Factual error: At one point in the movie the sun is behind the helicopter and we can see that the places for the missiles are empty. However, he's shooting right after that.
Rambo, living the peaceful life, is asked to do a mission with his boss and last friend Samuel Trautman. He refuses. On the mission, Trautman is taken as a POW. Now it's up to Rambo to save his last friend.
Zaysen: Are you insane? One man against trained commandos... Who do you think this man is? God?
Colonel Trautman: No. God would have mercy. He won't.
Trivia: Peshwar, Pakistan, actually was the site of many refugee camps and Afghan rebel support, and American intelligence operated out of nearby Islamabad, and the muhajadeen operated principally in the supposed "50 miles over the border." Especially considering the movie was filmed in Israel, the geographical shots are also pretty accurate, with only one problem: when Rambo says "across the valley is the border," across a plain with mountains in the distance, they are supposed to be escaping into Pakistan. There is only one spot where they could be, and it's right in the middle of the Khyber Pass, inaccessible to Russian tanks and armoured vehicles. The Russians would be riding on donkeys, not tanks. The only such place near the Afghan border that such a battle could take place would have Rambo and Trautman escaping into Iran.
