9781849087537: Valiant Units of the Cold War (Combat Aircraft)

The RAF's first Cold War strategic bomber, the Vickers Valiant, was procured as an insurance measure in case either the Vulcan or Victor was found to have a serious flaw. The Valiant was the equivalent of the US B-47 Stratojet, and it blazed the trail for the British airborne nuclear deterrent as the aircraft enjoyed a far more active service career than later V-bombers. It was the launch platform for all British free fall nuclear weapons tests both in the Pacific and in central Australia, it took part in the Suez campaign in 1956 and it was the only V-bomber to drop (conventional) weapons in anger until the Falklands operation in 1982. The Valiant was modified to serve in the electronic warfare, strategic reconnaissance and airborne tanker role. It was the first V-bomber to operate down at low level when it was assigned to the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), and the last six squadrons were scheduled to remain in service until 1970. However, the Valiant force had to be grounded in early 1965 when the aircraft succumbed to metal fatigue.

About the Author:

Andrew Brookes completed RAF pilot training after reading history at Leeds University. Following recce and strike tours on Victors, Canberras and Vulcans, during which he logged 3,500 flying hours, he served as a UK nuclear release officer in NATO and was the last operational RAF Commander at the Greenham Common cruise missile base. He was coordinator of air power studies at the RAF Advanced Staff College. He is now Aerospace Analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He publishes and broadcasts widely. He has written twelve aviation books, including Combat Aircraft 72 - Vulcan Units of the Cold War and Combat Aircraft 88 - Victor Units of the Cold War, and he received the Defence Aerospace Journalist of the Year Award in 2004 and 2006.

Review:

“Andrew Brookes's excellent book covers [the] achievements [of the Valian Units] and much more.” ―Aviation History (March 2014)

“Author Andrew Brookes takes a look at the design and development of the Valiant including the build up of various units and the equipment that was used by the aircraft. We also get a good look at its time when it was used to test nuclear bombs in the South Pacific. The changes in mission are also closely followed so we can see how Valiant operations were carried out. Of course there are a goodly number of pilot and crew stories to go along with all of these events. This is very much a part of what makes this such an enticing series. Also included are quite a few full color profiles of Valiants in every camouflage scheme and with every unit that flew the aircraft. The book concludes with a brief synopsis of all the units that flew the aircraft. In all, I found the book to be a superb read about an aircraft that is often overlooked. Most highly recommended.” ―Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (October 2012)

“...enthusiasts of strategic bombing history will find [this book] fascinating.” ―David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com
