[edit] Information

1. The Race for the Jet Fighter
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.

2. The Race for the Battle Tank
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.

3. The Race for Radar and Stealth
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.

4. The Race For the Nuclear Bomb
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.

5. The Race for the Strategic Bomber
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.

6. The Race for the Ballistic Missile
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.

7. The Race for the Nuclear Submarine
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.

8. The Race for the Aircraft Carrier
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.
