Attack aircraft have always played a vital role in supporting the troups on the ground and neutralizing ground-to-air threats. Modern Battlefield Warplanes profiles six aircraft/helicopters currently in service designed to fight over the battlefield -- America's A-10 Thunderbolt II, AH-64 Apache and AH-1 Cobra; the British/American AV-8B Harrier; and Russia's Ka-50 'Hokum', Mil-24 'Hind' and Su-25 'Frogfoot'. Packed with in-depth information and superbly illustrated throughout, this volume is the most complete work of its kind and an important battlefield warfare reference. Includes full development histories, mission data, descriptions of each type's avionics and weapon loads, current and past operators, and detailed specifications.
