Sakura Taisen: École de Paris (2003).


The following weapons were used in the OVA Sakura Taisen: École de Paris:


Pistols

FN Model 1910

The FN Model 1910 is used by Paris Prefecture police detective Jim Évian as his main sidearm. The physical features of the pistol (such as the markings), unfortunately, were not shown in the OVA series.

Revolvers

Revolver Cannon

The revolver cannon makes an appearance at the end of "The City of Love", hidden underneath the Arc de Triomphe. In the Sakura Taisen 3 game, it's stated that the cannon is used as a long-range device to launch Kobus and supplies throughout continental Europe in situations where there is a need to send them to far-flung countries in the continent in case of a confirmed demon appearance. Its appearance is a shoutout done by writer Satoru Akahori to Samurai Pizza Cats, one of his previous works.

Submachine Guns

Gabriel

One of the signature weapons of Erica Fontaine in the Sakura Taisen universe, she is armed with the Gabriel submachine gun. It's only seen in the episode "Flowers at Daybreak". It appears to be visually based partially on the Bergmann MP18 as a base.

Koubu-F submachine gun

Erica's Koubu-F uses a Koubu-F-sized submachine gun as its main weapon as seen in "The City of Love". Like the Gabriel, it has some visual basis on the Bergmann MP18.

Sniper Rifles

Arisaka Type 38

The Arisaka Type 38 was used by Norimichi Sakomizu, Japanese ambassador to France, in "The Black Cat and the Bad Girl" as part of the plan to forcibly recruit Lobelia into the Groupe Fleur de Paris. It appears to have a Unertl-like scope mounted on its receiver with a crosshair-type reticle. Ambassador Sakomizu is shown to be a crack shot, using the rifle to fire a special anti-spirit energy bullet in order to paralyze Lobelia before Paris Prefecture policemen could subdue her.

The crosshair-type reticle would most likely be anachronistic, since it was not used in the pre-World War II years.
With a closer look, it appears that the scope's external features looks too anachronistic as well.

Rocket Launchers

M72 LAW

The M72 LAW makes an anachronistic appearance in the "The Black Cat and the Bad Girl" at the hands of Paris Prefecture police officers as part of a plan launched by Isabel "Grand-Mère" Lilac to forcibly recruit Lobelia into the Groupe Fluer de Paris.

Grenades

Tear Gas Rifle Grenade

Tear Gas Rifle Grenades were used by Paris Prefecture police officers in World War I-era gas masks and anti-heat resistant suits in the sewers of Paris in "The Black Cat and the Bad Girl".

Others
