Developed from the most successful and numerous of Russian World War Two fighters, the Yak-9 was an all-metal fighter used by the Soviet Union and its satellite states (Bulgaria, Poland, Yugoslavia) during and after World War Two, including action in the Korean War. The series of Yakovlev fighters' career (which began during the battle of Stalingrad) involved constant updating, mostly on the armaments side. The 9U and 9P variants were the most advanced. This work features: scale plans; photos and drawings from technical manuals; superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings; walk-around colour photographs of surviving aircraft; rare b+w archive photographs from World War Two; and rarely documented aspect of World War Two aviation history. It is an essential reading for aviation enthusiasts and scale aero-modellers.
