They filmed this with us starring David Jantzen (The Fugitive) and directed by Jack Webb (Dragnet) Don't tell anyone, but they forgot their missiles. Supposed to have 4 Sparrows on the fuselage stations + 4 Sidewinders on the wings. That bird's flyin nekkid!
Seems to me this was a TV show that had virtually nothing to do with the military, except that DRUG ENFORCEMENT used a couple of Marine vehicles to scare the bad guys. Well, that didnt work, did it?
I wouldnt worry much about the accuracy of the equipment, it was a bogus TV PREMISE.
I'm sure there are many more factual demonstrations of what MARINE AVIATION is capable of.
