Red Scorpion, 1989
Permalink Closed

A giant Soviet helicopter gunship is used to help burn an African village, and it also fires rockets to destroy the rebels' military camp. The Spetznaz commando hero (Dolph Lundgren) shoots this huge chopper down with a hi-tech machine-gun (more convincing, at least, than the very similar stunt in Rambo 3).

"Red Scorpion also has a fake Hind (a modified Sikorsky S-62/ HH-52A), which I have read is the exact same machine used in Missing In Action III from the year before. In fact, knowing how cheaply some of these movies were made, I would not be surprised if the footage in Red Scorpion was lifted intact from M.I.A. III..." - NATHAN DECKER / IAN VINCENT FRAIN

I'm trying to find this movie but it must be rare, because it doesn't turn up in any video store.
