{detailed description}Since 1922, the name of Tupolev has been synonymous with the most spectacular achievements of Russian military and civil aviation. In that time, the Tupolev design bureau produced among the world's largest and most powerful aircraft, including the giant ANT-20 Maksim Gorkii of 1934, the Tu-95 'Bear', symbol of Soviet air power in the Cold War era, and the 'Tu-144 'Charger', the first supersonic passenger aircraft to fly. Despite the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tupolev has continued its work on civil aircraft, maintaining their reputation for technical innovation.
In Tupolev Aircraft since 1922, Bill Gunston has used his unparalleled access to the records of the Tupolev design bureau to provide full and authoritative specifications and to trace the design histories for all Tupolev aircraft, information hitherto unavailable in the West, detailing the aircraft that formed the backbone of former Soviet military and civil aviation.
The book is illustrated with over three hundred photographs and line drawings, including numerous original drawings from the Tupolev archives never published before.
Cover illustration: An original painting by Wilfred Hardy, G.Av.A., depicting a Tupolev Tu-142 'Bear-F' over a US Navy task force with its customary escorting Grumman F-14 Tomcat.
