SOVIET SECERET PROJECTS BOMBERS SINCE 1945
 from Tony Buttler and Yefim Gordon
The aviation industry of the former Soviet Union produced many outstanding military aircraft. However, there were many other proposed projects that never saw the light of day and almost all of them were completely unknown in the West. The end of the Cold War gives the opportunity for researchers in Russia to uncover these projects for the first time.
This volume, the first in a planned series of three, details many of the jet bomber projects drawn between the late 1940s and the present day and shows just how creative the design bureaus could be. A large proportion come from Tupolev, but there were others from Myasishchev, Sukhoi, and Yakovlev. Access to original archives from the bureaux has ensured a level of in-depth coverage and accuracy never previously possible.
Soviet Secret Projects also describes the competitions between these projects for orders and shows the progress made in aircraft design behind the Iron Curtain. It will give both experts and enthusiasts the chance to compare this work to Western aircraft programmes. Many of the drawings and illustrations have never previously been published and there are some specially commissioned renditions of ‘might-have-been’ types.
