Soviet Heavy Fighters 1926 – 1949 showcases some of the lesser known, often forgotten, aircraft types, as well as a group of young and prolific aircraft designers who never had a chance to flourish under difficult wartime conditions and limitations inherent to the Soviet aviation industry of the time.

Many of the aircraft designs discussed in the book never went into full-scale productions, others didn’t progress beyond the prototype stage and some were complete failures. Nonetheless, quite a few of them featured interesting and innovative design solutions. This comprehensive book will shed light on some of the lesser known episodes in the history of Soviet aviation and save them from falling into obscurity.


"...will be of great interest to modelers and aviation historians alike."

- AMPS Indianapolis

"You cannot tell a story of Soviet aircraft development without including all the political intrigue that often comes with a dictatorship like the Soviet Union, and that is part and parcel of this book. Add in great period photos, drawings, and full color profiles, and you have a book that is both interesting to read and a superb reference."
