Iron Thunder is a 1998 American action movie that follows the story of a former Marine, Russel Price, who is hired to steal a top-secret super tank prototype on behalf of a foreign power. The movie is directed by John B. Crye and stars Richard Hatch as Russel Price, Susannah Devereux as Jeanine Markham, and Don Hughes as Colonel Moreland.

The movie takes place in the near future where a new generation of military tanks has been developed, ones with advanced technology that makes them nearly unstoppable on the battlefield. The most advanced of these machines is the titular Iron Thunder, a super-tank that can level buildings with a single shot and possesses armor so thick that it is impervious to all known weapons.

Russell Price is a former Marine who has grown disillusioned with the military life and now runs a small trucking company. However, when he is offered a job to steal the Iron Thunder, he is lured back into his former life of danger and excitement. Alongside his team, which includes Jeanine Markham, a former military intelligence officer, and Colonel Moreland, a retired colonel who is knowledgeable about the Iron Thunder, Russel sets out to steal the tank.

Their mission is a success, and they are able to obtain the Iron Thunder. However, their success is short-lived as they find themselves in a desperate struggle to keep the super-tank out of the hands of various criminal and military organizations, all of whom are eager to obtain the tank's incredible power for their own purposes. Along the way, the team must dodge and evade various obstacles, including a ruthless gang of mercenaries who are hot on their trail.

As Russel and his team race to keep the Iron Thunder out of the wrong hands, they are forced to confront their own inner demons, including Russel's own traumatic experiences as a Marine and Jeanine's struggles with PTSD. Meanwhile, Colonel Moreland serves as a mentor figure to the team, guiding them through the complexities of military strategy and providing them with the knowledge they need to keep the Iron Thunder away from those who seek to use it for evil.

Overall, Iron Thunder is a gripping action movie with a strong cast and an engaging plot. The film is notable for its impressive special effects, which showcase the incredible power and might of the Iron Thunder super-tank. The movie also explores thought-provoking themes around the morality of modern warfare, and the impact that technology and power can have on individuals and society as a whole.
