Typical case of sequel-itis: even less coherent than the first one.

Sergente Francesco Garibaldi Rompiglioni is now posted at the Nato headquarters in Napoli and has his eye set on a big promotion, meaning not one rule-bending soldier-boy is safe, especially concerning visiting females within the boundaries of the compound. His commanding officer, Colonelo La Torre (Mario Colli) is unhappy about his son (also an officer) dating the cooks daughter, and sees Rompiglioni as the means to end this relationship. Naturaly, both men are in for some surprised before the film is through. Accompanied by two MP's, Il Sergente does his best to keep all of his subordinates away from girls, but mainly gets himself in trouble. When he shows some interest in African American Julie Brown, Rompiglioni is thwarted in turn by Captain Calaghan (definately not the one from Police Academy), who can only be called a woman in the broadest sense of the word.

Meanwhile, the Chief of the CIA, who is constantly being shot at in the privacy of his own office (which is actually quite amusing, in a Saturday morning cartoon kind of way) orders Rompiglioni to find a leak in the organization concerning some top secret weapons. During the investigation he encounters an aging Adolph Hitler (also played by Franco Franchi) and is startled by an unexpected radio broadcast by 'the famous Franco Franchi' (how very self indulgent). He also takes Karate lessons from Chinese pizzeria owner Chang (George Wang), who asks no money in return, just a tour to the camp testing ground, while carrying a camera... It turns out the secret weapon is some sort of sound wave-gun that effects a person's bowels when hit. So during the finale the entire cast literally goes down the toilet.
