The Losers - S5-E2

Factual error: As Sgt. Saunders and his squad dodge artillery fire in the ruined city, modern high-tension electrical towers are shown. Also, no electrical towers whatsoever would have survived a prolonged artillery bombardment without being damaged or destroyed.

The Hell Machine - S3-E28

The Hell Machine - S3-E28

Other mistake: When the German soldiers are on the radio alerting other German units of Americans in a captured German tank, they are using the English word "tank"- the Germans should be using the word "panzer", instead.

The Long Wait - S3-E25

Factual error: The long shots show the supporting tank reversing, but the close up shot of the tank's drive sprocket shows the drive sprocket moving forward, thus the tank should be moving forward, not reversing.

The Duel - S3-E4

Audio problem: Several times the German tank fires its co-ax turret machine gun. There is gunfire flashing, but no machinegun sound.

Trivia: Actor Vic Morrow used a non-firing wooden replica of a Tompson submachine gun due to its lighter weight, thus being easier to carry. He used a heavier blank-firing model when it was required to be fired.
