Synopsis by Alice Day
As weapons of war become more advanced, the goal to control more battle situations from a distance is being realized. Experts from the U.S. and England give details of some of the missile systems and laser-guided bombs that can inflict damage on the enemy without endangering pilots and soldiers who operate the controls. Examples from the Gulf War are provided, as plans to control the air were carried out in Iraq, and tank-destroying helicopters such as the Apache were deployed. Sophisticated means of data exchange between aircraft is also explained.
