Afghanistan, October 2002: the hills are alive with the sound of heavy metal, courtesy of the US Air Force.
The best intelligence is new intelligence and nothing beats "real-time" intel: eyes-on information delivered at the moment it's needed. And when your ordinance absolutely, positively has to arrive on time and on target, you better have eyes within sight. In other words, someone's gotta go deep behind enemy lines.
This tense episode of HEROES UNDER FIRE follows the hair-raising exploits of three Air Force commandos as they scour the Taliban-controlled foothills of Afghanistan. Their mission is to scout potential Taliban targets on foot or by horse, provide F-16s with real-time intelligence, paint each target with a laser pointer, and watch as precision bombs obliterate Taliban strongholds.
