  • Military equipment, from war hammers to nuclear missiles, is explained in a unique way. The host, R. Lee Ermey, brings his 'Full Metal Jacket' persona to the small screen.

    Not the most in-depth explanations of military subjects but definitely the most unique. Host R. Lee Ermey is much different from the historians that star in many of the History Channel's other military programs. A Viet Nam veteran and former DI, Ermey adds a first hand look to many episodes. Although Ermey is a former Marine, he doesn't short change the Army, Air Force, Navy, or even the Coast Guard. The Series covers a wide range military weapons, from a Roman Ballista to a nuclear missile silo. Topics also include military customs, training, and 'fabulous flops.' Ermey's delivery is often loud and in-your-face, which is part of the show's uniqueness.
