Revenge of the Fallen is catching more media attention as USA Today posted a second article about the upcoming movie. The article describes the army equipment and cooperation that was needed to make this sequel.

Amid blinding platinum dunes baking in the 105-degree sun, scores of elite servicemen and women cluster in and around real tanks, rocket launchers and personnel carriers as they unleash a machine-gun barrage at an invisible (and entirely fictional) enemy: Transformers.

These troops, many of them recently returned from the actual life-and-death realities of Iraq and Afghanistan, aren't professional actors. But for the moment, they are the stars and this is the climactic battle of next summer's sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

"Plausibility!" Bishop bellows. "It has to be realistic!"
Army Sgt. Matt Hibbert, holding a prop sniper rifle, calls down: "But sir, this is Hollywood! I'm shooting at invisible aliens and firing a gun that never runs out of ammo!"


:APPLAUSE: :grin: :grin: :APPLAUSE:

Interesting to see they gave Epps the promotion and not the whole lot.....

So many people are firing so many guns that civilian crew workers go through between shots, gathering up buckets full of empty brass shell casings. Having so many scattered around clutters later shots, and the workers say they can trade them in as scrap and get enough money for a few cases of beer.
