A group of colorful characters are drawn to an ad in a mercenary magazine
that offers a million dollars to anyone who can steal or produce a
Russian Mi-24 "Hind" helicopter gunship...
It's 1984, and the Soviet Union and Cuba have established a presence
in Central America--primarily Nicaragua--and provide supplies to the
communist government there with arms, ammunition, aircraft--and the
dreaded Mi-24 helicopter gunship, NATO code-named "Hind". Little is
known of this beast, so American Mercenary magazine offers a $1 million
reward for anyone who can defect, or steal, and deliver one to a free
world country for examination. Vietnam vet and former Cobra gunship
pilot, now a police helicopter pilot Mark Ryan and his Special Forces
vet buddy Todd Simmons decide to give it a try by infiltrating Nicaragua,
locating a Hind, and stealing it!
