Much of the fascinating which Soviet aircraft hold for the analyst or enthusiast stems from the thick fog of secrecy with which the Soviet Union surrounds its military activities. Details which in the case of Western aircraft can be found from the nearest reference book are in Russian aircraft a matter for conjecture ; frequently little more than the basic shape can be relied upon, and often not even that.
