Trivia

The 105mm artillery support that provided the danger close fire mission mentioned in this film on Operation Abilene was not from the US Army but from the 161st Battery Royal New Zealand Artillery. This same unit is also featured in the 2019 film, "Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan", which features a battle that took place 4 months later in the same province during 1966, against the same 274th and 275th North Vietnamese Army Regiments as this film.
