Red Stars Over Afghanistan - Helicopter Helicopters 1979-1989 is the first part of the upcoming trilogy. The work is the result of a long and laborious effort with which the author collected personal documentary memories of military combat pilots deployed during various periods of war in Afghanistan between 1979 and 1989. Combat operations, especially the Soviet 40th Army, did not disappear without loss. The reader may be surprised that in nine years of fighting, the losses were quite high. Many pilots have died worthy ... The motto of the book is also compelling: "The fallen pilots of the helicopters will go straight to paradise because they have been in hell."
The author submits to the reader not only a study on the deployment of helicopters within the Soviet Army Air Force, but also, for example, the structure of the 40th Army Air Force helicopter units, the Mi-24 Battalion helicopter Mi-8, Mi-6 and Mi-26 multipurpose helicopters, Honored for fighting in Afghanistan by the Golden Star hero of the USSR, and also provides an overview of the devastation and damage to Soviet helicopters or the loss of flying personnel. In addition to many authentic photographs, the book offers color helical drawings and other illustrations. The publication contains 176 pages and includes a 3-sided flyer with a detailed, over 50 cm long Mi-24P helicopter drawing.
PLEASE NOTE: Text unfortunately only in Czech but the 100's of colour pictures make up for it
