Wild Wild West - What's a Tank?
When the bad guy introduces his tank-like vehicle, he does call it a "tank". That's a slipup.
The reason it is now commonly known as a tank is when the British created the tank in the first world war, the project was so Top Secret that the people building the vehicle thought they were building a big water tank to carry water from one place to another. The name has stayed the same since.

This movie was not, in any way, shape, or form based on accurate history. There were no Black Army officers, let alone "top operatives" with direct connections to the President. There were no rocket-powered bicycles, giant mechanical spiders, super electromagnets, fully functioning tanks, etc. The movie is obviously not meant to be historically accurate. As such, I do not believe historical inaccuracies are slip ups.
