Special Order


The F-15A/C is irrefutably the most successful jet fighter of the last 30 years. Serving in the Air Forces of Israel, the United States and Saudi Arabia, it has racked up a kill ratio exceeding 105:0. Despite its age, it remains the leading operational air superiority and intercept platform in service today. The hi-tech wizardry of modern air combat detailed in this book makes for fascinating reading, even to those not immediately familiar with modern airpower, and a huge pool of previously unpublished information on both aircrafts' combat records is uncovered.

About the Author

Steve Davies is the author of two F-15 books published by Airlife. He is 'Air Forces Monthly' magazine's UK correspondent, a contributor to several other worldwide aviation publications ('International Air Power Review', 'Combat Aircraft', 'Aircraft Illustrated', 'Air International' etc) and is widely recognised as a leading authority on the F-15. He has excellent contacts in the fighter community and is well placed to extract stories and anecdotes that might otherwise remain untold. This is his first book for Osprey.
