The book gives a thorough presentation of the MiG bureau, its history and more important, its planes.
From the MiG-1 of WW II age to the latest MiG, the "31" Foxhound, all planes are presented in detail, with A LOT of data! For example, you can find, FOR EACH plane version even, the initial and sustained turn rate, engine rating/type, armament, etc. Also, the countries who use/used them are also cited.
Each plane is presented in detail, from it's prototype stage to full operational status, with A LOT OF PHOTOS! In fact, the last part of the book is a HUGE photo album. In a good move, the airplanes engines are also presented, with pictures and data, and same for the armament and missiles.
THE BEST book, hands down, about the MiGs, you can get. One huge difference from all the others "russian" books I own and red...the writing style and the english is nice and easy to read and understand, maybe having an english native as second author helped.
I recomend this book with both hands! If you want to know more about the MiG history, about ALL MiG planes, this is the book to own.
I can not give it though five stars...towards the end, with the apparition of MiG-29 and -31, the information is somehow sketchy (but still the most complete one you can find outside military reports), maybe due to censorship and military secret. Also, the engine/guns/missiles chapter could have been a little more comprehensive, but maybe now I am geting picky.
Buy it and you will not regret it!
