Les Morfalous (literally The Greedy-Guts, in French argot) is a 1984 French action comedy directed by Henri Verneuil and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo as Sgt. Pierre Augagneur of French Foreign Legion. The story takes place in French Tunisia in 1943 when a platoon of FFL is ordered to convoy gold from a bank in a town which is under German attack.
The following weapons were used in the film Les Morfalous:
A Luger P08 is a personal weapon of German tank officer Cpt. Dieterle (Pierre Semmler). Sgt. Pierre Augagneur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) disarms Cpt. Dieterle several times during the movie and takes his Luger.
The illegal gold trader (Junior John David) has a pistol tucked into pants. Only grip can be seen.
Sten Mark II
Several French legionaires including Sgt. Pierre Augagneur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) carry Sten Mk II submachine guns.
German soldiers are armed with MP40 submachine guns. After legionaries killed two of them, they take German uniform and MP40s.
MAT-49s are seen in hands of several French soldiers in the final scene. This weapon is anachronistic for 1943.
French legionnaires in the opening scene and French soldiers in the final scene are mostly armed with MAS-36 rifles.
Several German soldiers are seen with Karabiner 98k rifles.
Boissier (Michel Creton) and Augagneur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) use a Bren MG in the opening scene.
When the German soldiers attack the French legionnaires, they use MG34 machine guns.
Madsen Model 1946
Madsen Model 1946 machine guns are seen mounted on the trucks in the opening scene. They are mocked up to resemble belt fed Browning M1919 machine guns by fitting a cosmetic box over the bottom and rear of the receiver, but they can be identified as Madsens by the shape of the top of the receiver and the top loading magazine well visible on the left side of the top of the weapon. In order to make the gun appear to be belt fed the last round on the ammunition belt has simply been hooked into the magazine well, which on the Madsen is coincidentally a shape which easily allows this.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
When legionaries dress German uniform, Sgt. Pierre Augagneur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) carries a Model 24 Stielhandgranate but never uses it.
A Leuchtpistole flare pistol is used by Germans.
A rocker launcher is seen in hands of French soldiers in the final scene. It is a little blurry and hard to identify. Due to its size it can be M20 "Super Bazooka" or RL-83 Blindicide or some other launcher.
Granatwerfer 34 Mortar
German soldiers use Granatwerfer 34 Mortars during the ambush scene.
SK-105 Kürassier Light Tank
Austrian SK-105 Kürassier light tank (produced in 1970s) acts as a German tank.
Panhard AML 90 Armoured Car
French Panhard AML 90 armoured car (produced in 1960s) acts as a German armoured car.
Howitzer 105 mm M2
Augagneur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and Beral (Jacques Villeret) use 105mm M2 howitzer to destroy the German stronghold.
