    "SB and Ar-2, Stalin's Speed Bombers", Mikhail Maslov, 2010, Moscow, Russian Text, 95 pp, approximately 10 3/8 x 8 x 3/4", laminated hardcover; Includes dozens of period photos, color illustrations and technical drawings.

    When this airplane was first deployed in the Spanish Civil War, Franco's pilots were shocked to discover that their fighters could not match the speed of this new Soviet-made SB bomber. Its speed was for while unmatched by any fighter plane of the day and it showed its worth in may early aerial conflicts of WW2. Interestingly, the SB was the first Soviet airplane licensed to a foreign manufacturer: it was produced in Czechoslovakia prior to the German takeover, and later over 100 bombers were used by the Luftwaffe and Germany's allies under the designation B-71.

    Although the SB was obsolete by 1941, Soviet pilots put it to good use against the Germans throughout the first half of the war, and the Ar-2 model based on the SB design was also successfully deployed as a dive bomber. The book covers history of design, technical characteristics, production history, combat deployment and even civilian use of this airplane.
