This is an illustrated A - Z catalogue of modern bombers, from the Cold War, the Falklands Black Buck raids, and Operation El Dorado Canyon, through to the Gulf Wars and the present day. It includes over 300 identification photographs, in colour and black and white, from some of the world's greatest aviation libraries. It contains detailed specification boxes for every aircraft listed, with up-to-date information about country of origin, first flight, power, armament, size, weights and performance. The book begins with a history of modern bombers, from the USA's Boeing B-47 Stratojet and the Soviet Union's Tupolevs of the Cold War through to the Lockheed Martin F-117A Nighthawk and the Panavia Tornado of the Gulf Wars. There are anecdotes about the personalities involved in bomber development and combat, with fascinating quotes from political leaders such as John F Kennedy and Dick Cheney. This superbly illustrated book, with over 300 pictures - including many rarely-seen wartime photographs - provides enthusiasts and historians with key information about bombers since the beginning of the Cold War. It is a must-have reference book for everyone interested in these incredible tactical aircraft.Biografía del autor:
