Soviet Cold War Weaponry : Aircraft, Warships and Missiles
by Anthony Tucker-Jones




Overview -
In this companion volume to his photographic history of Soviet tanks and armored vehicles, Anthony Tucker-Jones provides a visual guide to the vast array of aircraft, warships and missiles the Soviet armed forces deployed at the height of the Cold War. Although the superpowers never came to blows, the so-called Cold War was far from cold, with numerous hot proxy wars being fought in Africa and the Middle East. All these conflicts employed Soviet weaponry which has been captured in action in the color and black-and-white photographs selected for this book. Between the 1950s and 1980s Soviet and Warsaw Pact countries churned out thousands of weapons ready for the Third World War. They also embarked on a technological arms race with NATO in an attempt to counter each new piece of equipment as it appeared. The MiG fighters, the Badger and Backfire bombers, the nuclear submarines have achieved almost iconic status, but, as Anthony Tucker-Jones s book shows, there was much more to the Soviet armory than these famous weapons. Much of it, despite its age, remains in service with armies, guerrilla forces and terrorist organizations around the world today."
