US Army has made use of weapons as part of ‘Secret mission’ Tom Cruise
The idea of ‘Mission Impossible’ film series is not possible without Tom Cruise. In the sixth part of the film i.e. ‘Mission Impossible Fallout’, they have done stunting stunts that they have never done before. In one sequence of the film, he will also be flying helicopters himself and riding on the stunts.
But the movie that made them superstar super-night, the movie that made her an action star, did not know how to run it on a motorcycle when signing that film. The film’s name is ‘Top Gun’. This film, which was released almost 32 years ago, created history as soon as it was released. Not only in the case of earnings but also a ‘secret mission’ of the American army was completed by the film.
‘Deal’ between the US Army and filmmakers
The film ‘Top Gun’ is based on an article published in a magazine in California in 1983 with the same name. This article was about the US Navy’s training program ‘Strike Fighter Tactician Instructor Program’ (SFTI). SFTI is also called Top Gun. Under this program, pilots associated with Navy are given the training to fly fighter jets.
It is said that there was a ‘deal’ between the US government and the makers of the film, only to connect the navy among the youth, to create a craze about blowing a fighter plane. This claim was also made in all the film’s reviews.
The mission of such a completed army
In the film, Tom Cruise played Naval Fighter Pete Maverick Mitchell. In the film, he can be seen flying fighter jet F-14A Tomcat. Seeing their amazing feats made by jet in the air, young people were so impressed at that time, that in the sense of love of the country love within them, the number of soldiers in the US army increased by 20,000 more every year. Of these, most of the recruits, about 16,000 in the Navy. This information was given in the U.S. Navy’s Magazine ‘Proceedings’.
The counter of the army engaged outside the cinema hall
Seeing Tom Cruise’s ‘Top Gun’ at that time, there was such a frenetic recruitment among the people that he was opened to the counter outside the cinema hall for his recruitment. According to a report from Time Magazine, Navy has set up a recruitment booth in big cinemas to cash in on the success of the film ‘Top Gun’. That year the army has got the most applications. According to a report, there was an increase of about 500 percent in the number of Naval Aviators.
In this sense, Tom Cruise contributed 500 percent to the strength of the US military.
Checks of millions of rupees given by manufacturers to the US Army
The real fighter jet was used in the film ‘Top Gun’. Army’s air station, real aircraft carrier, plane and real pilots were used. Instead of all, film producers paid $ 1.8 million to the army. On an average, Makers gave about five lakh rupees per hour.
US Army also got scratched script
After the film ‘Top Gun’, not only did the recruitment application increase in the US Army, but the script of many films also became full. Impressed by the film’s success, many filmmakers started preparing to make an army-based film. The resignation of the army was necessary for this. So, around 200 movie scripts have arrived in the headquarters within a month.
