This second, expanded and fully revised edition of the groundbreaking book African MiGs examines the role and deployment history of MiG- and Sukhoi-designed fighters – as well as their Chinese derivatives – in no fewer than 23 air forces in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This first volume, covering 12 air arms from Angola to Ivory Coast, will be followed by a second volume in 2011. In order to ensure precise documentation of every airframe delivered to and operated by the various air forces, special attention is given to illustrations as well as extensive tables of known serial numbers and attrition.
The new volume is updated with much exclusive information, photographs and artworks. As such, it provides the most comprehensive and reliable source on the background of each of the features air forces, their organization and unit designations, deliveries of fighters built by MiG, Sukhoi, Chengdu and Shenyang, camouflage, markings and combat deployment.
...superbly researched as best as can be and the authors are completely neutral in terms of the political situation revolving around their use. The narrative sticks to the facts (as well as they are known) and it does not hesitate to admit it when the facts are fuzzy or contradictory. It is this approach that makes the books so appealing...any aviation enthusiast will find interesting and entertaining. It is a great resource and book that I most highly recommend. I'm looking forward to volume 2 coming back into print.
