Captain Miller: He better be worth it. He better go home and cure a disease, or invent a longer-lasting light bulb.
The American troops at Ramelle bridge are supposed to be fighting the 2nd SS Panzer Division. Two things wrong: the 2nd SS never had Tiger tanks in Normandy, having turned over their Tiger battalion to another unit in Russia prior to being transferred to France. Second, in the scenes with the Tigers, a 1st SS Panzerkorps insignia (Crossed Keys) is seen on the front right hull of the Tigers; 2nd SS Panzer Division was never a part of 1st SS Panzerkorps.

What you don't know is that it was REAL vomit you see - it was caught on camera perfectly and it was kept. See more...

The entry you are marking as a duplicate is:
|Title||Saving Private Ryan|

A few scenes later, the camera shows all eight of them marching on to the next town, only in a far away camera shot so it's hard to see.|
