Episode 03 - Russian Army in Chechnya

16 Min
After the fall of the soviet union many countries remained in dispute in the early nineties despite eastern Europe‘s independence. In 1994 a bitter conflict broke out between the forces of the Chechen independence movement and the Russian regular army. Despite overwhelming manpower, weaponry and air support, the Russian forces were unable to establish effective permanent control over the mountainous area due to many successful Chechen guerrilla raids. Improvised Explosive Devices were one of the most effective methods employed in these disastrous raids and were the back drop to many Close Quarter Battle scenarios exchanged between the two sides.

Episode 09 - Private Military Contractors

16 Min
The practice of hiring private armies goes back to ancient times, and the mystique associated with the mercenary warrior has been the subject of many historical studies and fictional characterizations. This episode of CQB takes a more contemporary look at a day in the life of a group of civilian contractors, and how their role has evolved on the modern battlefield. Using its “sub-second” analysis techniques and intimate first-person footage, CQB reveals the backgrounds, training and equipment of today’s “soldiers for hire” and how private armies are re-shaping the way conflicts are conducted around the world.
