Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.
Harrison Ford's line, "Yeah... very short", may be a reference to Short Round from 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' (1984).
Lucky ring on!

Barney's plane is Russian AN-26 which is a turboprop, but the sound it makes is of piston aircraft. Also, AN-26 can not fly from New Orleans, LA to Bucharest, Romania without refueling.
The end credits feature a montage of scenes from the film with the crew credits printed on dog tags, except for the main cast credits, showing their portraits along with pictures of the weapon of choice.
At a press conference, Sylvester Stallone claimed that 80 frames (just over three seconds) were cut to secure a PG-13 rating in the USA. This footage, along with some strong language and other non-contentious material, was restored for the unrated Blu-ray version, which runs for around 5 minutes longer. The majority of the reinstated material concerned violence, and amounted to much more than the 80 frames initially referenced by Stallone.
