All the Lafayette Escadrille airmen, including Blaine Rawlings (James Franco), Eugene Skinner (Abdul Salis), Eddie Beagle (David Ellison), Reed Cassidy (Martin Henderson), William Jensen (Philip Winchester), Nunn (Pip Pickering), and Lyle Porter (Michael Jibson) have Vickers Aircraft Machine Guns on their planes.

Maxim LMG 08/15 "Spandau"
The Germans use air-cooled Maxim LMG 08/15 machine guns on their Fokker DR-1 triplanes. Beagle tells the other airmen that they are "9 mm Spandaus", which is incorrect as they are actually the standard German 7.92x57 mm Mauser ammunition.
