** While the actors may have been using the MP40, the weapon in question was preceded by the MP38 (1938), which was itself preceded by the MP36 (1936). Each subsequent design was a simplification of its predecessor.

* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: Various soldiers and other armed militants are equipped with Walther P38 pistols or [=MP40=] submachine guns, guns that did not exist in 1936. The [=MP40=] was first produced in 1940 and the P38 was first produced in 1938. Indy is at two separate points seen with variations of the Browning Hi-Power; the first time, in the bar shootout, is a bit of a stretch but still at least possible (the weapon had entered production the year before, though at the time every one of them was for military contracts, on top of FN reaching an agreement with Colt to not sell the pistol in the United States). The second time on the ''Bantu Wind'' is pure AnachronismStew, however - he's using a Canadian variant, the Inglis Hi-Power (distinguished by a noticeable hump below the rear sight) that didn't enter production until 1944. Also near the climax of the movie, Jones is seen holding an RPG-2 rocket launcher, which was not produced until 1949. No military even ''had'' handheld or shoulder-fired rocket launchers in 1936; they came about during the war to replace the older anti-tank rifles.
