I recently picked up this on DVD but only managed to watch the first 15 mins so far. I don't want to thread to get into a debate on the rights or wrongs of the film, but to concentrate on the hardware on display if possible, which I guess is another "wrong"!

The opening scene checkpoint is manned by troops in Humvees (looks like 1114s) backed up by a Challanger!!! Is the rest going to be as inaccurate?

Cheers,
Sean

Yer, I think they used Challenger 1's in it, certainly the box cover has a chally 1 on it, guess it was the only tank they could get their hands on.
