9781846032974: Vulcan Units of the Cold War (Combat Aircraft)

The best of the three RAF jet bombers in the early years of the Cold War (1946-1991), the Vulcan was designed as the Avro 698, and possessed fighter-like maneuverability at low level despite its size. First flown in August 1952, the Vulcan entered service in February 1957. Most were equipped to carry the Blue Steel stand-off missile, but in 1966 around 50 Vulcans were redeployed in a tactical low-level bombing role.

Three flew during the Falklands War, and the last Vulcans in service were used as aerial tankers until April 1984. This book examines the design of the Vulcan, looking at the improvements made to its engine and its evolving combat role. The illustrations include many in-flight photographs and detailed color profiles.

About the Author :

After graduating from Leeds University, Andrew Brookes completed RAF pilot training in 1968. Following recce and strike tours on Victors, Canberras and Vulcans (543, 85, 100, 35 and 101 Squadrons), he joined the tri-service policy and plans staff of Commander British Forces, Hong Kong. After serving on the HQ Strike Command Plans staff, and then in charge of the multi-engine, training and rotary wing desks in the Inspectorate of Flight Safety, he was appointed as the last operational RAF Commander at the Greenham Common cruise missile base. He spent a year studying International Relations as Fellow Commoner at Downing College, Cambridge, before becoming a Group Director at the RAF Advanced Staff College and then co-ordinator of air power studies at the Joint Services Command and Staff College.

He is now Aerospace Analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He publishes and broadcasts widely. He has written twelve aviation books, including 'Photo Reconnaissance', 'The V-Force', 'Air War over Italy', 'Air War over Russia' and a quartet of books, which draw out the flight safety lessons from high profile aircraft accidents. He received the Defence Aerospace Journalist of the Year Award in 2004 and 2006.

Andrew Brookes is a Liveryman of the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators, a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society and a Fellow of the Royal United Services Institute. He is Vice President of No.343 (Camberwell) ATC Squadron.

Review :

“As with all books in the Osprey Combat Aircraft series, there are several pages of color aircraft profiles, in this case by aviation artist Chris Davey. These highly detailed profiles chronicle the Vulcan from its early days sporting the glossy white anti-flash paint to the time when doctrinal changes dictated a switch to overall earthtone camouflage. Each color plate is accompanied by a comprehensive caption. The Avro Vulcan was fielded to fulfill a specific mission, was regularly adapted to the ever changing arena of the Cold War, and finally bowed out after decades of frontline service. Andrew Brookes does an excellent job covering the history of the operational employment of the Vulcan, both the machine itself and the men who flew it, all the while keeping the global context in mind. A first class addition to any Aviation Bookcase.” ―Logbook
