* GrenadeSpam: When the team first tries to capture Othmani, he has a bag of grenades with him and he keeps tossing them behind him as he is making his escape. The team members have to constantly dodge behind cover to escape the blasts.

Added DiffLines:

* ScopeSnipe: Realistically subverted. With Scott and Stonebridge pinned down by El Soldat's men in Southern Algeria, [[spoiler: Kohl and Matlock are sent to either ensure El Soldat gets the triggers, or take them if the opportunity presents itself]]. With [[spoiler: [[ColdSniper Kohl's]]]] rifle fire preventing their escape, [[MissionControl Sinclair, Richmond, and Baxter]] use satellite imagery to give Scott a rough idea of where they are. He then fires twice at their spiderhole, with his second bullet punching through the objective lens of [[spoiler: Kohl's]] rifle optic. We don't see exactly where it ends up, but it doesn't hit anybody in the face. It does solve their sniper problem, though.

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: Kennedy is ordered to execute Mrs. Heath in Kosovo because "It's time you did something to earn your cut." [[spoiler: Instead, he shoots two of Hasani's goons sent with him, hides the old woman safely in the woods, and smuggles a pistol to Stonebridge and Scott. He's actually been sent to infiltrate and investigate Donoghue's unit.]]



* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler: Sergeant Kennedy, who's secretly investigating Donoghue for the US Army, is ''pissed'' when he finds that Scott already killed him, because after three months of seeing the Major's antics up close and playing along, he ''really'' wanted to do it himself]].



* {{Turncoat}}: [[spoiler: Donoghue and his force of US peacekeepers in Kosovo. It turns out they're actively helping Hasani's drug ring, and personally hand him Scott, Stonebridge and several European Union envoys who had escaped Hasani's custody]].

** The photo of pre-dishonorable discharge Scott in Grant's Trojan Horse file shows him wearing British desert camo with sewn-on rank devices on the collar lapels and a black beret with no flash. Since the photo was taken in 2003, he should be wearing either Woodland [=BDUs=] or 3-Color [=DCUs=]. His beret should have a Special Operations Forces flash and his collar devices should be pins, not patches.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: US Army personnel in episodes 7 and 8 wear something that's definitely ''not'' [=ACUs=], and wear the wrong US flag patch on their sleeves[[note]] The blue field is always supposed to go to the wearer's front, therefore a patch with the blue field on the left side should be worn on the ''left'' sleeve. Since Army regs require the flag on the right sleeve, it should be a patch with the blue field on the right[[/note]].
** An MP would not be sent to conduct an undercover operation. That would fall under Army CID (Criminal Investigation Division). [=MPs=] guard base gates, corral drunk/unruly soldiers, and secure prisoners and [=POWs=]. CID investigates criminal activity.

The first series, '''''Chris Ryan's Strike Back''''', (which later aired on Cinemax under the subtitle '''''Origins''''' in late 2013), aired as a six-part miniseries on the UK's Sky Network in 2010. It's loosely based on the Chris Ryan novel and follows John Porter (Creator/RichardArmitage), a disgraced former-SAS soldier, who is drafted into service by former comrade Hugh Collinson (Creator/AndrewLincoln), the head of Section 20. Initially recruited to rescue a hostage from terrorists in Iraq and later going on missions in Zimbabwe and Afghanistan, Porter soon learns there's a conspiracy of silence behind the failed mission that led to his dishonourable discharge.

True to the trope, Scott tries to convince her to reform and stop Connelly's assistance of Latif.

* ChivalrousPervert: Scott might be an unrepentant TheCasanova but he never mistreats a woman and will not have sex with a female hostage he rescued because that would be taking advantage of her vulnerable emotional state.
