The book describes the entire evolution of Russian and Soviet ground attack planes, from the early years of the Russian Imperial Air Service to the '90s.

Looks great, but is there any chance it will appear in an English-language edition?

Complimenti!
Do you know how people living outside of Italy may order the book?
All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

For instance Abebooks (from Webster.it / Limena, PD, Italien) offers the book. Use the ISBN 9788875654221 to fill the Search Option.

Thanks everyone for the info. Seems an interesting book to order. Could you please post your impressions once received. I already have a pretty collection on Soviet and Russian unbuilt projects and I'd like to avoid duplicity.

It is a choice of the publisher. If there are many requests, it will be more likely that the text will be translated.

Very few, I suppose. Against that is the language, but the drawings are exclusive and very well made.

Visvirtusvoluntas, are you co-author (Alberto Trevisan)? Is it too abbusing asking you for the index of this great book? I am especially interested in the late 30`s, early 40`s designs.

I've some issue to post the index right now. I can assure you that various Polikarpov, Tupolev, Grigorovich, Kocherigin, Neman projects are covered and the fascinating "competition Ivanov" as well.

New book on Soviet strike aircraft
« Reply #18 on: February 08, 2019, 07:46:02 am »
Dear friends,
I want to tell you a book just released (unfortunately only in Italian but who knows that in the future not even an English edition)  by Alberto Trevisan and Anatoly P. Borovik headlined “Assaltatori ed aerei da attacco al suolo russi e sovietici” on the Soviet and Russian strike and ground attack aircraft since 1916 to present days .
268 pages densely packed with about 300 black and white and colour photos and line drawings, colour silhouettes, family trees etc!
Absolutely recommendable.
The book is published by IBN Editore that you can find through Google (or going to: https://www.ibneditore.it/ sometime a bit slow in appearing), the email is info@ibneditore.it

Hi all!
Did MDB attack aircraft M-921 "Hornet" include in that book? Chief designer was E. G. Koshelev, 2000
