* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: For some baffling reason, the English dub gives all the enlisted men American accents -- california accents, and they all sound the same. All the officers have thick, subpar false Russian accents. This troper, who speaks both languages, advises using the Russian voice track, as the English is frankly painful. And the Russian just sounds so much more badass.

* VeteranInstructor: Dygalo served his time in Afganistan and due to his wounds is unsuitable for combat duty. But when he pushes his recruits hard, he does it to at least partially prepare them for all the nasty things, rather than out of malice. Later, when they are deployed, Khokhol plays this role, giving basic survival tips before they even leave the base.

* TokenMinority: Kurbashi, the only non-white soldier. His nationality is never exactly specified, but his actor Amadu Mamadakov, is a Mongol. Provided Kurbashi is from the Soviet Union, he could come from one of the central Asian republics.

** On a meta-level, while the Afghan fighters aren't treated sympathetically, the film takes the effort to show that they are experts in guerrilla warfare who know how to take advantage of the landscape against an opponent with superior firepower.

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: This is probably the only film ever made where Soviet guns regularly jamms, overheat and have integrity problems. It's used both as PlayedForLaughs ''and'' RealityIsUnrealistic.
