Discover the technology that drives military conflicts

On land, at sea, and in the air, the story of modern warfare is the story of weapons races. This series looks at eight of these high-stakes contests. Featuring informative expert commentaries by renowned military analysts, archival footage, and illuminating graphics, it shows how technological advances have transformed warfare in today’s world.

Follow the weapons races as they pass through the two world wars, Korea and Vietnam, the Cold War, and the various conflicts of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf, right up to the 21st century. Trace the stages of each race, from original concept and early breakthroughs to enemy countermeasures and current state of the art. Finally, learn how innovators have pushed the technological limits–of speed, endurance, maneuverability, range, accuracy, and firepower–to produce the killing machines of today.

Since 1990, the British team of Philip Nugus and Jonathan Martin has created popular, critically acclaimed historical documentaries, including Hitler’s Bodyguard and The Century of Warfare.

Take a look at the requirements such as speed, endurance, maneuverability, and fire power that pushed designers to explore the technological limits of the F-22 Raptor.

Take a look at how these monsters were shaped in combat; how the competing requirements of protection, cross-country ability and firepower were refined; and how tactics such as Blitzkrieg were developed to make the Battletank the king of the battlefield.

When strategic bombing was conceived, men began to look at ways of detecting it - or at evading this detection. Take a look at developments in this technology, considering the most extraordinary ways of spotting military and civil machines.

Take an in-depth look at the nuclear weapons race as the Soviet Union used every means possible - particularly espionage to catch up with the United States - and then competed to produce smaller and more deadly bombs.

Examine the elements of range, payload, protection and performance which convinced military theorists that the B-2A Spirit stealth bomber was the ultimate weapon. Find out how their hopes and fears were tested in combat.

This program looks at the men who first conceived the idea of long-range rockets, their successes and failures, and the way in which the nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile became the most powerful weapon ever known to man.

Look at the way in which both the technology and the tactics of submarine warfare were adapted and developed during the Cold War, and how boats like the USS Virginia and the Russian Akula are today’s most powerful and deadly naval units.

The program looks at the evolution of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, and how the aircraft carrier adapted into a floating military base of extraordinary potency.
