This product belongs to the following categories:
This title from MBI looks at the development of the La-5 from the LaGG-3 M-82 prototype, through the La-5 and La-5F to the ultimate, (pre La-7), La-5FN version of the aircraft and at the training and experimental versions accruing from it. The profile also covers operational service with the Soviet Air Forces and its use by their Czechoslovak allies, especially during the Slovak National Uprising of 1944. Post-war use by the newly re-constituted Czechoslovak Air Force is also covered.
The book includes a discussion on the controversial subject of Soviet Wartime camouflage and markings as applied to the La-5 and also looks at the colour schemes used post-war by the Czechoslovaks. A technical analysis of the aircraft rounds of this profile.
This expanded 109 page book is packed full of photos, detail and line drawings of the aircraft. 4 pages of 1/72 scale drawings and scrap 1/48 views, 12 pages of colour artwork, including the return of MBI’s famous cockpit colour artwork being a highlight of this title.
The book has bi-lingual text in Czech and English, is softback and is printed on good quality art paper with glossy laminated covers.
