The Vietnam sequence is set in 1965, around the time M16 rifles were introduced. Toad and other American soldiers are armed with later M16A1 rifles (distinguishable by their cylindrical muzzle and 30-round magazines) issued in 1967. While the early M16s were indeed notorious for jamming in Viet Nam's in jungle conditions, the M16A1 was specifically introduced to remedy this problem. See more »
..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)
