Complete history of American naval attack aircraft * Includes development of A4D Skyhawk, A3J Vigilante and A6 Intruder * From Gravity Bombs to ‘Smart Weapons’ * Many stunning photographs * Will appeal to both aviation and naval historians.
Strike from the Sea: Navy Attack Aircraft from Skyraider to Super Hornet 1948-Present celebrates carrier-based air-to-ground attack aircraft which first came into operation during the Korean War, reached maturity during Vietnam, and are deployed today throughout the world. Well-known author and naval aviation authority Tommy Thomason not only explores such legendary Navy aircraft as the A4D Skyhawk, A3J Vigilante, and A-6 Intruder, but also the critical role of the aircraft carrier itself, for without these massive nuclearpowered floating airfields, Navy attack aircraft would have no sea-borne bases from which to operate. Armament from gravity bombs to today's GPS-guided “smart weapons” are covered in great detail and this book also explains that while many different types of airplanes were required for flying attack missions in the past, only one aircraft - the advanced F/A-18E/F Super Hornet - is needed to carry out these same missions in an even more complex and hostile combat environment today.
Once again, we can count on Specialty Press to offer us the best book on a subject and this time it is on US Navy Strike aircraft. It is a book that I can easily recommend to you and I know that once you start to read it, you will agree.
Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, August 2009
Detail is the theme and like the other titles frm this publisher it is presented in a seamless and readable format well supported by over 370 excellent photographs. I highly recommend this title.
