Performers, Cast and Crew:
This action-packed collection from the Military Channel goes deep inside some of the fiercest fighting units in history, including the Navy SEALS, the Green Berets, and the Army Rangers. The pack features special episodes of WEAPONOLOGY and AMERICAN COMMANDOS, each examining the tactics, gear, and training of a specific elite force.
Our toughest, bravest, most driven fighting men. . From the legendary Green Berets to our secret weapon in the war against terrorism, these are the elite squads of our military. Much of what they do has long been shrouded in secrecy, but now here's your chance to get a look at these fascinating soldiers, their cutting-edge weapons and their winning military maneuvers.
AMERICAN COMMANDOS: In a North Carolina swamp, 1,000 young men endure rigorous training, each hoping to be one of the few who will make it as elite Army Green Berets. The Nicholas Rowe Special Forces Camp draws from the best of the best.
AMERICAN COMMANDOS: NIGHT RIDERS: Fly and fight with the helicopter pilots of the Air Force's Special Ops team. Their unmarked black choppers have engaged in classified missions from the tragic Desert One mission and the Persian Gulf War to covert actions in Cuba, Korea and Bosnia.
AMERICAN COMMANDOS: AIRBORNE: Travel to the Army's paratrooper factory at Fort Benning and to Fort Polk for the largest laser tag exercise in the country. Programs like these help to build the crack 101st Airborne Division, one of the toughest units of skydiving soldiers on the planet.
WEAPONOLOGY: NAVY SEALS: We look at the US Navy SEALs' development from search-and-destroy missions in the jungles of Vietnam to hunting the Taliban in the highlands of Afghanistan. These elite squads prove how they can handle any mission in the military playbook.
WEAPONOLOGY: RANGERS: Forged in the fire of every major conflict from the beaches of D-Day to the streets of Baghdad, the Rangers are the elite assault and ambush team of the US Army. Since the 17th century, the Rangers have been known as the masters of military armaments.
WEAPONOLOGY: GREEN BERETS: Green Berets are shadow warriors, lords of unconventional warfare. Their mission is to train and raise armies behind enemy lines using multiple weapons systems, ranging from bolt-action rifles to the latest air strike laser technology.
TASK FORCE DEVIL: NEW WAR ON TERROR: We can't tell you their names or reveal their faces, but we can show you what they do: US Special Forces under cover and in action in Afghanistan, hunting down Taliban warlords, uncovering vast caches of weapons and unleashing a fury of firepower.
