Performanse lovaca u praksi. Fantom protiv MiGa-21. Kako izvesti manevar ’prevrtanje’ u MiG-u ispod 1000 m visine. Neiskorištene mogucnosti manevrisanja pri malim brzinama.
Knjiga je spoj popularne i tehnicke vrste knjiga, pisana jednostavnim jezikom uz puno dijagrama i razjašnjenja o performansama lovaca. Tome smo dodali praktican primer analize performansi 2 zanimljiva aviona. Tu je i razjašnjenje jednog "neobjašnjivog " manevra MIGa-21 tokom rata na Bliskom istoku cime nije upoznat ni jedan operater tog aviona.

Za ta dva aviona korištene su javnosti dostupne publikacije, ali provucene kroz neke programe na racunaru kako bi ti podaci bili razumljivi i širokom krugu citalaca.
Knjiga ima 104 strane (B5) od cega su polovina dijagrami, uz nešto fotografija na kraju. Ima 3 cilja:
- da objasni razumljivim jezikom i graficki performanse (najsloženije stvari pisane popularnim jezikom),
- da poredi performanse popularnog americkog i ruskog aviona iz cega bi mogli uciti i operateri tih aviona,
- da razjasni manevar MiGa-21, koji je cesta tema casopisa i emisija na TVu (Hiistory, Discovery..)

The book is an attempt to blend together official technical and pilot’s manuals of two competitive aircraft into easily understandable - common format using the necessary EAS/Mach/altitude/weight transformation tools with comparison results that could not be found elsewhere.
The book deals with practical aspects of performances with operational limitations. Why aircraft does not turn sideways or why lift is limited, does it stops at certain angle of attack as textbooks teach, why the envelope curve is dented at transonic speeds, what limits aircraft at max speed, how aircraft that has ceiling 50,000 feet can fly to 70,000 ft and in record flights to 100,000 ft, why take-off speed definition is outdated are some of the issues dealt with simple words and graphically.
That includes take-off, climb, acceleration, max and min speed, ceiling 1-g and dynamic, turns – maximum attainable, structural, actuator power or aerodynamic and thrust limited, range and endurance, descent and landing performance. One could find completely opposite facts than previously thought. The book also explains how it was possible for MiG to do a Split-S maneuver within 3000 feet during one wartime situation, the figure which aircraft operators couldn’t duplicate in latter date, nor it was in aircraft manual. The chapter resolves unexploited low speed maneuvering capability useful to aircraft operators.
The emphasis is on diagrams because they tell much more than words. The idea is to learn things behind simple figures.
