Modern Military Aircraft is a fascinating and informative guide to more than 120 of the most important military aircraft since 1945. Its information-packed pages cover a broad range of aircraft, from high-tech superfighters such as the Lockheed Martin F-16, Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk and McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, to the aircraft they were originally designed to counter: Russian types such as the MiG-29 ‘Fulcrum’, Su-27 ‘Flanker’ and Tupolev Tu-22M ‘Backfire’. The book also includes current UK and European fighter aircraft such as the Dassault Rafale, JAS 39 Gripen and Eurofighter Typhoon, as well as less well-known aircraft from around the world.

This is a fascinating, colourful and fact-packed guide. Each aircraft is covered in detail, with annotated colour profile artworks, colour and black-&-white photographs, feature boxes outlining its development, technical specifications, performance data, and variants. Unique graphics allow the reader to compare specific features such as range, speed and ceiling with contemporary aircraft.

Featuring such well-known manufacturers as Agusta, Boeing, Grumman, Lockheed, McDonnell Douglas, Sukhoi and many more, Modern Military Aircraft is a beautifully presented, landscape format, guide to 120 of the world’s finest military aircraft.
