The History Channel’s cutting-edge ‘DOGFIGHTS’ series to wow Thai viewers

Entertainment Press Releases Thursday January 24, 2008 04:56

There are moments in war when issues are decided, when wits, technology, skill, and luck come together, when heroes are made and lives are lost. The use of the latest 3-D computer animation allows for the ultimate inside-the-cockpit experience for the most intense air battles ever waged, from Word War II to Korea to Vietnam, in the new series DOGFIGHTS, which will premiere with the ‘Death of the Japanese Navy’ on The History Channel® (TrueVisions A23 or D44) on Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 9:00 p.m.

Produced by Digital Ranch, DOGFIGHTS features pilots and planes from memorable air battles of the past. With raw historical footage, detailed anecdotes by war heroes themselves and stunning animated re-creation of the battles, DOGFIGHTS brings these battles to life and puts the viewer in the heat of the action alongside those who actually fought them.

‘Death of the Japanese Navy’ showcases one of the most thrilling, lopsided naval battles in history. The mighty Japanese fleet led by the Yamato, the biggest battleship in the world takes on the Taffy 3, a small US task unit of tin can destroyers and baby flat-tops, ships too weak to fight and too slow to run. Watch this lopsided naval fight for survival, with the lives of thousands of US soldiers in the balance.
