This splendid new book reveals how imported American aircraft, engines and aviation equipment were used in pre-revolutionary Russia, the Soviet Union and today's Russia, influencing the development of aircraft industry, civil and military aviation over all these years. US aviation first 'set foot' on Russian soil in 1908 and since then many different aircraft have found their way there; between 1910 and 1916 the Russian Navy took delivery of Curtiss floatplanes and flying boats. Between the two World Wars, Boeing and Martin attempted to sell their aircraft to the Soviet Union, and many different variants were imported; several of the most successful were not only imported but also built under licence.During World War 2, Soviet airmen flew and fought in US aircraft supplied under the Lend-Lease agreement and these planes proved to be very popular with Soviet aircrew. After the Cold War cooperation was established between US and Russian aircraft manufacturers and research establishments (such as the effort by Sukhoi and Gulfstream to create supersonic business jets); deliveries of US aero engines for certain Russian aircraft have also taken place.

This unique book is illustrated with over 600 vibrant photographs, many of which have never been published, and several enviable line drawings and colour profiles which will be of real interest to aviation enthusiasts everywhere.

Very interesting 31. Oktober 2012
Von infolotnicze - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
US Aircraft in the Soviet Union and Russia is a book describing the history of US aviation in Russian.

The first aircraft made in the USA and found in Russia date to 1908. Since then the cooperation between those two countries had it ups and downs but the flow of technology and aircraft was quite big until the end of world war II. After that we had a stoppage because of the Cold War.

The book is divided into 6 chapters with the biggest one describing the situation during World Wa II when the world had to unite to fight with Nazi Germany. There we get to know the history of various airplanes transferred to Russian according to Lend-Lease act. Few of them became very famous - not quite loved in US aircraft like P-39 found their way in Russia and became a deadly weapon in the hands of Soviet Aces.

The chapter describing the situation after WWII shows us Tu-4 which was a copy of B-29 and other aircraft which wrecks were examined by Russian specialists to obtain new technologies used in the West.

As usually with Midland books we have lots of great quality pictures (600 of them which is quite impressive) and color drawing. Additionally there are scans of documents made in Russia.

The book is packed with tons of data so it is a must have for all aviation fans interested in connections between USA and Russia on the field of aviation.
Superb Look at American Aircraft Used by Soviet Union and Russia 12. Dezember 2013

"US Aircraft in the Soviet Union and Russia" by Yefim Gordon, Sergey Komissarov, and Dmitri Komissarov offers a superb look at American aircraft imported and used by the Soviet Union and Russia. The chapters of the book are: (1) Introduction, (2) The Period up to 1920, (3) The 'Twenties and 'Thirties, (4) The War Years, (5) Aircraft in a Cold War Climate, and (6) The Period after 1991. As one might expect, the bulk of the book focuses on the aircraft provided through Lend Lease during the World War II years, as well as commercial aviation provided during the period after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is loaded with photographs, has some three-view line drawings, as well as color plates. The book even has sections on American piston aero engines delivered during the 1920s and 1930s, and jet engines delivered after 1991, which is very interesting for a book of this nature. Overall, this book is a "must have" for those interested in civil and military aviation of the Soviet Union and Russia.
