Amazon UK finally revised the revised delivery date to match Crecy, when the last date in February slipped again, Amazon put it to the End of march but a check on the Crecy site listed the 28th of April, so hopefully it will finally be out in a months time.

Is there also going to be an update of BSP 1935 to 50? Hopefully a multi volume expansion. :)

I'm pretty sure they will be republished in the new format and style as the rest of the series, but i'm not sure how much additional and new information there will be as Tony has also done British Experimental Combat Aircraft of WWII for Crecy as well covering some of the more important projects.

People have probably already seen this, but Crecy have posted a preview of the revised British Secret Projects 2: Jet Bombers Since 1949 by Tony Buttler on their website http://www.crecy.co.uk/british-secret-projects-2. Due out on September 29 this year.

Nice one, I know Tony has mentioned there is not as much updated data in this revised volume than the Fighters volume but still looking forward to it, be interesting to see if they actually publish for the end of September as the Fighter volume has had a couple of slippages so far.

Here is a forthcoming book about French battleships of WW I by John Jordan (if it is like the  first volume it must be a superb book)

I wish he would update and reissue his own books on the Soviet Navy and Soviet Submarines, taking into account new data or the Cold War programmes but also the new ships and subs of the Russian Navy

Replying to the last post in this topic the book about nanoweapons mentions 5 pounds nukes....but how would they overcome the critical mass issue? I suspect it might be a sicence fiction book.

Unfortunately, the captions for many of the the recently uploaded batch of photos are somewhat screwed up.  For example, there's a sweet pic of an Atlas BGRV lifting off, but it's captioned as a "test rig", a space station concept is captioned as a solar-powered vehicle, and so on.

This design doesn't ring any bells with me, it may even be a nominal representation of an "Aerospace Plane" concept,

It's one of the Convair designs for the aptly-named "Aerospace Plane" program, a USAF program to develop an airbreathing reusable launch system.
