This book is the complete and definitive history of the famous Sukhoi Design Bureau, from its establishment in 1940 to the present day. Continuing the series of books exploring in detail the major Russian aviation companies, this is the most comprehensive study of Sukhoi ever undertaken with every type of aircraft ever developed by the Sukhoi OKB dealt with in detail, with descriptions of all known versions and a wealth of recently declassified data. For each major type there are line drawings illustrating the difference between the versions, representative colour side views and specification tables allowing the performance of different versions to be compared; production figures and information on Sukhoi aircraft operated abroad are also included. The book is illustrated with numerous hitherto unpublished photographs. This is an amazing piece of research and will be essential reading for all serious students of aviation history and the development of Sukhoi aircraft design.
