Product description

The biggest figures of both Soviet and Russian aviation belong without a doubt Nikolai Nikolaevich Polikarpov. He rightly took the position of the uncorrupted Soviet "King of Fighters". During the turbulent thirties of the last century, his name became practically synonymous with the fighter aircraft of the VVS RKKA (Military Air Force of the Workers Peasant Red Army). His life and creative journey unfolded under the conditions of the Soviet totalitarian state, dominated by the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) and above all by Josif Vissarionovich Stalin, one of the darkest figures of the history of the last century.
As a man at the height of the power, Polikarpov had a fall down to the bottom. After successful career advancement, during his hunt on the enemy regime at the end of the 1920s, the state-run train was almost full. The designer arrested the State Police OGPU on 24 October 1929 (United State Political Administration, which was replaced in 1934 by a more famous NKVD). Without a process, by mere official decision, he was sentenced to the death penalty for alleged sabotage by shooting. Unlike the mass of similarly disabled innocent citizens of the first state of workers and peasants in the world, however, he was lucky. He saved his mind and the ability of an air engineer, too valuable commodities in Stalin's rapidly industrialized Soviet Union.
The reputed designer then created his most famous children, the biplane fighter I-15 and its derivatives after the I-153, and above all the single-lane I-16 for the Soviet Air Force. For some time he stood in the height of Stalin's favor. By the turn of the 1930s, however, the new descent had come. He was eliminated from the game by the emerging generation of young and very predatory aviation engineers, especially in the acquisition of Stalin's supremely unbeatable Alexander Sergeyevich Jakovlev. The book describes the development and combat deployment of its fighter aircraft. Hard binding, 297 x 230mm format, 180 pages, hundreds of photos, many colour profiles.
