Aviation Book Series


Red Star

The Red Star series focuses on Soviet/Russian and Ukrainian aircraft types, and is meticulously researched and highly illustrated. Some titles concentrate on in-depth coverage a single aircraft type, while others cover several types linked by a common theme.

The core of each book comprises a very comprehensive design and development history of the type, covering each variant and sub-variant. Further chapters look at the structure and equipment of the aircraft in detail, a comparison with rival aircraft designs and a brief look at the type in combat service. Each book includes numerous b+w and/or colour photographs, line drawings, detailed sketches and sometimes colour artwork as well.

Publisher: Midland Publishing, UK Language: English
