Description


Accessible and comprehensive, Military Jet Aircraft will appeal to anyone interested in modern military aviation.

From the Avro Vulcan and Boeing B-52 Stratofortress to the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and Northrop B-2A Spirit, this thorough guide looks at more than 50 of the most important jet-engined aircraft developed between 1945 and today. They include dedicated interceptors, bombers, and reconnaissance platforms, as well as modern multirole warplanes such as the F-22, F-35, and Sukhoi Su-27. Organized by country, the book introduces each aircraft with large-format artwork in color, showing it in action wearing authentic markings. Detailed annotations indicate innovative design features and other points of interest. An in-depth description of each aircraft follows, profiling its design and manufacturing development and active deployment history. Along with action photographs, a comprehensive specifications panel gives information on dimensions, power plant, performance, and armament.
