Supposedly, it's the restored mix from the 90s. It also has the correct line at Do Lung Bridge (also heard on the Italian UHD but missing on pretty much every other one).

To be perfectly honest, I've never been able to detect much difference between the "original" 5.1 and the later 5.1. There's maybe slightly better fidelity on the later one, though even that may be down to differences in compression/encoding (or the fact that the "original" we have now was a careful recombination of the stems, rather than the actual original printmaster)

Apocalypse Now always had a pretty killer soundtrack, and the later remixes were more about refining and fine-tuning than anything super-revisionist.
