This is a fascinating and informative guide to over 120 of the most important military aircraft since 1945. Packed with over 2000 color and black and white photographs and artworks. Includes full dimensions, weights, performance and armament for each aircraft.
Unique graphic features show specific features compared to other aircraft of the same type - e.g.. firepower, or range and payload - allowing instant direct comparison.
This book also includes current UK and European fighter aircraft as well as less well known aircraft from around the world.
More than 120 bombers, transports, and tankers, all still in service around the world today, are featured here on heavily illustrated two-page spreads. From early jets such as the MiG-15 to the $2 billion B-2A Spirit, the wide range of aircraft employed by today’s air forces is thoroughly examined in text, graphics, and color and archival black-and-white photographs.
Jim Winchester has many years' experience writing about aviation. He is the author of several books including Fighter, Classic Airliners: Lockheed Constellation, and Flight International's World Aircraft and Systems Directory.
