The soldier outside the HQ bunker who spots Toad carries and then aims an AK-47 style rifle, supplied to communist forces by the Soviet Union and China. Using enemy weapons would normally be against regulations, although it was not unheard of for US soldiers in Viet Nam to obtain and use weapons like the AK-47.

..this sequel is actually pretty good, the different film style for each segment works (especially the hand held camera style for the viet nam segment)...I'd rather watch this than most of the crap lucas puts out these days ...milner's character was fleshed out a bit more here from the first film, and to good effect ...my only complaint is that each segment feels like it should be a year later than the date indicated on screen (eg....no one in 1966 San Francisco would have ANY idea who Jimi Hendrix was, and those student protests on campus were more common AFTER 1967)
