Jake and Cole are being punished going into North Vietnam, just before the beginning of Operation Linebacker II. However, the Navy had already been bombing and mining targets in North Vietnam during Operation Linebacker, which started in May of 1972, and continued up through the time period depicted in the film. In reality, by this point, the characters in the movie would have been bombing real, high value North Vietnamese targets for several months, thus negating any frustration over the lack of a worthy mission.
