Kto zaplatit za udachu? is a 1980 Soviet action movie by Konstantin Khudyakov. The movie was never released with an English title; Who Will Pay for Fortune? is a direct translation of the Russian title. The story takes place during Russian civil war and shows three men - the Red sailor, the White Cossack and the "neutral" gambler - who had to unite for a common goal.

The following weapons were used in the film Who Will Pay for the Fortune? (Kto zaplatit za udachu?):
