At the start of the 21st century, the battlefield is dominated by hi-tech weaponry. 'Smart' munitions and Stealth aircraft have taken warfare to new heights of lethal sophistication. The weapons in use today, however, still have their roots in the 20th century which saw unprecedented change in the technology of warfare. Battle Stations is the exciting and dramatic story of those key weapons of war - their development, battlefield deployment and the way in which they changed warfare forever. It's also the story of the men who flew the planes, crewed the tanks, sailed the ships and fought their way to victory. Packed with truly exceptional archive combat film - much of it in colour - Battle Stations also features exclusive interviews with designers, military experts and combat veterans. Using dramatic reconstructions, CGI, archive and witness testimonies, each programme tells the story of a different machine; from the historical context leading to its inception, to its origins on the drawing board and early designs through to its merits on the battlefield and eventual predecessors.
