Ever imagine what it would be like to participate in the most historic air battles of all time? Imagine no more. DOGFIGHTS puts you in the cockpit to re-create famous air-to-air engagements. Computer graphics, animation, firsthand accounts, and archival footage make these thrilling and dangerous dogfights all too real.
One thousand sorties a day! There had never been anything like it, there may never be again. From the first helicopter strike on January 17, 1991, it was a gloves-off, damn-the-torpedoes, all-out rain of hellfire against the Iraqi defenses. Within the maelstrom, individual acts of piloting prowess and bravery stand out, and are celebrated and recreated in this gut-churning episode of DOGFIGHTS.
See how a generational leap in technology and strategy shapes America's first large scale air offensive since the Vietnam War. On the first night of the war an Iraqi Mirage F1 attacks an unarmed EF-111, with deadly &mdash but unexpected &mdash consequences. Watch as F-15C pilots take on a pair of Iraqi MiG-25 interceptors. And fly with Captain Cesar Rodriguez as he takes on MiGs, in a classic Beyond Visual Range engagement that illustrates the awe-striking power of modern weapons technology.
The DOGFIGHTS OF DESERT STORM were a showcase of military might twenty years in the making, and this DVD is a highlight reel of the conflict as seen from the air.
