Sniper: Weapons of Retaliation
Sniper: Weapons of Retaliation (original title: Snayper. Oruzhie vozmezdiya) is a 2009 Russian-Belarusian war film. The main character is Sr. Lt. (later Maj.) Yashin (Dmitriy Pevtsov), a Soviet officer assigned to first lead a group of Soviet snipers to fight off the German onslaught in Stalingrad and later, in 1945, to combat a German sniper team, guarding Hitler's secret weapon.
The movie was filmed in two versions: the original film and made for TV mini series.
The following weapons were used in the film Sniper: Weapons of Retaliation (Snayper. Oruzhie vozmezdiya):
Karl Kleist (Joachim Paul Assböck) and Berta (Anna Khitrik) carry Luger P08s as their sidearm. Yashin (Dmitriy Pevtsov) also uses a Luger in the final scene.

Soviet officers, including Sr. Lt. Yashin (Dmitriy Pevtsov) and Maj. Osipov (Sergey Belyaev) carry Tokarev TT-33 pistols. These Tokarevs are postwar productions noted by the straight slide grooves, anachronistic for the time period the movie is set in.

Yashin (Dmitriy Pevtsov
) commandeers a dead soldier's PPSh-41. An interesting note is that in the scene before, Yashin pulls back the bolt, yet it is seen here with the bolt still forward (which would render the weapon unable to fire), which means the PPSh portrayed in the image could just be a prop with fixed parts.
