap and effective automatic gun.
PPSh-41s are in the hands of several Soviet soldiers in the last scenes.
The Soviet soldier that captures Jojo has a PPS-43 with wooden grips, as it should have during wartime.
Several American soldiers escorting prisoners are seen armed with the M1A1 Thompson submachine gun.
Rifles and Carbines
Throughout the film the Karabiner 98k, being the main issue rifle of the German Army, can be see in the hands of several characters and extras.
Several Volkssturm units during the battle carry the Mauser Gewehr 1898, a WW1 era rifle reused in the last months of the war as a last ditch measure to arm militias.
The Sturmgewehr 44 is carried by several German soldiers
Mosin Nagant Rifle
The Mosin Nagant Rifle can be seen clearly in the hands of several Volkssturm fighters (this is not a historical error, since by the end of WWII, the militias of the Third Reich were armed with anything at hand, included some of the millions of Mosin Nagant Rifles captured during Operation Barbarossa) and of some Red Army soldiers.
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III
A Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III is seen in the hands of a militia fighter, most likely another captured weapon distributed to the Volkssturm.
Most US soldiers in the movie carry M1 Garand rifles.
Several M1 Carbines are carried by US soldiers
German forces use the MG42 throughout the battle. Yorki asks Jojo to help him bring an MG42 along with some ammo to the frontline. Fraulein Rahm (Rebel Wilson) is also seen taking up the MG42 while engaging the opposing forces. In this scene, the weapon likely is an airsoft replica, since it has a strange plastic block in the action. Also, it sounds like the MG42 used by Frau Rahm has a very low rate of fire (likely a choice made in post production).
Browning Automatic Rifle
A soldier carries the M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle while escorting Gestapo prisoners.
While Jojo is being captured, in the background is a Soviet soldier with a DP-28 LMG.
In the aftermath of the battle, US troops drive around town in a Jeep with a Browning M1919A4 machine gun mounted on it.
The Browning M2HB machine gun is seen mounted on several US armored vehicles. Later, a US Jeep with a Browning M2HB mounted on it is seen parked on the side of a road for maintenance.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
Jojo and several other Hitler Youth boys can be seen throughout the film using the Model 24 Stielhandgranate.
A Panzerschreck is seen carried by Yorki and another child. When Yorki stops to greet Jojo, he drops the Panzerschreck, causing it to fire accidentally. Later, it's in the hands of a woman fighting in the battle.
Panzerfaust rocket launchers are seen in the hands of militia throughout the movie. Cheap and easy to use, these were widespread among the Volkssturm.
10.5 cm leichte Feldhaubitze 18/40
An abandoned Feldhaubitze/Gebirgshaubitze 40 Howitzer can briefly be seen at the end of the movie.
In the aftermath of the battle, several M8 "Greyhound" armored cars are seen.
M5 Half track
The M5 "Half-track" carrier is also seen used by US forces, often with the Browning M2HB mounted on top.
M36 "Jackson" Tank Destroyer
The M36 "Jackson" Tank Destroyer, a 90mm Gun Motor Carriage, also is seen used by US forces.
