SKU GMT-A12
Brand GMT
Category Books

Monograph STRANGEFIGHTERS 2 | AKA F-104s Slightly Less Strange but Still Peculiar.Monograph #12 "Strangefighters 2" is the second work devoted to the F-104 from all the aviations that have used it, and it tells additional stories and details, including relatively little known details, about the Starfighter.In particular, it discusses what was perceived as an unsatisfactory feature of the aircraft (the poor range and autonomy, moreover due to the initial design approach), the reconnaissance variants (though not as "esoteric" as those mentioned in the first Monograph No. 8 "STRANGEFIGHTERS") and of the so-called "special loads" that could be employed by fighter-bombers, with some notes on the various colorations and camouflages, to which are added (more or less) brief digressions on other topics deemed to be of some interest in any case.The monograph is then completed by an interesting modeling section that presents in detail the construction of a 1/32-scale model of the F-104A.Again, then, we repeat what was already said in the first work on the subject, namely that what is set out has absolutely no pretension to be a definitive work but rather is only intended to bring to the reader's attention some aspects that might stimulate further and more in-depth research.The volume consists of168 pages with hundreds of b/w and color photographs.The author, Aldo Zanfi, is an expert on modern military aviation, well known to readers for having published several aviation-related articles in Italian magazines in the field.

Book Operation Eldorado Canyon | The 1986 U.S. Bombing of Libya - HARPIA PUBLISHING.If asked to pinpoint the beginning of the war against Islamic extremism, most would probably say September 11, 2001. However, there has been tension between Islamic autocracies and Western governments for centuries. In the early 1980s, the boogeyman du jour was Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, who sponsored numerous acts of terrorism throughout Europe. After a series of attacks resulted in the deaths of Americans, U.S. President Ronald Reagan decided to strike back.Operation Eldorado Canyon is usually remembered as a long-range mission by F-111s based in Britain. However, it was an incredibly complex mission involving two Navy aircraft carriers and a unique aerial refueling plan that involved more than half of the then-new KC-10 tanker inventory. For the first time, the events leading up to this operation are described, including previously undisclosed contingency operations, missions that test the F-111's ability to carry out such an extensive mission, and the mission itself by the crews who flew it.The USAF has classified 'forever' the names of the F-111 crews who participated in the mission. After a 20-year reunion of RAF Lakenheath participants, one of the planners, Jim Rotramel, began collecting their memories. He was later able to expand the story to include the KC-10 portion of the mission. Finally, through his informal membership in the Old Geezer Fighter Pilots, he came into contact with Navy veterans who participated not only in Eldorado Canyon, but also in Operation Prairie Fire the month before that saw the first combat employment of the anti-ship Harpoon. missile.Like any post-mission fighter pilot debriefing, this book lays out the unfolding of the mission: the good, the bad, the ugly and even the funny! It is a truly unique insight into what it meant to plan and execute this daring mission and how it could have ended in humiliating disaster at several points.

Brand AK INTERACTIVE
Category Books

Book Soviets in Berlin - Bilingual English-Spanish. 156 pages. Semi-rigid cover. This modeling book contains exquisitely crafted dioramas and vehicles to tell the story of the fall of Berlin. A multitude of references and stories behind the works inspire each of the authors to tell a story with each piece. Not only is the design, painting and construction process explained step by step, but also the keys to achieve an excellent level of aging with different effects: mud, splashes, drops, chips, dust, dirt, etc. In January 1945 the Krásnaya Ármiya or Red Army, after three and a half years of bitter fighting without quarter, launched a series of strategic operations that took it into the heart of the Third Reich. Its relentless advance toward Berlin culminated in April 1945. There it fought its last major battle on the European continent, achieving an overwhelming victory over German forces. The massive use of artillery and armored vehicles in ground operations was one of the keys to this triumph.

Book Vought F4U Corsair Volume I - Kagero.Vought F4U Corsair was one of the best and most famous fighters of the World War II era. Developed beginning in 1938, it did not see mass production until mid-1942. Initially disqualified for carrier operations, it was delivered to U.S. Marine Corps combat units based ashore.The first volume covers the design and development phase from the XF4U-1 prototype through the F4U-1, F4U-1A and F4U-1D models to the F4U-2 night fighter version and the XF4U-3 high-altitude prototype. A separate chapter was devoted to the camouflage and markings of Corsairs serving with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps between 1942 and 1945. Another chapter, based on hundreds of pages of original war diaries of Marine squadrons that operated with the Corsairs, details their operational service during the Solomons campaign and the air offensive against the Japanese fortress of Rabaul, which covered the period between February 1943 and early 1944. It was in the South Pacific that the privateers proved their valor and earned a well-deserved reputation.104 pages9 painting diagrams19 artworksformat (dimensions): (210x295 mm)laminated coated papersoftcover binding

