Hundreds of rare photographs from private collections and public archives, recollections of pilots who were participants of operations. All types of Soviet aircraft which were at service are described in detail in book.
Сombat operations in Afghanistan became the most large-scale air war the Soviet Air Force since the Second World War. In Afghanistan, all kinds of aircraft were involved - from helicopters and transport planes to fighters, fighter-bombers, reconnaissance and attack aircraft. Air support played a crucial role in virtually every operation of Soviet ground troops and Special Forces, and ammunition consumption was comparable with Great Patriotic War - more than 6 million bombs and about 6 million missiles.
This book is the first serious study of combat employment of the Soviet Air Force in Afghanistan, which generalizes the invaluable experience of the last war of the Soviet Union. Here you will find comprehensive information about all types of aircraft and helicopters, fought "beyond the river" as it was called, and professional analysis of the leading historian of aviation.
