Is Andreas Rupprecht a reliable author?
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:04:31 pm »
I wanted to know if people think Andreas Rupprecht is considered a reputable author?  Its so hard to tell these days if someone does a good job researching or not without buying a persons book, and I wanted to know what the community thinks.

He was the 4th member to join this forum way back on 3rd Jan 2006 and is also a moderator of this forum - username "Deino" - who regularly posts on (primarily China related) matters. I've known him even longer than that from other forums. In my opinion, the best author on China writing today.

IMHO Andreas Rupprecht aka Deino is one the best author of Modern Chinese Aviation.
I just wish him, that he could get more time and money in his life, so he could to travel to China more frequently and obtain there more information and knowledge at first-hand.  :) B)

I greatly recommend his Dragons Wings book (effectively a Chinese secret projects book).
The likes of Combat Aircraft magazine clearly see him as a leading source on Chinese military aviation.

I'd say Andreas could esily get job in NASIC for example. He may not know everything or always make correct conclusions using just open sources - it's always hard in the case of Chinese aerospace developments - but he has a passion a few have, which gave him a certain respect from Chinese 'big shrimps' too, so buy with confidence.

In my opinion Andreas is absolutely 1st Class both in his research and in his writing. Three is no better expert in Chinese aviation history and its developments.

To all ... I'm simply speechless !

Thank you so much.
