Russia’s Warplanes is set to become the standard reference work on the subject. Written by an acknowledged expert in the field, this will serve as an exhaustive directory of the latest products of Russia’s military aviation industry. As well as outlining aircraft that currently equip the various Russian air arms, the first of two volumes also takes into account aircraft developed for and fielded by foreign states in the post-Soviet era. Piotr Butowski provides authoritative technical descriptions for each military aircraft – and every significant sub-variant – currently available from Russia’s aerospace industry, or otherwise in large-scale service. With the level of accuracy and insight familiar to Harpia’s regular readers, each aircraft profile also includes specifications, and details of operators, upgrades, avionics and weapons. The first of two volumes on the subject presents in-depth coverage of tactical combat aircraft, trainers, Army Aviation helicopters, reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft, airborne command posts and relay aircraft. As such, the breadth of this work extends from the latest multi-role fighters developed by Mikoyan and Sukhoi, via successive generations of combat rotorcraft, to airborne early warning and electronic intelligence-gatherers. As well as familiar types such as the Su-30MK family of fighters and Mi-24/35 assault helicopters that have proven so successful on the export market, Russia’s Warplanes extends its reach to the various new and upgraded types that are beginning to populate Russia’s rejuvenated air arms, including those still under development, including the enigmatic ‘fifth-generation’ Sukhoi T-50 fighter. Additional assets, including long-range bombers, maritime aircraft, strategic transport and tanker aircraft, theater and special purpose transports, and air-launched weapons will be dealt with in Volume 2. Supplemented by many photographs, some of which from exclusive sources, as well as specially created maps and diagrams, Volume 1 of Russia’s Warplanes launches the most comprehensive study of the fixed- and rotary wing aircraft types – manned and unmanned – that can currently be found in Russian service or which are being built or offered for export.

About the Author:

Piotr Butowski is an aviation journalist, writer and photographer specialising in the aviation of Russia, especially the themes of aerospace industry and technology. Since 1978 he has published several thousand articles in aviation magazines all over the world, mainly in Poland, the UK, France and Germany, but also in Brazil, the US, Japan, Spain, Italy, Russia and other countries. He is author of around 15 books on Russian aviation published in Poland, the US, the UK and Hong Kong between 1985 and 1996. After a break of almost 20 years, he wrote the first volume of the Russia's Warplanes series last autumn.

Review:

"Informative technical and development detail of so many aircraft, and equally well illustrated throughout with some high quality photos, including many from inside the cockpit as well.  Accompanied by helpful maps and diagrams this is a comprehensive look at the subject, and one that holds plenty of promise for the second volume when it comes." (Military Modeling)

"This reliable reference wonderfully recaps current Russian warplanes. I, for one, eagerly await its sequel. If your library affords space for just one reference on modern Russian military aircraft, make it this one. Roundly recommended!" (Cybermodeler)

"Piotr Butowski is a well known expert who has outstanding connections within the Russian aerospace industry... presents a complete overview of Russia's military aircraft inventory, encompassing tactical combat aircraft, attack and transport helicopters, reconnaissance, and surveillance aircraft and special mission aircraft. Divided into four chapters, the book details the history and status of current Russian Aircraft as well as the development of their prospective generations. Despite the fact Russia's currently declining economy will impact the sustainment of such ambitious military modernization efforts, with some of the described projects being canceled or delayed, the value of this book cannot be disputed. It is an excellent overview of all current and future likely types of Russian military aircraft including their features. The book is not only directed at military analysts and subject matter experts but is valuable for anyone interested in Russian Airplanes." (Journal of the Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC))
