This book represents probably the most detailed study published in the English language of the camouflage and markings of the fighter aircraft of the Soviet Air Force during the Second World War.

Erik Pilawskii is a scholar of the Soviet Air Force in World War Two and has undertaken several years of research to produce this ground-breaking book.

With information drawn from previously inaccessible Soviet archives, the author firstly presents a detailed analysis of the developments, trends, patterns and irregularities of the colour systems seen on Russian fighters and offers a fascinating insight into the workings of the Soviet manufacturing system responsible for this task.

There then follows a technical study of each of the main fighter aircraft and variants including the Lavochkin LaGG-3, the Lavochkin La-5, -5FN and 7, the Mikoyan and Guryevich I-200, MiG-1 and 3, the Polikarpov I-15, I-152, I-153, the Polikarpov I-16, the Yakovlev Yak-1, Yakovlev Yak-7, UTI-26, Yakovlev Yak-9 and Yakovlev Yak-3 as well as notable prototypes and developmental aircraft. Variants, weapons and equipment are all detailed

Each technical description is followed by a detailed description of camouflage and markings, factory-applied, field variations and seasonal.

The text is supported by hundreds of rare and previously unpublished photographs and more than 40 commissioned full colour artwork subjects. Furthermore, hundreds of colour schematic illustrations portray the immense variety of patterns related to this fascinating subject.

This book will be of essential use to all students of Soviet air power and modellers of Russian aircraft.
