In [[1957]] a soldier operated under the alias of "Kohler" and served under Colonels [[Irina Spalko]] and [[Antonin Dovchenko]]. Kohler sat with other members of [[Soviet Special Forces]] including [[Marelli]] in a cargo truck. Their mission was to infiltrate [[Hangar 51]] on American soil, disguised as US soldiers and recover the [[Roswell remains|remains]] of an [[Interdimensional beings|interdimensional traveler]] that had crashed in [[Roswell]] ten years prior. Kohler and his colleagues disapproved of several teenagers driving past with music blaring.

He and his fellow soldiers stood in a circle around the staff car in which [[Indiana Jones]] and [[George McHale|George 'Mac' McHale]] were held. As the two were hauled out, the Soviet soldiers kept their guns on them as Jones put on his [[fedora]]. The group soon entered the hangar, and laughed when Jones asked for their bullets to help in his search for the crate holding the remains. Ater the [[archaeologist]] had explained why to Spalko, Kohler watched in awe as the bullets Jones had taken flew through the air towards the heavily magnetised crate. Kohler and his colleagues looked on in awe as they viewed the contents of the box for the first time.

Kohler accompanied his superiors to Hangar 51 in the back of a large cargo truck. On the way to the hangar, Kohler disapproved of several teenagers led by [[Jimmy Keegan]] speeding past in their hot rod.

However, Jones used the distraction to his advantage as he stole [[Franklin]]'s gun, knocked out [[Adams]] and threatened Spalko. The Soviets gave in when Spalko was threatened, but all immediately pointed their guns at Jones again when Mac betrayed him. Jones dropped his gun, which fired when it hit the ground, hitting one of the soldiers in the foot causing him to fire wildly. As Jones attempted to escape, Kohler and the others pursued, guns at the ready, but to no avail. Kohler was among the soldiers who were sent flying backwards when Jones drove a jeep through several boxes. Spalko then ordered him and the others to block the exits, which he ran off to do.

Their prisoners, [[Indiana Jones]] and [[George McHale|George "Mac" McHale]], were released under Dovchenko's orders, and were surrounded by the Soviets as Jones retrieved his [[fedora]]. After Jones was coerced into finding the crate holding the Roswell crash victim, he led the group into the hangar, where they awaited further instructions from their captive.

However, the [[archaeologist]] was able to convince Dovchenko to give him several bullets which he used to locate the highly magnetized crate in which the Roswell remains were kept.<ref name="KotCS"/>
   
Kohler was later among those under Dovchenko who recaptured Indiana Jones, along with [[Mutt Williams]], in [[Nazca]], [[Peru]]. They took them to their camp near [[Akator]] in [[Brazil]]. Kohler and his colleagues were drunk as they watched [[Harold Oxley]], another captive, dancing around the campfire, and laughed and cheered for him. They booed as [[Roosevelt]] and Marelli took Oxley away to Spalko. Kohler watched with his fellow soldiers as Indy and Spalko worked together to uncover the location of the [[Temple of Akator]] to return the [[Crystal Skull of Akator|Crystal Skull]]. When Mutt knocked over the table they were working on, the captives escaped, but were soon apprehended near a [[Quicksand|Dry sandpit]].

Kohler was sitting in a jeep with four of his colleagues as the Soviet convoy travelled to Akator. During [[The Jungle Chase|the jungle chase]], Kohler manned a machine gun, which he fired at Indy, but missed every shot he fired. Indy jumped onto the jeep, knocking one of Kohler's fellow soldiers off of the vehicle. Kohler and his remaining comrades were knocked out, and fell from the car when it went over a tree stump, but, unlike two fellow soldiers, Kohler managed to grab onto the jeep, and was dragged along with it. He was nearly shot by Spalko as she fired a machine gun at Indy and his companions, but Kohler managed to climb atop the jeep, grab the Crystal Skull and throw it to Spalko, before Mac – feigning allegiance to Jones once again – knocked him off the jeep. He was left behind in Brazil.

Disguised as American serviceman "Kohler", a Russian soldier served under Colonel Antonin Dovchenko and Colonel Doctor Irina Spalko, helping them to infiltrate Hangar 51 in Nevada in 1957.

Biography Edit

In 1957, disguised with his comrades as US military soldiers, "Kohler" aided Colonel Antonin Dovchenko and Colonel Doctor Irina Spalko in infiltrating Hangar 51 in Nevada, USA as part of a covert Soviet invasion of America to acquire the Roswell remains.

Kohler accompanied his superiors to Hangar 51 in the back of a large cargo truck. On the way to the hangar, Kohler disapproved of several teenagers led by Jimmy Keegan speeding past in their hot rod. Once they arrived at Hangar 51, Sergeant Wycroft and his MPs approached them, informing them that the base they were entering was closed due to weapons testing. Kohler remained inside his truck as several other soldiers executed the guards, and then they were led into the hangar itself.[1]

Their prisoners, Indiana Jones and George "Mac" McHale, were released under Dovchenko's orders, and were surrounded by the Soviets as Jones retrieved his fedora. After Jones was coerced into finding the crate holding the Roswell crash victim, he led the group into the hangar, where they awaited further instructions from their captive. When Jones asked Colonel Dovchenko for bullets, the Colonel translated this to his subordinates and they all laughed at Indy. However, the archaeologist was able to convince Dovchenko to give him several bullets which he used to locate the highly magnetized crate in which the Roswell remains were kept.[1]

The Soviets looked on in awe as Spalko opened the crate, showing them all the corpse of a deceased being from another world. However, Jones used the distraction of the inhuman body to disable the Soviet guarding him and steal a machine gun from both the latter and Franklin for himself and Mac. The two threatened Spalko, but after Mac revealed his loyalty was to the Russians, Indy realized he was outnumbered. Dovchenko ordered him to drop his gun, but when Jones did the machine gun fired and the bullet hit a Soviet in the foot, allowing the archaeologist time to climb a wall of crates and make his escape, despite the efforts of several soldiers to kill him.[1]

RocketLaunch

Mac barely escaped the blaze that consumed the Soviets.

A chase ensued, and after causing a large car crash Jones ended up being kicked by Dovchenko into an underground testing site. During the two's brawl, a prototype rocket sled was activated and began to slowly turn on. Just as Kohler and four other Soviets arrived to back up their Colonel, a flame came flying from the back of the rocket sled, incinerating all five soldiers.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit

Kohler was played by an uncredited performer in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. While it can't made out in the film itself without the Blu-ray edition, Kohler's name tag and the man who played him can prominently be seen standing next to director Steven Spielberg on the DVD's special features.[2]

In the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull comic book adaptation, Kohler and his comrades are not killed by the rocket sled as the pursuing Soviet soldiers are not depicted as being present during the sled's departure.
