London – A+E Networks UK has commissioned Woodcut Media to produce new factual series Combat Machines for HISTORY in the UK. Combat Machines marks the third series in the ‘Combat’ franchise, following the success of Combat Ships and Combat Trains, which both previously premiered on HISTORY.

Showcasing inventions such as Hiram Maxim’s machine gun, through to current armoured vehicles including the Cougar and Marauder, the series focuses on the definitive machines and weapons of both World Wars, as well as the Cold War. Themes covered in the series include: The Desert Rats; Machines of WW1; Vehicles of WW2; Electronic Warfare; Battlefield Engineering; Vietnam War; Mechanised Infantry; and The Arms Race.
Woodcut Media’s Executive Producer for the series, Adam Jacobs, says: “With the demand for military and history content still going strong, we are delighted to be producing Combat Machines as we evolve this informative and entertaining franchise.”
