Another classic that deserves more attention if not for the amount of different weapons they used in the film.

Dayle Dye who negotiated the purchase of the tanks was a consultant on the film. He may be better known for working on "Platoon" "BOB" and "Saving Private Ryan" etc.
I also find "The Beast" interesting for some of the actors involved like Steven Bauer (Scarface, Breaking Bad) and Jason Patric, I didn't realize he was in "The Lost Boys" until I watched it a couple of times.
