OK but really basic.
10 May 2015 | by carbuffSee all my reviews

Good Nova program, but for my tastes, light on technical details.

I already have a good knowledge of these vehicles and I wanted more details and comparisons of the ones in current or near future use. For instance, the highly-capable Global Hawk was only a bit player in this production.

On the other hand, the three other people I watched this program who had very little existing knowledge on this subject matter found it interesting, if a little slow.

So, a very good basic introduction with some stuff that will interest those who are more knowledgeable, but only solid and not one of their strongest programs
