The Aviation Fact File/Modern Fighting Aircraft series comprised a number of large format (almost A3 size) hardback books focusing on modern military aircraft operated by NATO and the West. Each volume included a concise development history and a look at the aircraft's operational career. However, the main appeal of this series was the illustrations. With typically more than 100 photographs (mostly in colour), colour drawings, a cutaway drawing, line drawings and dozens of explanatory diagrams - all presented in the familiar Salamander style - each title provided a highly pictorial introduction to the subject.

Description


( … ) Readers will be able to follow the development of the aircraft from the relatively simple configurations originally proposed to the U.S.N., through the long series of variants which were deployed and combat - proven - including information on Israel's mysterious F - 4P and RF - 4E ( S ) - to the exotic but never - built single - seater, F - 4T air - superiority variant, and swing - wing F - 4 ( FVS ).

 

The Phantom story is far from over. Even as this book was in preparation, a consortium of U.S. companies was drawing up plans for the final version documented in these pages - the " Super Phantom " re - engined variant with modernised avionics and greatly - improved performance. The brutal shape of the F - 4 seems destined to play a significant role in air power well into the 1990's at least.

Reviewed (Amazon) in the United States on March 11, 2015 about the HARRIER, its early History from Anibal Madeira


One of the most iconic combat aircrafts of the world which truly deserves to be in this series is definitively the Harrier. With capabilities that almost no other fixed wing craft can equal, this versatile airplane can provide air support, recon and even limited air superiority in truly any modern combat situation, even in the absence of airfields or aircraft carriers.
This large sized book has amazing photographs, technical readouts, and the history of the development of the plane since the P-1127 and the earliest Pegasus motors. The cooperation between BAe and McDonnel Aircraft, the diplomacy and political tug of war to provide the financing for the Harrier II project.

In this book, you’ll find information regarding the GR3, GR5, AV-8A/B and the Sea Harrier. When this book was published the GR7 and GR9 weren’t developed yet. There are recently published books that cover the most recent versions.

Probably the best chapter of this book is the Harrier in action where you can get a glimpse of the superb capabilities of this machine in true combat in the Falklands conflict, where it wasn’t shot down a single time in air to air combat always beating the much faster Mirage III and other foes. This chapter could be somewhat bigger with more descriptions of the engagements.

This book is somewhat technical and probably only an aeronautic engineer will understand everything within, but it’s a beautiful and informative work written by one of the greatest air military experts, Bill Gunston.
