American Interceptor - US Navy Convoy Fighter Projects

Product code:  58948AVI
The Soviet Union first successful atomic bomb detonation in August 1949 was a wakeup call for US Navy planners. The possibility of a single Soviet aircraft wiping out an entire convoy of merchant ships with a nuclear weapon had suddenly become very real. With military budgets having shrunk prior to the Korean War, it was simply not possible to provide a US Navy escort for every convoy. But what if those vessels could be provided with an effective means of self-defence - an aircraft able to funct...

Product code:  46988AVI
Any USAAF pilot who flew the mission to Hollandia on the fateful afternoon of 16 April 1944 in New Guinea would remember it for the rest of their lives.

The way home for more than three hundred bombers and fighters was blocked by a towering weather front whose thunderstorms rose well above any altitude they could reach. Over enemy territory and caught between mountains...

A-6 Intruder in US Navy Attack Squadron Service - Colors & Markings Series 6

Product code:  39679AVI
Grumman’s A-6 Intruder was certainly not one of the most beautiful aircraft designs ever to come off the drawing boards, but in terms of being able to perform the job for which it was intended, it may well be one of the best designs in military aviation history. During its 34 years of service, the Intruder displayed a variety of aircraft paint schemes and markings, ranging from some of the most colourful ever applied to a combat aircraft to some that were so subdued that the various squadron and...

Europe@War 22: From Julietts to Yasens - History of Soviet Cruise-Missile Submarines 1958-2022

Product code:  70685AVI
One solution to the problems facing the Soviet Navy was to develop submarines armed with large, heavy, long-range stand-off anti-ship cruise missiles. These unique combinations of platforms and weapons systems would come to pose a threat that forced the US Navy to adapt its own naval strategy and equipment to counter them. While never used in anger in their intended role, life aboard these submarines could be extremely hazardous for their crews, with a number of accidents – including the tota...
