Modern Attack Planes

The US Air Power series is the definitive illustrated guide to recent American dominance in the skies. Covering the planes and crews of the USAF as well as Naval, Marine and Army air wings, these books cover a period from World War II through to the present day in which American pilots have prevailed in all combat situations and have laid the foundation for the swift and decisive victories achieved during that time. The 72 pages include well over 110 photographs, 16 pages of which are in colour, and every photo has a detailed caption outlining combat histories and technical specification. The series will cover all the major conflicts in which the US has been involved recently including both Gulf Wars, the Balkans and Afghanistan. Modern Attack Planes features the aircraft and weapons that contribute to dominance on the battlefield; aircraft such as the F-117 'Stealth', the A-10 'Tankbuster' and the AV-8B Harrier II, as well as a selection of the vast array of weaponry they are capable of carrying including laser-guided bombs, anti-ship and close air support missiles, JDAM and many others. Anthony A. Evans has been publishing books on military matters for over 20 years. His most recent is The Gulf War in the GI Series. Other books in the series will include: Modern Air Superiority Planes Modern Bombers Modern Electronic and Surveillance Planes Airwar over the Gulf I Airwar over the Gulf II The Balkans Afghanistan - Operation Enduring Freedom
