The thunder of fire is capable of flying at very high speed and showing an extraordinary maneuverability, it can fly silently thanks to the "murmur" flight and has a very powerful machine gun, a 20mm vulcan gatling M61 and a 6000 shots/minute shooting cadence

Tonnerre de Feu (Blue Thunder in English) was an American television series broadcast between 1984 and 1985. The series was inspired by the film of the same name, released in 1983, which staged a futuristic combat helicopter used by Los Angeles police . The series followed the adventures of Frank Chaney, a Los Angeles police helicopter pilot, and his teammate, Richard Lymangood, while using the Blue Thunder helicopter to fight crime in the streets of the city.

The Blue Thunder helicopter was a high-tech device equipped with numerous weapons and advanced surveillance devices, which made it a formidable weapon for the Los Angeles police. The series featured Frank and Richard's missions as they faced dangerous criminals and resolved difficult surveys, while sailing in the complexities of the police.

The series was created by Bruce Lansbury and produced by Tom Greene and Michael Laughlin. It was broadcast on the CBS channel for a single season of 14 episodes. Although it did not have great success during its broadcast, it has been rebroadcast several times since and has acquired a base of faithful fans.
