Still, if your film just ''has'' to have a full-sized aircraft carrier, where else can one turn? There are options for creative filmmakers. For instance, TheAsylum filmed its ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' knockoff ''[[TheMockbuster American Warships]]'' on a museum ship, and CGI can accomplish a lot. But for sheer accuracy and time-saving, Pentagon backing remains an enticing option.

* Possibly the most epic example: Sergey Bondarchuk's 1968 ''WarAndPeace'' movie, featuring horses and entire ''military units'' (as well as a special "cinematographical cavalry corps") provided by the Soviet Ministry of Defense. But then, the Soviet Ministry of Defense was very fond of this trope in general, often providing soldiers for patriotic war films.
** In fact, the aforementioned last real cavalry regiment in Soviet and then Russian army is really kept almost entirely for the filmmaking purposes. It is even unofficially called "Mosfilm regiment" after the country's largest film studio is is usually subordinated to.

* For most of the latter half of the 20th century, the city of Chicago rarely permitted television shows or movies to use their police department's insignias, reportedly after ''TheBluesBrothers'' mucked up their reputation. Shows and movies often had to make due with CaptainErsatz versions of the CPD (''Series/HillStreetBlues'' was supposedly set in a metropolis resembling Chicago that was never named). ''Series/TheChicagoCode'', on the other hand, depicted the CPD quite accurately and was filmed on location. One possible explanation for the change was the fact that while the original ban was put into place by Mayor Richard J. Daley, his son and successor Richard M. Daley left office shortly before the show began production.
