Nice! And I guess a big hat-tip is due to Chris Gibson for showing that folk will buy books on transport projects...

Great!

but why volume II, given that there have been already 3 volumes in the ASP series?

best,

Looks like yet another forthcoming addition to my bookshelf.

I'm totally losing track of Crecy's renumbering. I guess from this we can take it that Tony's ASP: 1 & 2 won't be revised like the earlier BSP series?

Maybe Crecy should have just lost the volume numbers and added meaningful subtitles instead?

In fairness, I think ASP Transports was under way before Atlas. I only found out about it when I was looking into the RAF's interest in the C-5.

I think I came up with a possible explanation for why it is number 2. The first and only volume published by Crecy is the one about WWII secret projects. If this is tru probably post-war bombers and fighters will be III and IV or higher if any volume is split in two.

1 and now 2 were Crecy releases. The previous ASP volumes were released by Ian Allan / Midland. The numbering is consistent. Rereleases of the old ASP volumes will be 3 and 4 most likely.

Hopefully the volumes on fighters and bombers will be expanded and split (after all there was enough material for a volume including project only up to the 50's in "Early US Jet Fighters: Proposals, Projects and Prototypes") and perhaps volumes about strategic recon, hypersonics and son will be released.
