Modern Chinese Military Aircraft


by Ryan Cunningham
Illustrated with accurate artworks of military aircraft and their markings, Modern Chinese Military Aircraft is a detailed guide to all the aircraft types deployed by the People’s Republic of China from 1990 to the present.
Arranged chronologically by type, the book covers everything from the venerable Cold War–era Chengdu J-7, a third-generation fighter still in service, to the J-10 “Vigorous Dragon” multirole fighters that patrol the Taiwan Strait today. The guide is illustrated with accurate profile artworks of some of the best—and least—known aircraft, such as the Shenyang J-8 interceptor, which served in the late Cold War in great numbers and was a copy of the Soviet MiG-21; the antitank armed Harbin Z-9 helicopter; the Shenyang J-15 carrier-based fourth-generation multirole fighter; the Caihong 4 surveillance drone; and the latest Chengdu J-20. Modern Chinese Military Aircraft is an essential reference guide for modelers and enthusiasts of military aviation.

Ryan Cunningham is an aviation and defense writer and editor who has worked on numerous aviation books and magazines over the last 20 years.
