Cold War Military Aircraft is a mini encyclopedia of the most important and influential aircraft that were used during the Cold War.

This pocket compendium app contains over 300 aircraft and lets you explore:
- the evolution of jet aircraft design, from the WWII Gloster Meteor fighter to the AV-8B Harrier V/STOL attack aircraft,
- the changes in fighter aircraft designs, from gunfighters to missile platforms, during the Korean War (MiG-15 and F-86 Sabre), the Vietnam War (MiG-17, MiG-21, F-8 Crusader and F-4 Phantom II), the Six-Day War (Mirage III and Hunter) and the Falklands War (Super Étendard, A-4 Skyhawk and Sea Harrier),
- the development of fighter-bombers (from the F-84 family to the Tornado multirole aircraft), attack aircraft (from the piston engined A-1 Skyraider to the stealth F-117 Nighthawk) and close air support aircraft (from the ad hoc adapted AC-47 Spooky and AC-119 Shadow/Stinger to the bulletproof A-10 Thunderbolt II and Su-25 Grach),
- the competition between the nuclear-capable strategic bomber concepts (A-5 Vigilante, Vulcan, Mirage IV or Tu-16) and the interceptors intended to stop them (F-89 Scorpion, the Century Series jets, Lightning or MiG-25/MiG-31),
- the advancements in combat helicopters, from small utility helicopters (like the Kamov Ka-15 or Mil Mi-1) to large cargo cranes (CH-54 Tarhe or Mil Mi-10), troop transport rotorcraft (Hueys, Stallions, Chinooks, Super Frelons and Pumas) and dedicated attack helicopters (including the AH-64 Apache, the Cobra family and the Bo 105 PAH-1),
- the arrival of the definitive design for transport airplanes (the turboprop C-130 Hercules or the turbofan Il-76),
- the increased use of reconnaissance aircraft, from light observation airplanes (O-1 Bird Dog or O-2 Skymaster) or helicopters (OH-6 Cayuse) to highly engineered designs pushing the boundaries of manned flight (like the U-2 or the SR-71),
- the replacement of piston powered trainers (T-28 Trojan) with more advanced jet propelled aircraft (like the Magister, Hawk or the Albatros).

Each aircraft entry contains at least one archive image, a short text that summarises the aircraft's development and service history and a detailed specifications table offering place of origin and production information, crew, weight and dimensions data, armament details, powerplant and performance figures.

Excellent app but one thing…

Honestly one of the best apps out there but I can’t seem to find the E-1 Tracer, I’m not sure if it is yet to be added or I’m just missing it but if the app is missing the plane can you be sure to add it in the future.

Developer Response ,

The E-1 Tracer is included. Thank you!
