Verbatim Box Synopsis
Enemy troops leave senseless destruction and suffering in their wake turning everything into a bloody battlefield.  Thousands of innocent civilians and killed and hundreds of thousands made homeless.
 
A group of undercover soldiers behind the lines are captured trying to infiltrate and sabotage enemy defenses.
 
The American High Command immediately starts operation "Gambit" to storm the enemy occupied zone and repress the aggressors.
 
Thus, eight highly trained human fighting machines are recruited and parachuted behind enemy lines to blow up and destroy their defenses.
