Air Warriors (Series 6)
6 x 60'
The new season of this enduringly popular series takes to the air with six aeroplanes that have changed the face of military flying forever. When the Soviet-built MiG-15 first screamed over the battlegrounds of the Korean War, America was horrified at what it could do. Nimble, jet-powered, and capable of diving at supersonic speed, it outperforms any machine in the sky. Meanwhile, the F-22 Raptor, through a combination of delays, cost-overruns and a changing combat landscape, never really took off, either literally or metaphorically. And the Dassault Rafale is an aircraft capable of performing both air-to-air and air-to-ground strikes as well as interceptions simultaneously. With 14 hardpoints suitable for carrying nine tons of weaponry and ordnance such as a 30mm cannon, and laser-guided bombs, this aircraft certainly packs a punch.
