AIRED:
Longbow/National Technical Systems/WWI Machine Gun/P-51 Mustang/WWII Flight Jacket: #44. Medieval expert Jeffrey Hedgecock shows R. Lee Ermey why the longbow was such a feared weapon and how it helped England become a dominant European power in the Middle Ages, and demonstrates the brigandine variety of archer protection. Then, Lee heads to Arkansas, where National Technical Systems tests weapons and equipment; profiles the WWI Chauchat machine gun, a fabulous French flop; gets an up-close look at a restored P-51 Mustang; and swaggers around in an A-2 flight Jacket, a WWII icon.moreless
