Product description

By the mid-1950s the export of Soviet arms expanded into the Middle East and were immediately sent to war. Forming the backbone of, amongst others, the air forces of Iraq and Syria, Soviet aircraft were involved in major conflicts such as the Suez Crisis, the Six-Day and Yom Kippur Wars, the Iran-Iraq War, the First and Second Gulf Wars and, more recently, the civil war in Syria. Mikoyan MiG-15 and MiG-29 fighters, Sukhoi Su-7 and Su-22 fighter-bombers, Su-24MK tactical bombers, Su-25 attack aircraft, Mil' Mi-8/Mi-17 and Mi-24/25/35 helicopters, Antonov An-12, and Il'yushin Il-76 transports all played their parts in the region's conflicts. Soviet and Russian Military Aircraft in the Middle East includes details of combat use and comprehensive fleet lists of all known Soviet/Russian military aircraft.
