The M-61A1 cannon does not require a radar lock to shoot at a target, and is not affected by any operating mode of the radar. The radar could be turned off, and the cannon would still operate normally. In reality, no weapon that the F-16s carried in the film required a radar lock to operate. The AIM-9 Sidewinder air to air missile tracks via the target's IR signature, not a radar lock.
The credits are yellow over a blue background, as opposed to the normal white over a black background.
