Hint:

A former US Marine officer had played an important role bringing this movie on screen and this actor had also participated in many well-known war movies although always in supporting roles, often as high-ranking officers.

Maybe this hint was helpful!?

Correct, Mark!

and the German title Airborne - Flügel aus Stahl doesn't really fits with the plot around the AH-64.

The actor which I have mentioned is Dale Dye.

I recognized actor Hans Jörg Felmy, son of Luftwaffe General Hellmuth Felmy.

I think it is a picture from Haie und kleine Fische.

The movie title starts with Nacht and ends I think with Gotenhafen but cannot remember the middle title words

Hi Mark,

the title you are searching for is Nacht fiel über Gotenhafen.

https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nacht_f ... Gotenhafen

But I think that the guy far right on the picture is Hans Jörg Felmy, and he had not participated in Nacht über Gotenhafen - as far as I know.

Russian movie, hmm..? :?

The officer in the background with the typical russian officers headdress, in the foreground russian paratroopers
with the typical blue berets..?

Chechnya / Afghanistan russian war movie, but there were very many russian feature films about all this horror...

A small selection of (russian) movies on this nasty war:

Die neun besten und schlechtesten Filme über den Krieg in Afghanistan https://de.rbth.com/kultur/81585-filme- ... stan-krieg

So far, no idea, sorry... :?


Hans

P.S. My money is on one of these films, but unfortunately I'm not sure...?

Hello Hans,

correct, the movie is about Russian armed forces but it was not produced by a Russian studio.

Maybe the blue berets were intended to be VDV paratroopers but IMHO this would't fit with the movie's setting. In addition I would not expect an AN-26 airplane in this setting.

Maybe this was helpful. If not later on I will present another picture or a written hint.

Thank you for your link about the movies about Russian deployment to AFG. Really interesting!

Best regards
Robert
