Mine picture

Factual error: Scout Sniper Mike on a desert mission steps on a mine only to realise he has done so before stepping off it. The whole movie is about him standing in the desert with his left foot on the mine (waiting for rescue), and fighting against thirst, sand storms, wild dogs, the enemy and so on. The problem is, there is no mine (maybe never was) where someone has to step off it before it explodes. All mechanisms are configured to explode when someone steps on it.
