Osprey Publishing Item #: OSPAVG1 -

    About this Osprey Publishing BookWhile the introduction of the Merlin engine did improve the Mustang's performance and produce the bubble-canopied fighters with which we associate the name, credit must be given to the Allison-engined variants that preceded it. From its inception in early 1940, the Mustang's development was extraordinarily rapid - such was the need for a fighter at the time, and the confidence in its design. By early January 1942, the Mustang was in service with the RAF, flying...

      Osprey Publishing Item #: OSPAVG8 -

        About this Osprey Publishing BookThe initial version of the Curtiss P-40, designated by the manufacturer as the Hawk H-81, combined the established airframe of the earlier radial-powered H-75 (P-36) fighter with the Allison V-1710 liquid-cooled engine. The year was 1939, and the marriage was one of expediency. With the threat of war in Europe growing by the day, the US Army Air Corps brass wanted a modern fighter that would combine the sterling handling qualities of the P-36 with a boost in...

          Osprey Publishing Item #: OSPAVG12 -

            About this Osprey Publishing BookDuring the early years of the Cold War, the most effective way to gather strategic intelligence about the Soviet Union and its allies was manned overflight.

Given the highly sensitive nature of such flights, the President insisted that every effort should be made to reduce to zero the...
