* InternetBackdraft: Unfortunately the shift from Strangereal to the real world with ''Assault Horizon'' provoked this. Several flavors have cropped up so far:
** [[CulturalCringe Disaffected Americans]] and non-Americans alike frothing at the mouth over ''Assault Horizon's''' announcement trailer, furious that Americans are implied to be the protagonists, especially at the implication that the enemies are Russians (regardless of whether they are [[RenegadeRussian rogues]] [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain or not]]).
** {{Flame War}}s over the announcement trailer depicting an American F-22 shooting down multiple Su-35s (then getting shot down by Akula himself). Much CulturalPosturing and arguing about whether the United States or Russia has the better military followed in the trailer's wake, with inevitable {{Demonization}} [[{{Eagleland}} of Americans]] over TheWarOnTerror mixed in.
** Not to mention the initial reaction to ActionCommands.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Yes, the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTtX6GF6D3I can do an Aileron roll ("barrel roll").]]
** Real-life aircraft have many damage control systems and back-ups allowing damaged aircraft to continue on their mission despite taking direct hits from ground fire. These measures include things like self-sealing fuel tanks, fire suppression systems, back-up hydraulics, the list goes on. And yet people tend to think that aircraft hit by a missile should go down with just one or two hits despite the stories of modern fighters being able to return to base after receiving horrendous damage - famous examples include the A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is designed to survive sustained ground-to-air fire, and the F-15 Eagle, of which one operated by the Israeli Air Force [[https://theaviationist.com/2014/09/15/f-15-lands-with-one-wing/ managed to return to base with only one wing still intact.]]

* ViolationOfCommonSense: In Dubai, it is possible to engage a DFM on an enemy that will lead you through the arch of the ''Atlantis The Palm'' hotel. Guts calls you out on it.

* InterestingSituationDuel: The final level, complete with CrowningMusicOfAwesome, pits you against Markov in [[spoiler: Washington, D.C., with Markov wielding a Trinity Bomb. All SAM sites are down. All other aircraft are doing their best to keep enemy aircraft from attacking ''you''. ItsPersonal, and ItsUpToYou.]]

* [[LethalJokeCharacter Lethal Joke Plane]]: The [=MiG=]-21bis. It's an outdated craft from UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar that lacks radar and is used by the rebels in the game and is also a playable aircraft, but thanks to the CRA mechanics of the game, it is possible to take on modern day advanced stealth fighters like the F-22 or the PAK FA and come out on top. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ5RwcjLAwU This video]] has the player playing on [[HarderThanHard Ace]] in the mission Hurricane and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome beating out Su-33s and the PAK FA in the Fishbed]]. Oh, and it also comes with the SAAM missiles, which while not as powerful as the QAAM, are still an effective missile nonetheless.

* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: Hurricane Alex is reaching the shores of Charleston in the Penultimate mission. Flying through the wind and rain and having to fight against it in a fighter jet isn't unbelievable... but the hurricane is happening on January 18th, 2016. Hurricanes just plain don't happen during the winter seasons in the northern hemisphere.
