Modern Air-Launched Weapons
From the unguided Mk 82 bomb used by U.S. forces to the Russian-Indian Brahmos supersonic cruise missile, Modern Air-Launched Weapons is a detailed guide to the complex world of aircraft munitions. It shows how combinations of various weapons and pods are loaded onto major aircraft types such as the F-15, B-1B, Su-30 and EF2000 Typhoon, and how these combinations work together in the heat of battle.
Arranged by type of aircraft, the book's annotations, numbered diagrams, top and side view artworks and photographs help to explain the terminology and systems employed in modern warfare, providing an excellent overview of modern offensive and defensive weapons systems.
Featuring specially commissioned computer-generated colour illustrations and an extensive directory of weapons, Modern Air-Launched Weapons is an expertly written, essential reference work read for anyone interested in modern military aviation.
