US Army soldiers at the Dugway Base in Utah were armed with M16A1 rifles, as well as door gunners on the Helicopters.

In a somewhat surprising move, the filmmakers outfitted the US soldiers with M16A1 rifles. Also the helmet covers are O.D. and not woodland and they have the Anti IR Night Camo smocks (and possibly the 6-tone Day Desert camouflage uniforms under the smocks (note the neck/collar section of the soldiers)) from Operation Desert Storm.

Special Forces soldiers were seen armed with IMI Uzi submachine guns throughout the film. Also used by Dr. Laura Baker (Marg Helgenberger) in the final battle with Sil.
