Corrected entry: During the scene at the Arapaho National Forest sign, the soldier translates, "Roosevelt leading imperialist army and cowboys putting down a great peasant uprising... 35,000 dead... etc. etc." Yet the sign only reads, "Founded by Roosevelt under the forest service act of 1908 comprises acres of virgin timberland of..." No info of any battle is displayed.Kurt Christensen
Corrected entry: When Jed drives into town to escape the Russians and hits a car, you can see the police and spectators farther down the street, where they had closed off the street for filming. (00:07:40)
Corrected entry: In the scene at the beginning where the black teacher is shot, right after a Russian soldier starts shooting at the students through the windows of the school, when this happens the camera cuts to show all of the students in the room dropping down for protection, then the camera cuts back to the soldier firing again. The camera then once again cuts back to the students but now there is a dead student lying on the windows that had ducked in the prior cut before.
Corrected entry: When our heroes (aided by the downed F-15 pilot) attack a Soviet forward airfield, the Soviets are seen to have Yak-38 "Forger" V/STOL (Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft stationed there. Trouble is, the Yak-38 was operated exclusively by the Soviet Navy, and was designed operate off of the Kiev Class light carriers. This aircraft would not would not be deployed so far inland.

Corrected entry: After Toni is shot when Jed gives her the grenade he puts in her right hand, later when the Russian finds her the grenade isn't in her right hand. When he picks her up it falls from her left side & rolls underneath her. (01:32:56)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Patrick Swayse laments the loss of his best friend (who he just executed for treason), Patrick sits on a log in the snow and cries. For a brief shining moment a large snot bubble appears out of his right nostril then gets sucked back into his nose.
Corrected entry: It is remarked that dissidents have been taken away to an internment camp and no one in town is even allowed to talk about them. However the boys (including Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen) stroll up to the edge of the fence and talk to the inmates for several minutes without being approached by any guards, even when the spot-light is briefly turned on them during their conversation. (00:23:25 - 00:25:15)
Corrected entry: The Mayor's kid, while part of the rebel guerrilla 'Wolverines' consisting of a total of 8 closely-knit people, somehow managed to sneak into town, talk to his dad, get caught by the Russians and imprisoned, interrogated, implanted with a bug, and sent back to his group, and none of them noticed he was gone during that time.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the downed F-15 pilot is discovered, he's carrying a revolver. Fighter pilots are all issued Beretta 9mm pistols in their survival gear. (00:53:15)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Darryl and the Russian soldier get executed, Darryl gets shot 3 times at point blank range with an AK-47. At that range the bullets should have passed through his body and exited out of his back.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the freedom fighters are attacked by the Soviet helicopter gunships, one of them fires a rocket from an RPG-7 at one of them. It does little damage - it should have been blown out of the sky. The RPG-7 is an anti-tank weapon, so even a heavily armored helicopter shouldn't be able to withstand a hit from one.
