The AH-64 Apache helicopter does not have a machine gun mounted on its "cheeks" The 30mm chain gun that it carries is located under the cockpit, on the chin of the helicopter. Also, the muzzle flash from the guns mounted on the side would interfere with the pilot and the gunner's night vision.
Various effects that appeared as green film scratches (but were not, in fact, scratches) showed up periodically over the credits.
