Corrected entry: When the SEALs blow up a small boat near the end of the film, the explosive power of the hand grenade is extremely exaggerated. A SEAL tosses an anti-personel grenade into the boat, which then explodes into a fireball. This type of grenade spews shrapnel, but does not explode with the power shown. If the big explosion were the boat's fuel tank there would be two explosions. First a small explosion(the grenade) then a larger secondary explosion(the fuel), not just one gigantic fireball.
Corrected entry: When "God" has his .50 calibre sniper rifle with an "infrared sight" mounted on it he is able to see the bad guys through a brick wall? The thermal images of the bad guys would be blocked by the walls, which would show as a cooler hue. Secondarily, such a colored thermal imaging system is not available for such a weapon. A standard infrared sight would be gray-scale in perspective.
Corrected entry: When the seal team is jumping out of the C130 they were wearing helmets and the helmets had their names on them. Even though they were jumping 12 miles off shore and they ditched the helmets as soon as they hit the water they would not have their names on them in case something went wrong and they were captured with the helmets. If they are captured they do not want to be identified.jaws65
Corrected entry: At the end of the film as the SEALs are being chased from their car out to the sea. Charlie Sheen wrestles the terrorist leader underwater. Yet despite running, swimming and being fired upon, he somehow finds the time to change from combat boots to swim fins. He also proceeds to kill the terrorist by slashing his throat although no cut is ever made and no blood is seen.
Corrected entry: As they are parachuting they are seen free falling with combat boots on. After the parachutes have opened and they are about to drop into the sea they have fins on.
Corrected entry: According to US Navy Uniform Regulations, Naval personnel are prohibited from putting their hands in the uniform pocket. Yet, Curran put his hands in his all-weather coat pockets all the time he was talking with Chief's fiancee during Chief's funeral.
Corrected entry: For disobeying a direct order to stay put, and consequently causing Chief's death, Hawkins should be court-martialed. While being investigated, he would be barred from going on missions.
Corrected entry: Both Curran's and Hawkin's hairstyles are definitely not military regulation - too bulky.
Corrected entry: When the SEAL team jumps from the plane at six miles up, they are all wearing goggles typically used while snow skiing. Then, when we see the SEAL team underwater, the goggles they are wearing have changed to a underwater-type diving mask.
Corrected entry: Even though most of the time all the SEALS are using the same type of weapon, the noise made each time they're fired varies hugely.
