Did you read the Wiki? It's pretty similar and I remember those scenes in that movie as well. I just did a IMDB check on Dalton's career and it
doesn't show any movie he played as a protagonist in the Soviet-Afghan war.
Maybe Dolph Lundgren?
I actually did watch The Beast last year in my effort to find this mystery movie.
The movie I'm looking for probably takes place in the first Chechen war. I remember the protagonist is some kind of spy and is working with the
antagonist, who is the spetsnaz commander, and then the protagonist ends up working with the rebels or something because he ends up with the love
interest blonde chick.
I actually thought that it was a Bond film when I saw it, but imagine a 90s Bond film without cheesy humour and an overall darker feel to it. I say
Chechnya because it was a semi-arid region with grassy plateaus (especially in the scene with the helicopter), like the Caucasus.
I also did look at Dalton's film list to no avail. It was probably an European-made movie, maybe a different actor that looks like Dalton. I'm
pretty sure I watched it on CBC North (Canadian channel) that used to show foreign/independent films every night.
Btw, I was not a fan of The Beast. Though I found it ironic how Hollywood depicted the freedom fighting villagers of Afghanistan back in 1988 lol
