    M60D heavy machine gun (mocked-up to look like DShK)
  • GE M134 Minigun (mocked-up to resemble YakB 12.7mm Gatling miniguns)
  • FN MAG light machine gun (likely standing in for the PKM)
  • Missiles ?



  • An interesting fact is that the helicopters seen in both films aren't even actual Hinds at all. They are really Aérospatiale Pumas mocked-up to look like the real Soviet gunships. This was a common trick in the 1980s, as when shooting for Rambo III was moved to America, the authentic Soviet weaponry was replaced by mocked-up or fake props.
  • In the film this helicopter is piloted by only one person whereas the real Mil Mi-24 Hind have a tandem two-seater cockpit (front shooter and rear pilot).
