A photo of two F-16s flying over some very snowy mountains with the pilots fully visible in their cockpits, kicks off the action. Five sentences describe how these aircraft have just engaged in warfare, flying at 1500 mph, firing weapons, hitting the enemy and disengaging to fight another day.
What weapons do F-16s carry on board? Meet the bombers and the fighters of countries around the world. What's the difference between the TU-160 and the B 52? How do the fighters and the bombers compare with each other?
Photos, graphs, a glossary and resources that offer more back matter round out this series written to inform our older readers who are mastering the text.
