The book, Soviet Transport Aircraft Since 1945 is the result of a long period of intensive research and provides a detailed study of 40 types of aircraft designed, built and flown in the former Soviet Union and worldwide by the state airline Aeroflot, between the end of World War II in 1945 through the late 1960s. “Soviet Transport Aircraft Since 1945” gives a realistic impression of the vast transport system of the former Soviet Union. As far as possible, the design history, layout, structural characteristics and service life of each type is fully reviewed. Also, because of the expanse of territory for which it is responsible, Aeroflot uses a varied fleet of aircraft, which includes short, medium and long-range turbine-propeller types, many single and twin-engine piston aircraft and a broad range of helicopters.
