subject of this review is ADPS 006 in their Modern Combat Aircraft
Series and it covers the history of the Israeli Air Force’s 119 Squadron
– the Bat Squadron.
book provides a history of the squadron from its formation in 1956 to
present day. It is logically broken down by era and by the aircraft
flown by the squadron during the era.
aircraft flown by the Bat Squadron include:
F-4E Phantom II
F-16I Sufa (Storm)
detailed action and operational history of each of these aircraft is
within its respective chapter.
far as I am concerned, the best part of the book is the photographs, all
146 of them. Photographic coverage of operational Israeli Air Force
aircraft is sparse to say the least and what is available is generally
pretty poor and grainy, the pages of this book however hold some
excellent photos both historical and modern day.
book is soft back with thin card covers, A4 in size and comprises 64
Pages printed on high quality glossy paper.
is more of a “history of” type book than a
modelling reference but it will appeal to both camps at the same time.
Recommended to those with an interest in Israeli Air Force combat
