Episode Summary

First Strike
General Warhawk has sent his men to take over the small country of Tierra Libre. Kat is already there in disguise and stops the men temporarily. Colonel Trautman finds Rambo and sends him on a mission to save Tierra Libre. Rambo commissions the help of his friend Turbo who joins him on the mission. Warhawk's men have taken over the bridge leading into the country. Rambo uses his bow and arrow to climb on the bridge and set a bomb causing the bridge to explode minutes later. However, after the explosion Rambo is caught by Havok and taken prisoner. They hang Rambo from a tree but he is able to escape and runs into the jungle. Rambo uses the jungle brush to his advantage and hides in wait until he's able to jump out and grab the unsuspecting enemies. Several of his methods are taken straight from the second movie such as where Rambo covers himself in mud to blend in with a wall of dirt. Warhawk brings in several tanks to fire explosives into the forest where Rambo is hiding. Unbeknownst to Warhawk, Rambo jumps on the back of one of the tanks and rides back to their headquarters where he steals a motorcycle and uses it to jump across the river in a spectacular stunt-master fashion. By the time Rambo reports back to Colonel Trautman, Warhawk has already started repairing the bridge and is quickly bringing his troops across the river into Tierra Libra once again. This time Rambo meets them head on and destroys nearly all of their tanks. At one point Rambo is nearly run over but manages to avoid getting squashed and instead jumps on top of the tank. Rambo gets the driver to surrender and Rambo takes control of the tank and uses it to blow up the bridge one last time, effectively shutting out General Warhawk and saving the country of Tierra Libre.moreless
