Based on events that were no doubt exaggerated and propagandists this is still a great film. Made on a budget of 1.7 million the battle scenes are excellent. Very little story and minimal (though adequate) character development the big star is the battle itself around which the movie is built. A small group of Infantryman must hold a trench line against a Panzer Attack. They have two anti tank rifles and 2 37mm AT guns. Artillery support is minimal. The German tanks are MKIIIs and a few Short barreled MKIVs. They may be CGI but I think most scenes use scratch built and remote controlled models. Some have to real? Extremely well done regardless.
Some of the best battle scenes in any movie. I highly recommend this film. The Russian people bore the brunt of that conflict it's good to see them featured in something other than a corny, over the top effort.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
