‹ Return to Special Tornado rolled out
October 2019The October issue of Combat Aircraft features a <b>FREE US STRATEGIC BOMBERS SUPPLEMENT</b>, including a tribute to the B-2 at 30 years since its maiden flight. The issue also looks at the current state of the B-1B Lancer fleet and looks back at how the B-52H turned its hand to a new mission in the skies above Afghanistan in 2001, assisting troops on the ground. Plus, surely one of the most impressive aircraft ever designed and built, Lindsay Peacock explains how the Convair B-58 Hustler broke new ground when it came to performance but it failed to live up to expectation with a short service career. The issue also details how US Air Force chief of staff Gen Dave Goldfein gave more details of the current status of the Light Attack Experiment and how he made it clear when speaking to Combat Aircraft editor Jamie Hunter this summer that the F-35 remains untouchable, even though new F-15s are being purchased. We look at how the US Air Force has been testing a new approach to rapid basing and deployability under the Combat Support Wing concept, Eurofighters flying alongside Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceRs policing the skies adjacent to the Black Sea, how the AH-1F Cobra played an important role in the ground war against Iraq in Operation ‘Desert Storm’, Romania’s F-16 Fighting Falcons and how the Australian Defence Force is aiming for high-end capabilities by engaging in an increasing range of demanding exercises, with the latest ‘Talisman Sabre’ underscoring this progress.
