According to the book "Bill Collins Presents The Golden Years of Hollywood" by Bill Collins
, "Apart from three or four large interiors, the film was shot entirely on-location. The film's producer, David L. Wolper
, obtained permission to use the Davle Bridge, twenty-four kilometers (fifteen miles) south of Prague on the Vltava River. Much of the filming, however, was carried out in the Czechoslovakian town of Most, one hundred kilometers (sixty-two miles) northwest of Prague." See more
Early in the movie, Lt. Phil Hartman and Cpl. Grebs try a daring run toward a farmhouse which is occupied by an enemy anti-tank troop. They start the run in a captured German vehicle, equipped with a rear mounted machine gun. The car also has a very distinctive pair of red lamps on the front. As the car speeds into battle with the German defenses, it is somehow transformed into a different vehicle, for when it arrives at the farmhouse yard we see it has lost the gun mount, gained a wiper on the passenger's side, and the red lamps have disappeared.

Look, uh, Hartman, I know it's been a hard blow. It's always a shock to lose a buddy, a man you worked with and fought with. I mean, we're all human. I guess what I'm trying to say is... I realize Captain Colt was your friend. He was my friend, too.
Lt. Phil Hartman
Would you, uh... care to rephrase that, Lieutenant?
Lt. Phil Hartman
You don't have any friends out here, Major. Neither do I. We can't afford them. Neither one of us.
