Midland Publishing | 1996 | ISBN: 1857800125 | English | 298 Pages | PDF | 126 MB

Following the success of the acclaimed OKB MIG, Midland Publishing and its Aerofax imprint are pleased to present OKB Sukhoi. Like its predecessor, this is a definitive history of one of the world's most famous aircraft design bureaux.

Sukhoi, its founder Pavel O.Sukhoi, and its many stellar engineers and crafstman are thoroughly documented in thisnew book. PRepared with the cooperation of the Moscow-based bureau, itis the result of unprecedented access to rarely seen records and vintage photographic archives. In addition, the authors have accessed other Russian sources long hidden from public viewing or western scutinity. The result is a massive amount of fresh and previously unpublished information in what certainly will become the standard reference for all time on this important Russian aircraft producer.

Each individual Sukhoi aircraft type is reviewed in exceptional detail. Included are prototypes, testbeds, miscellaneous uncompleted projects and design studies, and a plethora of production types. Nearly a thousand three view drawings and photographs depict every aircraft known to have been developed under the auspices of the Sukhoi name.
