Product description

Category Books on aviation, Subcategory Rest of Europe, ISBN/Box 9781906959197, Publisher/Brand SAM Publications, Author Dave Brown, Format a4, No. Pages 128, Version Soft cover, Language English

Possibly one of the most significant aircraft of WW2, but it is virtually forgotten. The reason is that during the war it fought the Russians (as well as the Americans and then later the Germans) – when the war ended and Romania was under the Russian sphere of influence, the pilots, engineers, mechanics that worked on this aircraft were hunted down and many of them ended up in the Russian Gulags. As a result, Romanians were afraid to talk about it. As Romania was stuck behind the Iron Curtain, the western researchers had no access to info.

This combination of factors led to the aircraft nearly being forgotten. Performance-wise, it was in the same class as a Bf 109E or Hurricane, with enough punch and oompf, and could face-off P38s, even Mustangs, and was extremely lethal against the B24 Liberators that came to Ploiesti. It also scored plenty of kills against the Russians. There is a long list of aces who gained this title while flying the IAR.80.
