The Convair B-36 enjoyed a brief part of US Nuclear deterrent strategy. As WW2 progressed, orders were sent to the air craft designers for bigger planes that could carry heavier loads longer distances. The B-36 was to provide that answer in the form of a huge, six engine pusher plane with swept wings. Later, jet pods from the Boeing B-47 helped speed along this giant bomber.
Less than 400 were built. They could carry the 10,000 lb nuclear bomb to its target. As the bombs got smaller, the B-52's that were entering service were more capable of giving the US its airborne nuclear attack ability.
This book is able to take you through the development of the B-36, early design to production models and experimental versions. Plenty of crisp B&W photos, great line drawings, shots of the interior, weapons and 2 color pages help you see this unique plane. It was a plane that blended WW2 technology with the upcoming jet technology it had a little of both that gave it a short but useful service life. A great book for modelers or those who don't want to pay a fortune for the larger B-36 books that are out there and those who want just enough information to satisfy your curiosity about this warbird.
