    I think the shields are wrong for the period. Am I missing anything else?

    Trajan's column clearly illustrates that the only heavy lift helicopter used in the Dacian War was the CH-53 Sea Stallion. The helicopter pictured here is the CH-47 Chinook which this reenactment group obviously used in error due to poor research.

    The ancient Romans were very progressively equipped ...

    Those machines were driven by slaves with hand cranks (gladiators for the flying machines)!

    Here you can see the original of such a drive - for a long time wrongly classified as a "grain mill"...:
