The Great Book Of Modern Warplanes e-book

by Bill Gunston


Another problem is the book's coverage of foreign war planes. These sections of the book seem to suffer from the same problems as the sections on American stealth, along with having poor photographs of Soviet era and Russian aircraft

Another problem is the book's coverage of foreign war planes. These sections of the book seem to suffer from the same problems as the sections on American stealth, along with having poor photographs of Soviet era and Russian aircraft. Overall, the book is an OK refference for Gulf War era American warplanes, but badly needs updating on its other topics. 2 people found this helpful.

Feb 25, 2016 Robert Hepple rated it really liked it. The Great Book of Modern Warplanes is a 1987 publication which takes a detailed look at a small number of key warplanes in service at the time of print. There are several contibutors including Bill Sweetman, Michael J Gething, Doug Richardson, Mike Spick and Bill Gunston – all have great aviation journalist credentials, and each has his own little quirks. Each chapter is, therefore, nearly 65 pages long on average allowing an in depth coverage of each type.

I got this book for my birhtday. and i was amazed that there was so much info. While some better coverage of foreign warplanes would be nice, I am personally most enthralled by American warplanes, so it's fine. The book covers todays combat aircraft it hase a contents of most modern fighting planes. You get info of aveonics powerplant's and armerment history and devopment info for all planes. it shows how alot of old planes from the 1970s are upgraded into modern. Great combat jet reference.

This book is awesome. I had it when I was a teenager and I remember loving it. I recently bought it again to have it in my library. It is a big book and heavy but it still is worth every penny. Loaded with pictures, diagrams and cutaway drawings of the featured aircraft. Lots of information on history, development, flight testing etc. The following are the contents of the book:

Introduction
Chapter 1 A10 Thunderbolt
Chapter 2 F-15 Eagle
Chapter 3 F-16 Fighting Falcon
Chapter 4 F/A18 Hornet
Chapter 5 F-111
Chapter 6 Harrier
Chapter 7 Migs
Chapter 8 B-1B
Chapter 9 F-4 Phantom
Chapter 10 F-14 Tomcat

Within each chapter there are the following sections:

Development
Structure
Powerplant
Avionics
Armament
Combat and Deployment
Performance and Handling
Experimental Variants
Specifications and Glossary

At 648 pages, it is a huge book with a great wealth of information on the above aircraft. If you like any of these aircraft, I highly recommend getting this book. You won't be disappointed.

This is a great book. Both my son and myself are enjoying reading it. My son really like the overview picture of F16 on Page 183, and most time, he would go to this page directly before starting to read more.

This is an outstanding book, packed with an enormous wealth of information for aviation buffs. The following aircraft are described in detail:
A-10
B-1
F-4
F-14
F-15
F-16
F/A-18
F-111
Harrier
MiG-21
MiG-23
MiG-25
MiG-29

In each case, a chapter is devoted to each of the following:
Development
Structure
Powerplant
Weapons and Avionics
Deployment
Performance

Each chapter on every aircraft includes many high-quality and large color photographs., black and white three-view line drawings, large and very detailed black and white, annotated cutaway drawings, colorful illustrations of many specific aircraft, diagrams of air combat maneuvers, construction and wiring diagrams, comprehensive ordinance diagrams, and detailed dimensional and performance specifications. In all cases, not only are the aircraft and their weapons described thoroughly, but the background and rationale for the designers' choices are also explained. In addition, air combat incidents and the comments of pilots and other analysts are also included.

The physical quality of the book is also very high. Paper and binding quality are excellent. The writing is lucid and easy to follow, without the frequent content and grammatical errors found in so many other books of this type. The material is well laid out and follows a consistent format. The photographs and illustrations all have excellent color registration and the print is neither too large or too small.

Finally, I particularly appreciated the thorough explanation of how Soviet military philosophies influenced the development of Soviet aircraft. Instead of merely describing the technical differences, the authors also give an excellent overview of Soviet policies and processes which had such a strong influence on their choice of technologies and architectures. I was particularly glad to see the authors avoided the common misconception that the dumb Soviets just copied Western technology and architecture 10 to 15 years after the superior American technical community invented it. The truth is far more complex and interesting.

Overall, I cannot more highly recommend this extremely well-conceived book. My thanks to the authors and editors for creating it. I have enjoyed it tremendously. It is a quantum leap ahead of every other book of this type I have ever reviewed.

The development and deployment of each aircraft is described in the most detail of any of the many military aviation books I have ever come across. The structure, propulsion, avionics, weapons

I recently borowed this book from a friend and i am going to have trouble giving it back. this is a great book it combines sharp color photos with in depth information on the design, development, avionics armarment etc. These photos include rare test pictures and live fire tests. I reccomend it to anyone intersted in jet aircraft.
