Synopsis: The Soviets have developed a revolutionary new jet fighter, called "Firefox". Naturally, the British are worried that the jet will be used as a first-strike weapon, as rumours say that the jet is indetectable on radar. They send ex-Vietnam War pilot Mitchell Gant on a covert mission into the Soviet Union to steal Firefox.

any defensive system we have today.

If the Soviets can mass-produce it... will change

the structure of our world.

We at the S.I.S. have been working...

...on the pipeline into Moscow

and on to Bilyarsk for two years.

The mechanics of that phase

are ready to be implemented.

I understand that your Navy's phase of the

operation can be functional within 30 days?

Am I correct on that, admiral?

That is correct, sir.

How do they expect me to fly?

You've seen me.

We're not worried.

We have three months to train you.

It's getting you there, that's the problem.

Oh? Where is it?


You've got to steal it.

Well, I don't choose to mount

an operation this way.

We didn't expect you

to be happy with it, general.

We're aware of his health record.

But his mother is Russian,

he's spoken the language since childhood...

...and is exactly the same size

as Colonel Voskov...

...who the suit and cockpit are fitted for.

You mean the operation is reduced to

the decision that he fits the pressure suit?

You're asking me

to put our resources on the line...

...for somebody who's never be

on an intelligence mission...

...who's subject to these kind of seizures.

Delayed stress syndrome

is common among our vets.

It manifests itself in civilian life,

not battle conditions.

-This is suicide.

-That's exactly why it'll work.

They'll never expect it. It's too

unthinkable for them to ever defend.

We'll get you on that airplane.

You just have to fly it.

-You guys are amazing, you know?

-We need you, major.

-You're the best we've got.

-You'll find somebody.

There's a lot of guys

who could fly that plane.

You fly it.

Not with your qualifications.

The decision has been made, gentlemen.

I'm afraid we have on other choice.

It's already been set in motion.
