VENTURE INTO THE WORLD OF COOL COMBAT COLLECTABLES AND MILITARY ARTIFACTS WITH DISCOVERY'S "COMBAT CASH"

Four Part Series Airs on Wednesdays at 10PM in January

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Military hunter Bob Chatt and his picking partner Owen Thornton put their passion, wallets and reputations on the line in a never-ending pursuit of rare and desirable military artifacts, aka "militaria," in Discovery Channel's COMBAT CASH. Each episode is jam-packed with combat collectables, ranging from tanks to rare GI Joe figures, World War II flame throwers, Saddam Hussein propaganda banners, and Vietnam war-era helicopters, as Bob and Owen hunt down the perfect artifact for their clients. Episodes air on January 11 and 25 at 10PM ET/PT.

Our militaria go-to guys won't take no for an answer, and with stacked odds they go to extraordinary lengths, and heights, to find long lost artifacts. There's no question about it, they love what they do, but for Bob and Owen this is much more than a hobby. Turning rare militaria into cold hard cash is their 24/7 job, and they put it all on the line to satisfy their customers while following their life-long passion for all things military.

Episode 1 Premieres Wednesday, January 11, at 10PM ET/PT

Bob and Owen find a propaganda banner with Saddam Hussein's image, removed from a building in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Bob and Owen set out on a special mission to track down an operational WWII Japanese tank, of which there are estimated to be ten in the world. And military history in the form of a rare BSA 1942 foldout paratrooper bicycle has Owen taking a plunge from thousands of feet to follow his passion for militaria.

Episode 2 Premieres Wednesday, January 11 at 10:30PM ET/PT

WWII military artifacts crash into our modern world of technology as Bob and Owen source and fire WWII guns to add authentic sounds to a videogame project. They later head to a D-Day event to deliver a rare helmet and negotiate a "DUCK" amphibious vehicle, and Owen suits up to storm the beaches with hundreds of WWII re-enactors

Episode 3 Premieres Wednesday, January 25 at 10PM ET/PT

Bob and Owen sell a rare GI Joe action figure to one of the leading authorities on the action figures. They head to San Francisco to meet with a crew of Vietnam veterans who honor fallen soldiers by flying over funerals in a restored Huey, a Vietnam-era helicopter. Bob and Own provide flight jackets and mourning bands to the crew and ride along as the men honor a fallen soldier who recently died in Afghanistan.

Episode 4 Premieres Wednesday, January 25 at 10:30 PM ET/PT

Owen and Bob roll up their sleeves to search through a military museum's graveyard of collectibles for WWII-era ammunition for a Hellcat tank. The owner offers them the bonus of getting to fire off some live rounds. Then the guys light up a special photo shoot with WWII and Vietnam War-era flamethrowers after a photographer contracts them to add heat to a photo shoot, which quickly poses several challenges.

COMBAT CASH is produced for Discovery Channel by Digital Ranch and Rob Lihani serves as executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Anne Geddes is executive producer.
