A clearer view of the M60 from a promotional still. The marines in the film are dressed more like US soldiers than South Korean marines, wearing M81 BDUs, PASGT vests/helmets, RBA vests, etc., which are not typically worn by South Korean troops. Reportedly the ROKMC disapproved the of the film's portrayal of them and thus the marines in the film are wearing US-spec gear and uniforms instead of authentic ROKMC ones.
