Photosniper No. 21 Ka-50 & Ka-52. Werewolf, Black Shark, Erdogan, Alligator and the others 

From the publisher:"  Kamov design bureau was established in late 1940s after successful demonstration of single engine ultra-light Ka-8 type and its improved derivate Ka-10, which was maiden flown on 30th of August 1949. Both were rather experimental types used for exploring of options how to utilize the helicopter and the latter one was adopted by the Soviet naval aviation into the regular service. Due to small dimensions and small footprint given by coaxial rotors Ka-10s were for the first time deployed on Soviet Navy vessels and gave to both Experimental design bureau OKB Kamov and Soviet Navy valuable expertise with maritime helicopter operation. In total four helicopters were test flown by the naval aviators with following order for ten serial ships. However, due to uncovered cockpit both types were really limited in its operational use and it just gave the background for further helicopter design for Kamov. • 96 pages • 202 colour photographs • Gloss coated paper • Format (sizes): A4 (210x297 mm) • Soft cover binding"

Photosniper No. 23 British Infantry Tanks In World War II  

From the publisher:" Before the start of the Second World War, British armoured doctrine was in a terrible muddle.  Opinion had been divided between the proponents of the tank who saw it as the weapon of break-in, using it as an infantry support weapon, and those who saw it as the weapon of break-out, using it to restore mobility and to destroy the enemy’s forces behind the frontline.  In many ways it was a division between those who saw the tank solely through the prism of the experience of the First World War, and those who saw it a decisive weapon for the future.  Britain was also conscious of the continuing requirements for imperial policing, in which small tanks and armoured cars had already proved their worth.  As a consequence, it was decided that Britain needed three different classes of tanks: Light tanks for the policing role that could also be used for reconnaissance duties in a general war; fast and lightly armoured Cruiser tanks for break-out and exploitation, and heavily armoured but slow Infantry tanks for the break-in. • 96 pages • about250 archive photographs • 12 color profiles (12 views) • Gloss coated paper • Format (sizes): A4 (210x297 mm) • Soft cover binding"
