The film was loosely based on the evacuation of the 225 foreign nationals and almost 600 Chinese citizens from Yemen's southern port of Aden during the 2015 Yemeni Civil War in late March. See more »
During the fight against the Somali pirates, one of the men on the helicopter has a silencer on his weapon. Given the fact that a helicopter makes far more noise than a silencer, as well as the fact that the man with the rifle is not trying to stay hidden, a silencer would be only a hindrance, since the muzzle velocity of silenced weapons is lesser than that of unsilenced ones.

War, war never changes.
I finished the movie yesterday, still fell unreal. It's like a civilian first time experiencing real war, not the kind of wars that were shown in the Hollywood war movies, but an extremely realistic one, the one that you will experience when you walk right into the middle of an ongoing armed conflict . I have watched countless war movies from all over the world but I have never felt the way like I had on yesterday. I heard from my Chinese friends about modern Chinese young netizens love to see China gets into a war with other countries to demonstrate the ability of their Military force. I strongly advice them to see this movie, to see what will really happen in a war.
