From Vietnam to Afghanistan. Harrowing tales of the F-14 in combat…as told by the pilots who flew her.
For more than three decades, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was the US Navy’s premier carrier-based, multi-role fighter jet. From its harrowing combat missions over Libya to its appearance on the silver screen in movies like Top Gun and Executive Decision, the F-14 has become an icon of American air power.
Now, for the first time in a single volume, Tomcat Fury explores the illustrious combat history of the F-14: from the Gulf of Sidra…to the Iran-Iraq War…to the skies over Afghanistan in the Global War on Terror.
Wings of Fire: A Combat History of the F-15.
From Israel to Afghanistan. Harrowing tales of the F-15 in combat…as told by the pilots who flew her.
For more than forty years, the McDonnel Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle has been the US Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet. Made popular by its ubiquity during the Persian Gulf War, the F-15 has become one of the most recognized and revered fighter jets of the modern era.
Throughout its illustrious history, the F-15 Eagle has earned more than 100 air-to-air victories…with zero losses. Wings of Fire is the definitive combat history of the F-15 Eagle and Strike Eagle…from the skies over Israel…to the frontlines in Afghanistan.
Foxbat Tales: The MiG-25 in Combat.
From the Middle East to the Iron Curtain…the definitive combat history of the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25.
July 1967: At the Moscow Air Show, the Soviets unveiled six new state-of-the-art aircraft. From among this lineup of new fighters and interceptors stood the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25—purportedly capable of outrunning and outmaneuvering any aircraft in NATO’s inventory.
The reality, however, was that this “interceptor” was a poorly-designed airframe with an over-sized motor. Although it excelled as a reconnaissance aircraft, it fared poorly as a dogfighter – and it was typically the loser when pitted against Western aircraft like the F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle.
From the Sinai Peninsula…to the Soviet-Afghan War…to Operation Desert Storm, Foxbat Tales is the definitive operational and combat history of the MiG-25.
