Two DDS soldiers sent into Scotland are named "Miller" and "Carpenter". George Miller directed the "Mad Max" trilogy and John Carpenter directed Escape from New York (1981) and Escape from L.A. (1996), all heavily influential to this film.
The APC vehicles were manufactured with real steel plating and armor plated glass windscreens so that actors and stunt people could interact with them authentically. They took four or five weeks to design and ten weeks to build. Two were manufactured, and every piece of them was custom made. There was talk of buying similar vehicles that were being decommissioned, but it turned out to be cheaper to build their own from scratch.
Despite dealing with a "killer virus" that's managed to get an entire country quarantined, the soldiers at the blockade are wearing nothing to protect themselves from infection - just gas masks, which will help against toxic gases but do next to nothing against something as small as a virus - and even have exposed skin, such as their hands and necks. Full biohazard suits might be a bit much to expect but surely the joins in their fatigues should be sealed with tape and all skin would be covered, at least.
