Transformers RotF and the Armed Forces

Postby Raymond T. » Sun Dec 28, 2008 9:30 pm

USA Today has a featured article up on their site about the upcoming Michael Bay movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. And the use of the US Military Forces for the movie.

"The U.S. Department of Defense gave its official stamp of approval to the Michael Bay-directed film, not only allowing production amid the pristine dunes of the Army's New Mexico missile range, but also letting filmmakers follow jets and fighter planes through the sky from nearby Holloman Air Force Base. More scenes were shot on the Navy's aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, and Marines fill the ranks of the strike team battling the invading Transformers".

"Among the equipment the movie is using in this desert sequence alone: two A-10 Thunderbolt II "Warthog" tank-killing jets; six F-16 Fighting Falcons; 10 armored Humvees; the Army's Golden Knights parachute team; two Abrams tanks; two Bradley tanks; two missile-launcher vehicles; two armored personnel carriers; and a quarter-mile of the missile testing range, cleared of unexploded ordnance and built into an Egyptian town and temple. (Signs warn not to cross a perimeter just over the gypsum dunes, because live bombs could be hidden in the sand)".

Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
Gotta admire the military: when they support something, they commit nothing but the best to it.

well, hopefully we'll get the warthog tank killers as an autobot or decepticon in a later movie.
