Overview

Janes At the Controls  is a new series providing a 'hands-on' briefing of what it is like to fly and fight in modern combat aircraft. By following a hypothetical mission set sometime in the near future, the full capabilities of the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 will be revealed. With its APG-65 multimode radar and infra-red search and tracking sensor, the Hornet can operate by day or by night over the harshest environment of all: the ocean. It can carry a formidable ordinance load including Harpoon anti-ship missiles and SLAM, it's equivalent for land targets. In this scenario the Hornets will use lasar guided bombs for pinpoint precision against enemy missile craft lurking among neutral shipping.

Author Biography: David C. Isby is a Washington-based attorney and defense consultant. A special correspondent for Jane's Intelligence Review, he has contributed to many military and aviation publications and written extensively on the Russian armed forces. He lives in Washington D.C.

This is a pretty nice book about the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet. The book describes the missions of the Hornet, and doesn't really touch on stats and performance issues on the aircraft. It's got some good diagrams labeling parts, and how it describes a 'typical' mission is pretty sweet. If you like the Hornet you'll like this book.
