Czech vz. 24 Mauser

Volchok (Anton Bogdanov) is seen acquiring a vz. 24 Czech Mauser, from an officer of the Gemeindepolizei, the municipal police forces of wartime Nazi Germany. It later becomes a Vz. 33 carbine instead in a continuity error.

Nikolay raises his Vz. 33 at the climax of the movie. Note the bolt is now a turned-down version despite the fact it should be the same rifle acquired from the German police officer.

Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k is the main battle rifle of the German forces during WWII.

T-34-76 Model 1941

In the first act of the movie, Nikolay and his crew operate a late-1941 version of the T-34-76, armed with the M1940 F-34 76mm gun. It would have had two mounted Degtyaryov DT machine guns, one mounted coaxially and one hull machine gun, though it has only enough crew to man one of them.

The second act of the movie features a T-34-85 captured by the Germans and later given to the Russian crew to participate in their war games. It would have the ZiS-S-53 85mm cannon along with two Degtyaryov DT machineguns, one mounted coaxially and one hull machine gun, but none are fired due to the Germans removing any available ammunition from their mounts after they had captured it earlier.

The battle-worn T-34-85 is unveiled to the tankers. It is missing its driver's hatch; a possible penetration point for this defeated tank since no other damage was seen during the tank's refurbishment.
The newly-repaired and painted T-34-85 is brought out for a test run to the background tune of Swan Lake.

Panzer II

Several Panzer II light tanks are present in the 1941 assault on Nefedovo supporting their Panzer III medium tanks. It is most likely the early A to C variant, as identified by the older 5 roadwheel suspension. It would have a 2 cm KwK 30 gun as well as MG34 Panzerlauf machine guns mounted in the turret.

A Panzer II breaks off from the column to assist the III's in engaging a suspected Russian AT gun.

Panzer III

Klaus Jäger commands a Panzer III Ausf. H nicknamed "Dietrich" during the 1941 assault on Nefedovo. It can be identified as such due to the 5 cm KwK 38 gun and earlier model turret resembling the early Panzer IVs. Several other Panzer III medium tanks, possibly L or M variants (due to the extra armour plating) are present in the village battle supporting the German infantry advance.

Panzer IV Ausf. H

A single Panzer IV H medium tank is seen parked at the tank training ground during the demonstration of the repaired T-34-85. It would have the 7.5 cm KwK 40 main gun, as well as two MG34 Panzerlauf machine guns, one mounted coaxially and one hull machine gun. It is probably a mockup due to the wider chassis and different track configuration.

The T-34 faces its German counterpart, the Pz. IV.

Panther Ausf. D

Several Panther tanks are first seen in the tank training facility in 1944. Klaus Jäger later takes command of one of these tanks and installs a Sperber ("Sparrow") FG 1250 infra-red nightvision device in preparation for night combat. They would have the 7.5 cm KwK 42 L/70 main gun, as well as two MG34 Panzerlauf machine guns, one mounted coaxially and one hull machine gun. Behind-the-scenes reveal that they are in fact mockups, based off the chassis of T-55 tanks.