Book Stratus Polish Wings 35 - Supermarine Spitfire V. Polish Squadrons over DieppeAuthor: Wojtek MatusiakIllustrators: Robert Grudzien ISBN: 9788367227018Publication date: 30/08/2022Format: A4 paperback, 96 pages (96 in color)2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the Allied landing at Dieppe, France, on August 19, 1942. It was one of the most controversial battles of World War II and also involved large-scale air operations to provide direct support for the landing and defend soldiers and the fleet against the Luftwaffe. This book is a tribute to the Polish 1st Wing, the Fighter Command Wing, which was most successful during the operation. The wing provided 10 percent of the Spitfire squadrons involved in the battle, suffered 3.5 percent of the casualties and was assigned, by Fighter Command, 17 percent of all enemy aircraft destroyed. 303 and 317 squadrons were the best "winning" units that day. It is worth noting that they managed to achieve this while still flying the Spitfire V variant, while some Fighter Command squadrons already had the greatly improved Mk IX. Over 300 carefully selected and extensively signed photos show Spitfires from five Polish squadrons, as well as the people who held and flew them to support the landing at Dieppe.

Nation: Germany

Book Heinkel He 115 Developmental and Operational History 1937-1952 - CHANDOS PUBLICATIONS.The Heinkel He 115 has been misrepresented in the literature over the years to a far greater extent than almost any other type of aircraft built in similarly small numbers. It was an excellent and solid design, but its history is full of irony. Before World War II, the almost universal introduction of retractable aircraft undercarriages placed seaplanes at an insurmountable disadvantage compared to land-based airplanes. This inherent handicap made the He 115 semi-obsolete even though it entered service late in 1939. Göring's decision to give the Luftwaffe responsibility for the aerial minelayer, and then the vast majority of the torpedo attack role, meant that by the second half of 1941 the surviving He 115s were segregated into a handful of Lufttorpedo Staffeln, with the last of the design, for lack of a better alternative, serving on the front lines until early 1944. Perhaps the most remarkable part of its history is this, obsolete anachronism notwithstanding, the He 115 was unique in that it was the only twin-engine seaplane that ever launched aerial torpedoes in anger during World War II, and it did so in quantity.With an extremely detailed history of production and service (including service with other nations and postwar service), as well as specially commissioned drawings, color profiles, photographs from private collections, and accurate casualty lists, this volume draws information from a wide variety of sources in order to eliminate mythologies and present the reality of the He 115's life and service career in greater detail and accuracy than ever before.Layout: 392Size -A4 Images - 700+Color Profiles - 130+Other - Highly accurate scale drawings based on surviving airframes of the aircraft, production and loss lists in addition to examination of Stammkennzeichen, color maps.

North-American OV-10 Bronco - WARPAINT SERIES 140
SKU WARP-140
Brand WARPAINT
Nation: United States of America
Period: Modern
Type: Aircraft
Category Books

Book North-American OV-10 Bronco written by Mike VerierThe complete story of the first true multi-role combat aircraft, the OV-10 Bronco, still in operational flight after nearly sixty years of service, is told here for the first time in a 104-page War Painting bumper. Detailed first-hand information gathered over many years has enabled the author to bring together the many facets of this extraordinarily versatile aircraft, including pre-cursors, competitors and prototypes, through Vietnam and combat service with some eleven U.S. and foreign air forces, and its part in the development of modern precision weapons, to its astonishing range of uses since. These include fighting drug cartels in Colombia, wildfires in California, mosquitoes in South Carolina, and ISIS in northern Iraq. In addition, German "jet" Broncos are finally described in complete and accurate detail. The world's largest restoration project and the current training of U.S. and NATO JTACS update the story.The declassified information has made it possible to detail for the first time all of the long-nosed Model D conversions and all of the Broncos that served in Desert Storm, their preparation, the epic transcontinental deployment of a squadron by air, and the key roles played by the Broncos during the war.The detailed and revealing narrative is profusely illustrated with fully captioned photographs-many never before seen-and supported by personal accounts, individual aircraft histories, airframe listings, scale plans and specially commissioned artwork with complete color scheme information.Warpaint 140 North-American/Rockwell OV-10A/OV-10BAuthor: Mike VerierContents: 104 pages
