The Strike Force Boxset features all 5 DVDs in the series.

STRIKE FORCE: BUCCANEER

In the Gulf War, the Buccaneer proved that it could play a significant offensive role both as a target marker for Tornados and as a bomber in its own right. This was no surprise to the Royal Navy and the RAF who considered that the Buccaneer had been one of the world’s best low-level strike aircraft of the last 30 years. Includes rare archive footage and exclusive interviews with the people who designed and flew the plane, giving a personal insight into the innovations, testing and service life of this magnificent aircraft.

DVD extra: Development of steam catapults featuring early deck trials of various aircraft including the NA39 Buccaneer prototype.

STRIKE FORCE HARRIER: THE VERTICAL REALITY

Salute the achievements of the Harrier, in peace and war, over land and sea, through test and research, taking this unique British aircraft design towards the 21st Century. This fast-paced, action-packed DVD features original and dramatic footage along with exclusive videotape taken of No1 (Fighter) Squadron’s spectacular mass display of Harriers at Fairford’s International Air Tattoo and so much more.

DVD extra: Actor and aviation enthusiast, David Jason, arrives at RIAT in a two-seater Harrier, meets Test Pilot Bill Bedford and the Harrier squadron performs a simulated bombing raid.

STRIKE FORCE: MiG-29

Arguably the most advanced strike aircraft in the world today, the MiG 29’s maneuverability and stability at high angles of attack makes it a formidable weapon. Developed in the sinister days of the cold war, the concept behind the MiG was to design an aircraft specifically for both offensive and defensive roles. This DVD tells the story of the MiG’s evolution, from initial brief through design, development, testing, flight trials and deployment. Includes superb archive footage, original interviews with designers and pilots, plus an exclusive interview with the man responsible for testing the plane to its limits - Leonid Lobos.

DVD extra: Features Mig-29 air displays from the Hungarian, Polish and Ukrainian Air Forces.

STRIKE FORCE: THE STORY OF SUKHOI

The Sukhoi story tells the complete history of one of the world’s most famous designers and manufacturers of strike aircraft. With vintage footage that has never been seen in the West, the programme examines closely the development and capabilities of the later Sukhoi aircraft including the SU-24 Fencer, the SU25 Frogfoot and the Su-27 Flanker. The DVD concludes with an extraordinary aerial ballet performed by two SU-27’s filmed by a third plane. The Cobra’s turns and twists make this one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring film sequences ever seen.

DVD extras: SU-37 from the Russian Air Defence Force demonstrates the Super Cobra plus the Ukrainian Air Force demonstrates the SU-27.
