Description - Modern Military Aircraft by Thomas Newdick

Illustrated with hundreds of detailed artworks of aircraft and their markings, Modern Military Aircraft is a comprehensive study of the fighting aircraft of every nationality from the beginning of the Cold War to the present. The book is split into two volumes, the first detailing aircraft in the Cold War era, and the second outlining aircraft from 1990 to the present day. Chapters are divided by theatre, then further subdivided by conflict and nationality. The first volume provides a comprehensive study of the airplanes in service with NATO and the Warsaw Pact from the end of World War II until the reunification of Germany in 1989. Famous aircraft employed in various Cold War conflicts are included, such as the Gloster Meteor, MiG-17, and Republic F-84 Thunderstreak, as well as lesser-known models, such as the Yak 23, Shenyang F-6, and FMA Pucara. The second volume provides a detailed analysis of aircraft since 1990, including ubiquitous workhorses such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, Dassault Rafale, and MiG-21, as well as the latest in aviation technology, such as the Eurofighter EF2000, Sukhoi Su-30, and F-22A Raptor. Every type of aircraft is included, from frontline fighters, through transports, attack helicopters, reconnaissance aircraft, long-range bombers, and stealth fighters. Packed with more than 500 colour artworks and photographs with exhaustive specifications, Modern Military Aircraft is a key reference for modellers and enthusiasts of modern military aviation.

Author Biography - Thomas Newdick

Thomas Newdick, an aviation and defence writer and editor, has researched and written numerous articles for various specialist magazines and journals examining military and civil aviation, twentieth-century military history, and defence technology. He has contributed to books such as The Encyclopedia of Military Jets, and is a regular contributor to Combat Aircraft and Aircraft Illustrated magazines. He is on the editorial staff of both Guideline Publications and Aeroplane. Tom Cooper, from Austria, is a military-aviation journalist and historian. Following a career in a worldwide transportation business - in which, during his extensive travels in Europe and the Middle East, he established excellent contacts - he moved into writing. An earlier fascination with post-Second World War military aviation has narrowed to focus on smaller air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives of material. Concentrating primarily on air warfare that has previously received scant attention, he specializes in investigative research on little-known African and Arab air forces, as well as the Iranian Air Force. Cooper has published 18 books - including the unique 'Arab MiGs' series, which examines the deployment and service history of major Arab air forces in conflicts with Israel - as well as over 200 articles on related topics, providing a window into a number of previously unexamined yet fascinating conflicts and relevant developments.
