I just saw the film; if anyone else got a good look at the "tracker rounds" bolt-action rifle, calling it a Model 70 is kind of (pardon the pun) a shot in the dark on my part, as the scene was dark and the rifle didn't have a lot of screentime. Any help IDing it would be great...MrOshimida27 00:58, 18 June 2011 (CDT)

Didn't I hear the kid call it a Sako? Maybe it's a Colt-Sako?-ACE

Just watched the film last night. The kid says "Sako, bolt action, 30-06" and then is cut off by his friends.

Yeah, I knew he said something before the caliber, just didn't make it out clearly. Thanks MrOshimida27 12:37, 8 July 2011 (CDT)

Spare cap

I can't find this shot in the final film, not even in the deleted scenes. I assume it's from the evacuation scene, since almost none of the shots with armored vehicles take place in the daytime. --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:40, 18 February 2013 (EST)

US Army soldiers enter the town on an APC.

"Sako" rifle

I'm not saying we shouldn't trust the ID of a 12-year old seeing the rifle briefly in the dark in a stressful situation, but is this really a "Sako .30-06, bolt-action" rifle? --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:40, 18 February 2013 (EST)

Colonel Nelec opens up the case holding the rifle.

Overmyer with the rifle.
The "tracker round" for example, looks a heck of a lot bigger than a .30-06.

Cap gun

Just for the sake of completion, the cap gun. --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:40, 18 February 2013 (EST)

Unknown tank

Does anyone have any idea what kind of tank this is? (This is from the deleted scenes.)

It's followed by two M41 Walker Bulldogs and an M113 APC.
Swiss-designed Panzer 61. --Markit (talk) 13:45, 18 February 2013 (EST)
Wow, I didn't think Switzerland developed their own tanks. Thanks! --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:05, 18 February 2013 (EST)
