some of those shows sounds like old school History Channel. I remember watching weapons of war, military blunders, masters of war and century of warfare.

I could always sit down and watch them. I guess I need to cough up the cash for a better cable package.

Charge 7
 
 
Nope, Doody, it ain't old school History Channel. Much more in depth on facts and figures, more interviews with the people who are there etc. Kind of a cross between The History Channel and Frontline I guess.

Blues Angels are now gone, so new banners have been added..

It also looks like they've updated their site a bit, and added some more pictures and videos there.
(I can recommend the "Strategies & Tactics Video" and "Personal Stories Video" sections, some impressive footage there..)

Tonights Show:


Battlefield Diaries: Battle of Al Khafji
Quote:
On January 29, 1991, twelve days into the Persian Gulf War, American air power dominated the campaign. Ground forces saw no direct enemy contact. But Saddam Hussein was not about to stay on the defensive. That night, in an effort to draw the American and Coalition forces into an early ground war and bolster the morale of his own troops, Hussein and the Iraqi Military launch a surprise attack by invading the Saudi Arabian city of Al Khafji.

It's Nellis Air Force Base where bombers, fighters and million dollar spy planes cruise the skies in the most realistic of war games known as Red Flag. Red Flag is a realistic combat training exercise involving the air forces of the United States and its allies, and is conducted on the vast bombing and gunnery ranges at Nellis AFB, Nevada......

The campaign will run out March, and then I'll remove/replace the banners, and stop "spamming" my own forum (for now)
