CARRIER AIRCRAFT 1917–Present: The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide

Illustrated with detailed colour artworks of naval aircraft and their markings with exhaustive captions and specifications, Carrier Aircraft 1917–Present: The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide is an extensively researched review of the equipment and organisation of the world’s carrier-based air arms and their deployment in conflicts since the end of World War I. Featuring front-line fighters, bombers and attack aircraft as well as anti-submarine aircraft and helicopters, support aircraft and electronic warfare platforms, this book details the models of aircraft in service with each unit along with their individual and squadron markings.

Chapters are divided by nation, profiling the carrier aircraft of the US, the UK, France and Russia, as well as the smaller carrier-capable nations, including Canada and Australia. Tables include full lists of operating units for key aircraft (such as the F-14 Tomcat and Sea Harrier), and each chapter details combat operations (such as Korea, Vietnam, and the Falklands).

Illustrated with more than 250 specially commissioned and up-to-date artworks, the book is an essential reference guide for modellers and any enthusiast with an interest in military aviation.
