Aircraft Compared and Contrasted

Aircraft is a fascinating exploration of the world's finest military aircraft, compared and contrasted: from the German Fokker D.III of World War I ranged against the Allied SPAD XIII, through World War II adversaries such as the Hurricane and the Bf 109, to modern aircraft which have met in combat such as the MiG-29 and the F-16. This book also evaluates rival aircraft which saw service on the same side, analyzing which fared best in combat against a common adversary. Including 100 aircraft from biplanes to today’s B-2 ‘Stealth’, Aircraft features fighters, bombers, interceptors, carrier-borne aircraft, helicopters, reconnaissance and, transport planes. Packed with excellent aerial photographs and in-depth analysis and information, Aircraft will appeal to any military aviation enthusiast.
