All the text in English. Excellent quality thick edition, format A4, hardcover. 336pp. Hundreds of color photos, illustrations, schemes, drafts, ref. tables. 6 large folded double-side insets at A3 format with cutaways and colour threview drawings. The book is dedicated to the histoy of developing one of the best fourth-generation fighters - the Su-27 - and is, actually, the illustrated chronicle of the fighter's development, testing, productionising and further refining its design. Special attention has been paid to the evolution of the Su-27 family resulting in the emergence of such derivatives as the Su-33 carrier-borne fighter, Su-30 and Su-35/37 multirole aircraft, Su-34/Su-32 frontline bomber.
However, it is not only aircraft that the book is all about. The book is also focused on the designers and test pilots, manufacturers and military pilots. For the first time the English-speaking reader has a chance to see a detailed description of the aircraft and its equipment, weaponry and performance, as well as to learn a lot about Su-27's operation with both the Russian Air Force and abroad.
