Aircraft that no radar can find, that no missile can strike - it sounds like science fiction, but is fast becoming a reality.
This magnificently illustrated book describes the aircraft and the technology behind the most significant developments in aerial warfare since the jet engine and the atomic bomb. It penetrates the cloud of secrecy, disinformation and speculation to provide a detailed survey of the principles of Stealth and of the current and future uses of this top-secret technology.
Basic Stealth concepts are revealed, including the careful design of the shape, size and camouflage colours of the next generation of warplanes. More sophisticated techniques are examined, including the use of new radar-absorbing materials, the control of heat and sound emissions, the use of sophisticated electronic warfare systems and the development of new operating tactics. Also described are some of the methods that will be used to counter the dramatic advantages of Stealth technology and how the never-ending battle of measure and countermeasure will continue.
