Deliberate mistake: As the Soviet tank starts rolling, the tank commander obviously uses a hidden step to mount the tank. Soviet T-55/T-62 type tanks did not have steps for mounting by the wheels and axles; to mount a rolling tank using the moving wheels or spinning axles would result in the mounter being immediately crushed and killed.

Factual error: MacKenzie is referred to as "Gunnery Sergeant". This is not a rank used by British and Commonwealth forces. He actually wears the rank insignia of a Flight Sergeant.

Other mistake: When Hambleton comes across the hooch where he gets attacked, upon spotting the hooch he racks the slide on his 1911, loading a round in to the chamber. When he is fighting the villager he racks the slide again to load his pistol.
