Rambo III[]

After Uri told Rambo about the layout of the Soviet camp, Rambo announced that he wanted to make the escape attempt as soon as possible during a meeting at the Mujhadeen camp in Khost, Afghanistan. This is when Masoud jumped in and said that they would have to wait to rescue Trautman, because they do not have very many soldiers or ammunition and cannot afford a failed mission because the Soviets will attack and kill them, the only hope the Afghan people have. Masoud then tells Rambo about the brutal atrocities that Soviets commit against the Afghan people, like firebombing villages, raping women, and throwing infants and children into fires so they don't have to fight a new generation of Afghans. Rambo understands this because he knows firsthand of Soviet brutality because of his experiences with Podovsky, but he knows that he can't wait to rescue Trautman. As Rambo is attempting to leave and do it himself, Khalid said, this mission is impossible and he will die, but Masoud calls him back and explains that if they go through with it right away, they have to work out a fine plan. While Rambo is playing Sheep Ball, he sees the Soviet gunship helicopters arriving and rushes off to get his AKM assault rifle. When the Soviets attack, he fires the AKM at the soviet helicopters, but to no avail. Khalid survives the Soviet attack on their camp, one of the few who does. It is unknown he participates in the Soviet ambush at the end of the film but in novel verison he did.
