I know there's been a lot of back and forth on this specific series and it's locked now, but please add:

S00E01 - "The Tunnels of Okinawa" (Premiere Date: October 2016)
Description:
The tide of war in the Pacific has now fully turned against the Imperial Japanese forces. In a fierce and brutal island hopping campaign, the Americans are winning battle after battle, rapidly gaining ground in their ultimate goal of invading mainland Japan. However, the Japanese decide that the island of Okinawa will be their last bastion of defense. It is a key strategic location for the Americans, but as Japanese territory, the Japanese will defend it at all costs.
Appx Runtime: 54 Minutes

S00E02 - "Battleship Yamato" (Premiere Date: March 28, 2018)
Description:
In 1934 the Japanese begin designing The Yamato, the most powerful battleship in history. Japan is determined to retain control in the Pacific so builds a ship 30 percent larger than anything their enemies have. Constructed in absolute secrecy, the Japanese go to extraordinary lengths to ensure no detail is revealed.

Note the page states "WWII Mega Weapons" in a header, but if you look at the address or the drop-down menu for season 3, that's where you get to these two specials.

Checked the page, found the episodes here: http://www.pbs.org/nazi-mega-weapons/se ... a-weapons/
They don't appear to be classified as regular episodes or as specials. Why are you saying that they are specials as opposed to part of Season 3?
I figure they belong, I am just not sure where.

Soooooo.....I figured out that the two episodes that you want listed in Specials are actually already in Season 3. S03E05, "Pacific Megaships" is actually "Battleship Yamamoto" and "The Tunnels of Okinawa" is actually S03E06, "Japanese Superfortress". So those episodes are already entered. Having explained all of this, this entire Series https://www.thetvdb.com/series/nazi-mega-weapons-pbs is actually a duplicate of https://www.thetvdb.com/series/nazi-megastructures which was created in 2013. The Mega-weapons series was created in 2019. Thus, the 2019 edition is being deleted as we don't knowingly allow duplicate series.

Sorry, didn't get notified of reply. Thanks for the clarification. I'm good with that too. It does appear looking into history on the forum that this has gone back and forth quite a bit (megastructures vs it's own). I could care less, just would like consistency :)

thanks mwkurt.
