[E-book] Curtis Peebles - DARK EAGLES. A History of Top Secret US, Aircraft Programs

Curtis Peebles, «DARK EAGLES. A History of Top Secret US, Aircraft Programs (Revised Edition)»
PDF | 3,5 Mb | 378 pages | Publisher: Presidio Press | year: 1999 | Language: English | Country: United States| ISBN 089141696X


Peebles admirably assembles, from a multitude of sources, a compact complete history of U.S. programs to develop so-called black or secret aircraft. Those began with work on the first American jet, the Bell P-59, during World War II, and proceeded to include the construction of such eventual headline-makers as the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, and the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter, which distinguished itself in the Gulf War. Also covered are such lesser-known vehicles as several families of reconnaissance drones, some fast and high, some low and slow. Besides the hardware, Peebles covers the logistics, administration, and politics of keeping multibillion-dollar programs under wraps until they succeed or fail. Occasionally, such secrecy has led to fantasizing aircraft that do not exist–the demonstrably legendary Mach 5 Aurora, for example, which was a favorite of flying saucer cultists. Overall, one of the year's best additions to aviation collections.

Ron Wallace Clarke - British Aircraft Armament Volume 1: RAF Gun Turrets from 1914 to the Present Day

This is a comprehensive survey covering every turret used by the British air services - from the very earliest attempts to provide air gunners with powered assistance for their weapons, via the development and mass production of wartime turrets, through to today's Lucas helicopter turret. Including American turrets fitted to US aircraft used by the RAF, this well illustrated volume is destined to become the essential 'benchmark' reference work.

Designed in the 1950s, the US Marines' M50 Ontos and the US Army's M56 Scorpion were both intended to be fast, light, air-droppable tank-killers for the Cold War battlefield - an answer to the cumbersome and ineffective World War II-vintage tanks that had taken to the battlefield during the Korean War.
