Other mistake: During the river chase scene the NVA mortarmen drops a round into the tube and you can see it bounce right back out before the special effect that makes it look like the Mortar is firing.
Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the movie Capt. Doyle is being air lifted to the village when the pilot tells him, "We have to take the scenic route." His door gunner immediately tightens his seat belt because he know the pilot is going to do some aerobatics. In the next shot while the helicopter is taking ground fire he stands up and returns fire without ever loosening his seat belt.
Capt. T.C. Doyle: Poole? Can you get me some more of that water buffalo tranquilizer?
David Poole: Really enjoyed that, didn't you Doyle? Linh was right, you ARE weird.
