- A trademark SHOOTOUT! look at a Marine raid on a jihadist training camp on the Syria-Iraq border.
Take aim from both sides of the fight. SHOOTOUT! examines the personalities, the weapons, the firepower, and the leadership needed to defeat the enemy. With 3D CGI animation sequences and testimony from scholars and experts, the battles come alive as they looked to the soldiers and shooters themselves.
SHOOTOUT! applies its unique analysis to very recent history, deconstructing a battle waged in the summer of 2005. Join a thousand soldiers from the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines on a raid of a jihadist training camp on Iraq’s border with Syria.
The camp is a nerve center supplying expertise and equipment to the al Qaeda terror organization, helping radicals hone their deadly skills – IED-building, hostage-taking, and the like – before joining the insurgency in Baghdad. The camp itself has become a blight to the local people, who are brutalized daily by the violent militants.
When the Marines hit the camp, you see the action as only SHOOTOUT! can show it: enhanced computer renderings and three-dimensional animation, coupled with accounts from soldiers who were there. No other show puts you in the action and clarifies the battle like this hugely popular, unique series.
