Tupolev Tu-95/Tu-142

£900.00

Product description

" Much has been said and written about the Tu-95, known as the Bear, which to some is the personification of the tell-tale Soviet threat. In recent months the Tu-95 has been the source of great anxiety for the U.S., with operational exercises coming close to American borders, causing concern and raising eyebrows in the political world.
This informative, new history explores the final chapter of the Tu-95, which has not been covered by other volumes. Containing many previously untold facts and shedding new light on the Tu-95's development history and service career, it is certain to be extremely popular. Also included are details of crucial target information and rare materials obtained in the course of many obscure missions.
In recent times, the type has again assumed a significant position in Russia's strategic bomber arm (DA), and the fleet is being upgraded to take new models of cruise missiles. Beautifully illustrated throughout with numerous photos from the latest exercises, as well as vivid pictures of nose art and unit insignia, this is not one to be missed by aviation enthusiasts, particularly those with an interest in contemporary Russian aviation.
About the Author:
Yefim Gordon is one of Russia's leading aviation writers and publishers. He is the author of numerous books on Soviet aviation. "

Book in as new condition. Printed in 2009, first edition.
