Covering both the indigenous designs employed early on through to the American fighters flown for much of the period, the camouflage and markings of these aircraft are described and illustrated in great detail.
Fully illustrated with many rare wartime photos. Color profiles of many representative aircraft. Essential reading for aircraft enthusiasts and model-makers!
“…extremely useful title…Wealth of photos combined with superb artwork make it a must for anyone interested in Swedish aviation…”
