This movie was made in Czechoslovakia in 1968. The whole crew had to flight from the Eastern Block-troops, which had invaded Czechoslovakia in that 1968. so a lot of the cars were left over there.
The missing scenes were later made in Italy (Castel Gandolfo) and mainly around Hamburg.

during filming,Russian aircraft and helicopters buzzed the scenes of Chaffe tanks and armed actors..using Austrian Army Chaffes and US Ww2 period weapons from a Czech film studio.....photos later appeared in the Russian newspaper Pravda falsley stating the "discovery" of a US arms cache (film props) and accused the US Government of supplying weapons to the Czechs (as the russians were invading parts of the country) in order to fight the Russians...and that the whole movie was a CIA cover and actors dressed as GIs were American spies.
On the 60th day of filming (where Segal and Gazzara lead the attack across the bridge)filming was halted and they had to leave the country. They left in a convoy of 40 vehicles through Prague to the austrian border, dodging Russian tanks.
Filming continued at Hamburg,Germany..and the scene where Robert Vaughn tells the civillians to "cover your ears " is filmed in a replica tunnel on set in Hamburg..it took 10 days to reconstruct part sets to replace the Czech ones....all with minor detail as the original plans were left behind.
The scenes involving the Segal/Gazzara attack across the bridge were filmed on a half replica of the Czech bridge..most of the scenes involving the US attack across the bridge were filmed on a mock up bridge in Hamburg..and if you watch the film...you cannot tell the difference between the Czech bridge and the Hamburg prop one!!!!!!.
Later, under Soviet occupation, permission was granted for a film crew to go back to davle to film long shots of the bridge ..this filming is the shot where the americans are crossing the captured bridge..and where Segal meets Gazarra after thinking him dead....all the Americans in the bridge crossing shot are actually Czech troops,who are being watched off camera by Russian troops...the Russian military command in Prague had to provide Russian troops in order that other Russian troops would not think the US "soldiers" were real...and attack them, so Russian soldiers were provided as "escorts".
In this sequence, the scene where Segal meets Gazarra is actually filmed on the prop bridge in Hamburg..when its put together,with the shots at Davle one cannot tell the difference!.
