9781580070850: Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-29 - Warbird Tech Vol. 41

In the late 1960s the Soviet Union was working on a fourth-generation jet fighter concept. These aircraft would form the backbone of Warsaw Pact air forces in the next decade. The Soviet aerospace industry began considering enhancing combat capabilities with new air-to-air missiles and a sophisticated weapons control system. Thus the MiG-29 was born. High maneuverability, a high thrust-to-weight ratio, a wide speed range, and special short-range missiles are just a few of the MiG-29's special characteristics.

This book extensively covers the concept, variants, upgrades, carrier trials, service, sales, and what the future holds for the MiG-29. Find out how the MiG-29 paved the way for aerodynamic refinements, improved handling, stability, and technological changes that simplified the building process. Learn details on the MiG-29's engine and controls. Powered by two Klimov NPP (Izotov) RD-33 afterburning turbofans rated at 5,040 kgp (11,111 lb st) at full military power, and armed with an internal gun, short- and medium-range air-to-air missiles, unguided rockets, and free-fall bombs, the MiG-29 is truly a marvel in military aircraft. Authors Yefim Gordon and Peter Davison use over 300 photos to illustrate the story of the MiG-29. Topics covered include design, development, structural detail, international production, trials, comparisons, overseas sales, and much more. This book is a must have for all aircraft enthusiasts!

About the Author:

Yefim Gordon is one of Russia's leading aviation writers and publishers. He is the author of numerous books on Soviet aviation.

Review:

Overall, an outstanding book on Russia's best dogfighter. What makes it even more appealing is that it is very competitively priced. -Modeling Madness, September 2005, reviewed by Scott Van Aken (Modeling Madness 2005-09-28)

This book does an excellent job of covering the history of this plane, starting out with the initial concept and devlelopment. This is a welcome addition to the Warbird Tech series, and one that is bound to be popular with those who have a stack of Italeri 1/72 or Academy 1/48 kits in their closet. -Internet Modeler, October 2005, reviewed by Chris Banyai-Riepl (Internet Modeler 2005-10-03)

Yet again this Warbird Tech volume is of very high quality and a worthy investment for modelling reference. The book will serve both history buffs and modeller well. -Hyperscale, February 2006, reviewed by Ken Bowes (Hyperscale 2006-02-28)
