About the book

This brief outline of the development of aircraft construction in the Soviet Union during the fifty years of Soviet power does not claim to be a comprehensive and profound analysis of the building up of the Soviet aircraft industry.
The author assumed a more limited task: to describe the main stages
in the progress of aircraft construction by showing the technical growth of scientific and design thinking of Soviet designers from the October Revolution to the present.

The book was translated from Russian by E. Vilim under Israel Program for Scientific Translations was published in 1970 by NASA Technical Translations.
