The People's Republic of China has launched a terrifying attaack against Taiwan. Cold--swift--deadly. The US isn't willing to stand by and watch, but when they come to Taiwan's aid, they're dealt an unexpected blow from Chinese forces. It looks like the US is going down . . . Until aerial strike warfare expert Patric McLanahan and genius Jon Masters come into the picture. Together they have created a monster--the EB-52 Megafortress. A high-tech display of weaponry fully equipped with stealth cruise missiles. The most sophisticated bomber the world has ever seen. The unsinkable 'flying battleship.' Now China is on the way to a nuclear high noon. And the Doomsday clock is ticking . . .
In this audio, the US is about to retire the B52 and other Heavy Bombers from service as many have determined that they are no longer needed as nuclear deterrents. At the same time, China has decided that it finally wants Taiwan back! China develops a plan whereby the US is seen as helping Taiwan and sabotaging various Chinese efforts at reclaiming the island nation. As in past (and probably future) Brown books, you find McClannahan as well as General Brad Elliot along with their new "toys" from Skymasters Inc. attempting to turn the tide of the onslought. One surprising aspect of this hypothetical scenario is that China actually deploys and uses nukes to further their cause.
This is a fast paced audio with a lot of information coming at you.
One minor annoying feature, the narrator uses the same voice for different characters, thereby making it a little difficult to determine who is talking. No Biggy!
