‘At the Controls’ is a new series of military reference books. Based on the unrivalled technical resources of Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft, the second title in the‘At the Controls’ series uses specially- commissioned colour artwork, photographs and diagrams to take you on a mission in the F-117 Nighthawk, better known as ‘Stealth’.
The F-117 is a precision attack aircraft, designed to be ‘invisible’ to radar. At the Controls takes you on an actual combat mission with the F-117, spearheading the US air assault on Iraq in 1991. Undetected by the enemy air defense system, F-117s attacked vital installations in Baghdad itself, opening the way to future Allied attacks. At the Controls reveals how to navigate, refuel and approach the target in an F-117; how to attack enemy command bunkers with laser-guided bombs and survive in the face of modern anti-aircraft missile systems.
