Modern Military Aircraft is a comprehensive guide to the world's fighting aircraft since World War II, from the earliest jet fighters and basic piston-engined bombers, to today's high-tech and stealthy superfighters. Aircraft featured include: the F-86 Sabre, which fought its way to convincing victory over Russia's MiG-15 in the world's first jet-versus-jet battles in Korea; the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, the deadliest fleet fighter ever built, which has played an important part in the conflicts of the late 20th and early 21st centuries; and Russia's export miracles the Sukhoi Su-27, currently in service with air arms across the world in an array of variants. This book contains detailed features on more than 220 combat aircraft and helicopters from the past 65 years. Presented alphabetically by manufacturer, each aircraft is covered in detail, with feature boxes outlining its development, technical specifications, performance data and variants. Unique graphics allow the reader to compare specific features like firepower, troop-carrying capacity, and bombload with those of other aircraft of the same type.

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 and Shenyang F-6. 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 color artworks and photographs with exhaustive specifications, Modern Military Aircraft is a key reference for modelers and enthusiasts of modern military aviation.

Today's nose art has become the rule and not the exception throughout the bomber and tanker fores of Strategic Air Command, and although Tactical Air Command frowns on non-standard markings of any sort, several TAC gained Air National Guard units have artwork on their aircraft. Tradition plays a large part in modem nose art. As shown in Randy Walkers' new book cartoons and sexy ladies have returned. Names like "Memphis Belle", "Chow Hound" and "Maid in the USA", that once went to war on B-17s and B-24s are now carried by B-52s and FB-111s, as well as many other modem aircraft. This modem nose art is often applied by a professional artist, though it is sometimes painted by members of the unit, and in the process some excellent artwork has been created.
