{detailed description}This fourth volume in F. G. Swanborough's widely-acclaimed survey of the world's aircraft is devoted to transports, trainers and reconnaissance aircraft currently in use by air forces throughout the world, or under active development.
Political and economic changes in recent years, and the receding threat of all-out nuclear war, have given a new importance to military transport aircraft. A nation's ability to fly men and supplies to any point on the globe-whether to reinforce political argument, to give economic or emergency aid or to support ' bush-fire ' operations-is now of great significance. The aircraft which give this ability to the world's major powers may be as effective in shaping history in the sixties as were the deterrent forces of strategic bombers in the fifties.
All the world's major transport aircraft -in service, production or development-are described in this volume: seventeen nations are represented by 79 different types of aircraft, ranging in size from large strategic freighters, such as the Short Belfast and Lockheed Starlifter, to trainers such as the Hawker Siddeley Gnat and the Cessna.
Like other titles in the series, Military Transports and Training Aircraft of the World provides an authoritative account of the origin and development of each aircraft type, with details of each variant and a summary of dimensions, weights and performance. The illustrations, of which there are over 320, have been chosen to show the characteristics of each aircraft and its variants.
