British and American Aircraft in Russia Prior To 1941

Product code:  70883AVI
Back in 1906, the Wright Brothers offered their biplane to the Russian Ministry of War, but Tsarist generals were not interested in this aircraft. In the course of the formation of Russian military aviation in 1910–1911 the regime began to acquire British and American airplanes in large numbers. Their role conceded significantly to the influence of French designs, and under the Provisional Government in 1917 supplies from Britain increased, licences were obtained there for several types that wer...

Vampire Boys: True Tales from Operators of the RAF's First Single-Engined Jet

Product code:  67391AVI
Sliding out of the shadows of World War Two, the de Havilland Vampire - accompanied by the distinctive whine of its Goblin engine - quickly proved itself an effective alternative to piston-powered fighters. After entering operational service with the RAF (as the service's first single-engined jet) in 1946, the Vampire - sought by air forces the world over - held a number of notable records: the first fighter to exceed 500 mph, the first to set a world altitude record of almost 60,000 ft, the fir...

Product code:  77181AVI
Always at the forefront of Arab states when it came to the development of its armed forces and armament industry, during the 1970s Iraq embarked on an ambitious program of becoming self-sufficient in production of almost all equipment and ammunition necessary for its armed forces.
