The latest title in the highly acclaimed series covers concepts developed by the US aircraft industry in the years immediately prior to & during World War II
Embracing both fighter & bomber proposals from the American aircraft industry this new volume includes medium, heavy and intercontinental bombers, attack and anti-submarine aircraft, both for USAAF and US Navy. Some emphasis is placed on 'Circular Proposals' - a system of submitting designs against requirements circulated around the industry by the Army Air Force in the 1930s and early 1940s.
Incorporating information on the Hughes twin-engine studies which led to the spectacular XF-11, American Secret Projects also includes the Martin XB-33 four-engine heavy bomber developed at the same time as the Boeing B-29 and US Navy fighter studies from Boeing, Chance Vought and Curtiss powered by a Wasp Major engine.
Drawings & photographs of an un-built designs are combined with photographs of real aircraft to bring these American projects to life for the first time. A valuable addition to the bookshelf for modeller & historian alike
Over 300 photographs & illustrations
