In one scene, a North Korean soldier can be seen armed with an AK-74M, aiming it at the protagonists when they meet North Korean Director of Communications Sook (Diana Bang). This is somewhat inaccurate, as the AK-74M is not used by the military of the DPRK.

Norinco Type 84S-1

One North Korean soldier can be seen armed with a Norinco Type 84S-1, distinguished by the hooded front sight and lightly-curved 5.56mm magazine. While the North Koreans do use the Chinese AK clones, they use the 7.62mm Norinco Type 56, not the Type 84S.

DShK Heavy Machine Gun

A DShK heavy machine gun can be seen mounted on a T-55 tank that Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park) shows off to the protagonists. Movie claims the tank was "a gift from Stalin" despite the fact that earliest T-55 model entered production in 1958, and the starring T-55A entering in 1961, nine years after Stalin's death, and well into the process of de-Stalinization within the Soviet Union. T-55A used in the movie in fact belongs to the 1966 ZTS-Martin production from Czechoslovakia and currently resides in the collection of the Chilliwack Military Education Centre.
