12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
Many of the US Army Special Forces soldiers seen in the film are seen wearing black fleece jackets. In the book "Horse Soldiers" (renamed "12 Strong" upon the film's release) by Doug Stanton, upon which the film was based, the black fleece jackets were, for some reason, a very popular item amongst the Special Forces personnel as they prepared to go to Afghanistan, so much so that when their original sources ran out of stock, the Special Forces men promptly bought them direct from the manufacturer, North Face.
Captain Mitch Nelson:
Eddy ya OK? Eddy?
Since the BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launcher is a long range weapon, there is no point waiting for its reload time to attack the weapon. At close range, operators can be taken out any time.
In the closing credits, a photograph of the real team is shown.
