Combat Academy (also known as Combat High) is a 1986 comedy film by the creator of Police Academy, Neal Israel.



Best friends Max Mendelsson (Gordon) and Perry Barnett (Ward) are sent to military school after one prank too many. Max, the real troublemaker and loudmouth ("We're cadets! That's like a step up from musketeers!"), begins plotting ways to get out while Perry realizes that it's time for him to straighten up. Trouble begins when Russian cadets visit the school and begin wargames that the school isn't ready for.
