From the team that published the critically acclaimed and hugely successful 'Famous Russian Aircraft' series comes a book that is the authoritative guide to all of the aircraft flown by the Soviet Air Force in World War 2. As distinct from any other book on the Soviet Air Force in World War 2, which dwell largely on individual aircraft types, this book also takes a closer look at the Soviet Air Forces structure and aircraft fleet. Included are all of the unit insignia of Soviet air armies, divisions and regiments, as well as the varied artwork and camouflage schemes used on individual aircraft. This intriguing book features brief descriptions (including performance data) and many unseen photographs and colour side views of all the aircraft types that operated in the immediate pre-war years and in World War 2, including many British aircraft flown by the Soviet Air Force.The most important combat operations conducted by the Air Force and Soviet Naval Aviation are described and illustrated by tactical maps. The book also reveals information about the Soviet Air Force commanders and famous Soviet aces of the period; the aces aircraft and their personal insignia are illustrated.
