This book for the first time describes the military fighter jet aviation in Latin America. It covers the eventful history of fighter jets in 17 countries ranging from Mexico in the north down to Argentina in the south.

Each country is covered type by type in chronological order. Information on each type is being provided related to purchase, squadron service, losses, upgrades and service history.

Each type ends with a table covering the number of delivered aircraft, different types and subtypes, delivery dates and known serial numbers.

Each of the over 100 aircraft types mentioned could be covered with at least one picture.

An appendix lists the existing plastic scale model kits in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale as wells as decal sheets in regards to the 17 Latin American air forces featured in the book.

REVIEWS

...exceptionally entertaining...With over 210 B&W and color photos, modelers and markings enthusiasts will especially appreciate this terrific tome. A helpful appendix even lists most - but not all - kits and decals available. It doesn't even demand sequential reading, either. I happily skipped from Argentina and Venezuela to Peru and the Dominican Republic - before consuming the rest. This encyclopedic effort utterly encourages sampling and savoring!  I loved Latin American Fighters. Harpia's cool compendium promises endless enjoyment for military aviation enthusiasts. Now how about a companion volume on Latin American piston-engine fighters?
