Defending the Skies - Russian version (English subtitles)
As the ancients said, “If you want peace, prepare for war.” Today, stability in the world is maintained by a network of nuclear weapons and powerful missile defence systems. In Russia, early warning of an attack is given by radar. Russia’s missile defence system is an effective, fine-tuned cluster of space and computer technologies ready to be deployed on land, at sea, underwater and in near space. Every link in the defence system’s chain is covered in this “special report”, from the detection of enemy missiles to their ultimate destruction. This series delivers an insight on the high-pressure atmosphere at one of the newest radar stations and at an anti-aircraft defence unit outside of Moscow, making for a thrilling and unique viewer experience!
