We learn more and more everyday, and this series is proof of that. Did you know that the Mil Mi-24 Hind-D helicopter is 21.5 meters long? Neither did I, but now we both do. We also learn about the British military's SA-80, likely my third favorite assault rifle (after the P90 of Stargate fame and the Steyr Aug of Die Hard fame). Can't say as I've seen an SA-80 in a film though. And we learn more about survival in the wilds. Reminds me of a primitive Les Stroud.
