Description

August 1990. Iraq invades Kuwait. During the invasion, an intrepid band of Kuwaiti aviators evacuate twenty A-4 Skyhawk attack jets to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis and coalition forces shunt them into a remote airbase in Arabia and ignore them. US Leaders realize that Kuwaitis fighting for their own liberation is important and would be good PR. Veteran Naval Aviator, Commander Robert (Danger Bob, Noz) Noziglia, and a team of technicians are sent to the desert to rebuild the Kuwaiti Air Force, get them flying, and prepare them for and lead them into combat. To succeed, they must overcome challenges and negotiate resistance caused by language, culture, the Saudis, the Coalition Forces, Desert Princes, etc. Their adventures are amazing and unique, and culminate in the Kuwaitis conducting a precision bombing mission against an Iraqi missile site in the middle of a shopping mall in Kuwait City.
