This takes me back, I remember when these were released and I bought the first issue mainly for the cool cover.

Unisol movie trivia.

Apparently stated by JC in an interview, sounds funy, might be true.

Van Damme was on an interview back when this movie was released. According to him during an opening sequence when Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren's characters are repelling face forward down this dam, the stunt men were literally connected to ropes and running horizontally down the walls of the dam. Lundgren volunteered to do the last part of this stunt personally and slipped, falling face first into the concrete floor of the dam. (Source: Interview) - The Equalizer

I can add a few other titbits of Unisol information that I found on the R2 DVD commentary. Devlin and Emmerich reveal plenty of facts throughout the track, such as the fact that the opening scene, set in Vietnam, was actually filmed on a golf course (!) in Arizona. The waitress in the roadside diner, Brenda, was actually Dolph's acting coach on the set. And Ralph Moeller tried to convince Emmerich to give his character more lines, but Emmerich felt he had such a thick German accent that audiences wouldn't buy his being an American soldier, as the Unisols are supposed to be.
Maybe it's just me, but I think that's a bit of a strange comment to make about a film whose two main stars, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, are Belgian and Swedish respectively.....

Yeah, but I couldn't hear Dolph's accent at all and they did explain that Damme from a French family from Orleans (just like in Hard Target)

It's not from the Kinowelt one (which is a good edition as well), it's indeed on the US and French editions you pointed out...
