The Post war Polish Air Force was equipped with aircraft of Soviet origin and this book covers a daylight high-speed bomber, a trainer derivative and a twin-engined utility aircraft providing a light transport aircraft and liaison aircraft.

As in other MMP publications, the images comprise more than 120 photographs and the excellent unique colour images produced by Karolina Holda.

The Tu-2 was a very successful high-speed daylight bomber. While not in the same class as the German Ju-88 or the British Mosquito, it was capable and versatile.

The Sukhoi UTB-2 derivative provided a very capable advanced trainer and the deletion of combat equipment reduced weight, allowing the use of less powerful engines making it an economic trainer.

The Shcherbakov Shche-2 then took the basic design concept to produce an urgently needed utility aircraft that could serve as a light transport and liaison aircraft.

The author and illustrator have produced a first rate presentation of the history of these related aircraft presenting them in Polish service.
