Afghanistan, 1981, and the Soviet Union is locked in a futile and bloody battle with the Mujahedeen guerrillas. Separated from their patrol, the crew of a Russian T-62 tank engages in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the local insurgents led by Taj (Steven Bauer). The tyrannical tank commander Daskal (George Dzundza) wreaks havoc on a peaceful Afghani village, pushing the moral boundaries of the tank driver, Koverchenko, (Jason Patric) to the limits. Sensing mutiny, the psychotic Daskal abandons the disenchanted tanker to die in the desert at the hand of rebels, only to find he's sealed his own fate.
This is my favorite movie ever. Absolutely riveting, you can't look away
Your not a Tanker until you have shot your first Gunnery and watched the Beast.
This is an awesome movie about the survival of a Russian tank crew inside Afghanistan. The inside of the tank scenes are pretty unrealistic but the movie overall is great. If you love movies about tanks, you'll definately love this film.
