Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.

(at around 24 mins) Luc and Scott are sent to apprehend Veronica, the problem is that moments before they were sent to get her, they were naked and having their memory clearance injections. By the time they got kitted up to go get her, she would have already left and they'd have no hope of catching her.
The new Region 1 Special Edition DVD features an alternate ending: Andrew Scott guns down Luc Devereaux's mother before their big fight. After Luc wins, he is shotgunned by his father before Dr. Gregor explains that those weren't his real parents. Then, agents with Dr. Gregor gun down Luc until the police, a news crew and a UniSol tech arrive to save his life and arrest the doctor and his men. Finally, there is a voice-over by Veronica with scenes of Luc reuniting with his real parents. In the voice-over, Veronica explains that Luc lived for two months, enjoying his family's company, but refusing any medical treatment until he died of natural causes.
