Overview
-

This latest volume in Harpia's new-look format continues the publisher's aim of providing unrivalled detail and accuracy in its coverage of lesser-known areas of air warfare research.

Following Harpia Publishing's acclaimed two-volume series Russia's Warplanes, author and researcher Piotr Butowski sheds light on the full range of air-launched ordnance of Russian origin that can be found in large-scale service today.
This unique reference work provides a wealth of information - most of which has been gained from first-hand and internal industry sources - on the full spectrum of Russian aircraft-launched weapons.

Supported by newly commissioned artworks and extensive specification tables, chapters describe in detail air-to-air missiles, air-to-surface missiles, guided and free-fall bombs and cluster munitions, rockets, as well as aircraft guns. Also included are the range of strategic munitions currently fielded or in development for the Russian Air Force, including cruise missiles and nuclear bombs.

Addressing a previously neglected field within aerospace research and publishing, Russia's Air-launched Weapons will appeal to aircraft and weapons enthusiasts and conflict researchers alike.
