Description

The development of combat aircraft may be regarded with some justification as the cutting - edge of aviation technology, for it is here that the stakes and budgets are highest, and the only lives that are at risk are those of the professional military pilots.
The advent of the turbojet marked a watershed in fighter progress, opening the door to dramatic speed increases and the prospect of supersonic flight, yet at the same time presenting the designers and operators with a whole new set of challenges to meet.
In Supersonic Fighter Development, the author traces the lineage of these aircraft from the " transonic " era of the Hawker Hunter, F - 86 Sabre and the MiG - 15, through the " obsolescent " generation, the Teen - series and contemporaries, to the future generation currently in progress.
For the first time the subject is considered in its entirety, the author explaining by example the pressures, both technical and tactical, which have gone towards moulding the aircraft produced in three very different generations of technical advance.
Every key fighter is discussed, consideration being given to its design requirements and overall success, and its peers and its effect on future design trends. ( ... )
À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Roy Braybrook

Roy Braybrook graduated from Manchester University ( England ) in 1954 and, having ambitions to design fighters, went to Hawker Aircraft as a post - graduate apprentice on a two - year course. 


After an interruption due to National Service - during which he spent most of his time on loan to the Royal Aircraft Establishment ( R.A.E. ) at Farnborough ( Hampshire, England ) - Roy Braybrook returned to Kingston upon Thames ( London, England ) to become a senior project engineer in the H.A.L. Project Office working under Sir Sydney Camm ( 1893 - 1956 ) on the preliminary design of V / STOL combat aircraft, fighters and military trainers. 


In 1968 he became head of sales support activities at Kingston, representing the design department in world - wide marketing efforts with the Harrier and, later, the Hawk. Then, when Hawkers became part of British Aerospace ( now BAE Systems plc ) under nationalisation, he was appointed technical marketing adviser to Kingston - Brough Division. 


Roy Braybrook resigned in 1980 to become a freelance aviation writer and consultant, specialising in combat aircraft, V / STOL and trainers. He represents a number of overseas aviation and defence magazines in Great Britain and used to write one or two books each year. 


Here are some of his publications : Battle for the Falklands : Air Forces ( with Michael Roffe, Men - at - Arms, 1982 ), Hawk ( British Aerospace, 1984 ), Hunter : A personal view of the ultimate Hawker Fighter ( 1987 ), F - 16 Fighting Falcon ( 1991 ).

J.H. Haynes & Co. Limited was founded on May 18th, 1960. The first manual actually entitled Haynes Owners Workshop Manual, for the Austin - Healey Sprite, was published in 1965. in 1972, the Group’s headquarters were established in Sparkford ( Somerset, England ). Two years later, the U.S. Company was formed. During the 1990's, foreign companies were formed in both France ( Éditions Haynes, 1993, liquidated in 2006 ) and Sweden ( Haynes Nordiska, 1996, closed in 2016 ). The next year, the U.S. operation established a branch in Australia. Haynes books and manuals are published in 15 languages : English ( including British, American and Australian variants ), French, Swedish, Chinese, Japanese, German, Czech, Finnish, Polish, Bulgarian, Hebrew, Greek, Danish, Spanish ( including Latino - American Spanish versions ) and Russian.
