Corrected entry: When the 2 Delta snipers are defending the 2nd downed Black Hawks, the Delta snipers, Gary Gordan carries a camo-painted M4, and Randy Shughart carries a Vietnam M14 right? When Gary Gordan fires, and then reports "reloading" for the 1st time, it changes to one guy holding a black M16 firing at the crowd. Who is that? Neither one of the Delta snipers carry a black full-size M16.
Corrected entry: In many parts of the movie, you see the APCs getting constantly riddled with bullets by Somalian rebels. However, in certain camera shots were you see the APCs rumbling back and forth from the base, they are completely free of bullet dents.
Corrected entry: On the Delta Force uniform right sleeve is sewn an American flag. Frequently throughout the fighting some uniforms have the flag sewn on backwards (with the blue field and stars on the right). Either the costumer had non-Americans sew the uniform insignia without correct instructions; or, it is some kind of statement by the film maker. This would never happen on regulation uniforms.
Corrected entry: After Blackburn fell from the chopper, Matt quickly puts on his goggles to prepare to rope down. You can see he wore gloves on both hands. After Matt roped down, he attended to Blackburn. Watch his right hand placed on Blackburn's chest - he's not wearing his glove.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the informant parks his car outside the correct building and raises the hood to check the steam etc, an OH-6 Little Bird can be seen in the background. At this point in the movie, the only aircraft over Mog would have been the C2 Black Hawk and the P-3 Orion (not actually shown in the movie). The attacking Black Hawks, MH-6s and OH-6s have not yet taken off.
Corrected entry: In one scene two helicopters fly over troops on the ground. The helicopters are OH-58 Kiowas (Jet Rangers) not UH-60/MH-60 Blackhawks or OH-6/AH-6/MH-6 Cayuses (Little Birds or Loaches).
