Modern Military Aircraft Review

Modern Military Aircraft

By Ryan Cunningham

I received a free copy of Modern Military Aircraft from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Technical Guide: Modern Military Aircraft is an extensively researched review of the military aircraft deployed by the world’s air forces in recent conflicts in the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and elsewhere.

Organized alphabetically by manufacturer, this book includes every type of aircraft in use in the world today, from the F-22 Raptor through the Dassault Mirage 2000 to the MiG-29 and Su-33. The book includes multi-role fighters, ground-attack aircraft, high-level bombers, reconnaissance aircraft, carrier aircraft, and unmanned drones. It is illustrated with profile artworks, three-views, and special cutaway artworks of the more famous aircraft in service, such as the F-15E Strike Eagle, Sukhoi Su-27, and Eurofighter Typhoon. Illustrated with more than 110 artworks, Modern Military Aircraft is an essential reference guide for modelers and enthusiasts with an interest in modern military aircraft.

Summary from Goodreads.

If you are interested in military aircraft, what their specs are, and a summary about the aircraft, then I could not have found the more prefect book for you!

Each of the military aircraft are split into the different generations of fighters that their are, as well a section on bombers, strike and attack aircraft, and transport and reconnaissance. Each section includes a nice variety of aircraft, aside from the fifth generation fighters (mainly because they are so new that there are so few models of them). Each aircraft has a photo-realistic drawing (I assume what would be an actual design sketch), and lots of the older more known aircraft have photos included, with some incredible action shots in here.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find my favourite bomber included in here, the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit. I cannot remember how I actually found out about this aircraft, especially since I memories of it from when I was around 9 or 10 years old, so to be able to read up about it and see the sketch designs of it is amazing.

The perfect coffee table book for aircraft lovers.
