Lieutenant Tay is a supporting antagonist in the 1985 film Rambo: First Blood Part II. He is a Vietnamese army lieutenant who is the right-hand man of Captain Vinh, the commander of a POW camp who is in cahoots with Lieutenant Colonel Podovsky. He is a sleazy and vile character who likes to sadistically beat prisoners of war he was in charge of and sleep with prostitutes.

He was portrayed by George Cheung.


It was told that former Green Beret John Rambo was imprisoned in the same POW camp during the Vietnam War, which may imply that Tay had been torturing him before he escaped.

During the events of the film, Tay led many of Podovsky's men to try and kill John Rambo during the latter's attempt to rescue several POWs after being betrayed by Marshall Murdock. Tay and his men later killed Co Bao by shooting her with AK-47s. Rambo killed Tay's men and he ran off like a coward.

Later, Tay returned and confronted Rambo a final time. Rambo was fighting Podovsky's forces with explosive arrows at the time. Tay got a distance away and shot at Rambo with his AK-47 and when that ran out of bullets, he used his Zastava pistol instead, which he also emptied in a futile attempt to kill Rambo. But after Tay missed for the final time with his pistol, Rambo obliterated him with an explosive arrow to the abdomen, blowing him to bloody shreds and killing him, thus avenging Co's death.



  • In novelization of Rambo II, Tay and Rambo are old faces: Tay is one of those who participated in torturing Rambo during Vietnam War.
