About the Author

Tom Cooper is an Austrian aerial warfare analyst and historian. Following a career in worldwide transportation business - during which he established a network of contacts in the Middle East and Africa - he moved into narrow-focus analysis and writing on small, little-known air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives. That resulted in specialisation in such Middle Eastern air forces as of those of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, plus various African and Asian air forces. Except for authoring and co-authoring more than 30 books - including an in-depth analysis of major Arab air forces at wars with Israel in period 1955-1973 - and over 1000 articles, Cooper is a regular correspondent for multiple defence-related publications.


The book is excellently documented and comprehensively researched and will be for the time being the definitive account of MIG and SUKHOI fighters in the skies of Africa. * Philippine Air Force Review * Special books they are these 2 volumes about a large group of countries in the continent Africa and then especially in -what the writers call- the `Sub-Sahara'. 5 stars. * *
