TriviaEdit

  • There is a mistake in the scene where he is wounded. It shows him lying on the side of the tank with his leg apparently blown off, but just before he is shot, you can clearly see he has both legs. He is identified as the man with his leg blown off, because you can just about see goggles on his helmet.
