The Definitive TV Series of Modern High-Tech Weaponry.
This DVD presents the second two dramatic, fast-moving episodes that depict the development of ground forces, from past failures and successes, to the state-of-art equipment and forces at the heart of today's mechanized battlefield.
Episode 3: WINGED CAVALRY
Cavalry has been the mobile shock force of all successful armies since antiquity. The horseback cavalry has faded away, replaced with shock forces of modern technology: armored cavalry, attack helicopters, and the airborne assault forces. Examine high-speed armored cavalry vehicles, from South Africa's remarkable Rooikat, to Canada's widely used LAV. Trace the evolution of the airborne forces, such as the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division, and take a seat in one of the most lethal weapons on the modern battlefield, the attack helicopter, including the American Apache and South African Rooivalk.
Episode 4: DUEL IN THE DESERT
With the Cold War over, Middle Eastern nations can now forego political alliances when pursuing military technologies, and may buy whatever weaponry is affordable. As domestic needs for military hardware shrink, industrial countries now have a new market to pursue. Take an insightful and informative look at the new weapons systems that compete for Middle Eastern currencies. Witness the powerful arsenals of weaponry offered for sale by countries of the former Soviet Union, France, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the U.S. Experience first-hand, the explosive power delivered by the world's most fearsome armored vehicles, such as the powerful T-90 main battle tank, air defense systems such as the 2S6 Tunguska and the Ka-50 Black Shark attack helicopter.
