The most concentrated air assault of the Vietnam War started with a bang! When it launched Operation Linebacker on May 10, 1972, the U.S. threw out its old playbook and introduced radical tactics and technology meant to bring the war to a decisive end. Primarily targeting North Vietnamese roads, rails and air defenses, Linebacker required U.S. pilots to hit with precision deep in enemy territory. The resistance they met was awesome and lead to the some of the most intense air-to-air combat in aviation history.
This riveting episode of DOGFIGHTS captures the highlights of this hallmark moment in air combat. From gutsy "turn-and-burn" battles to the first widespread application of precision-guided munitions, THE BLOODIEST DAY puts you in the cockpit to witness a day of combat like no other. You will fly F4 Phantoms, F-105s and others deep into North Vietnam; lock onto and evade MiG-21s and MiG-17s; and employ high-tech gear including advanced radar jamming equipment and smart bombs.
Gear heads and adrenaline junkies will be equally thrilled by THE BLOODIEST DAY!
