Lake believed the submarine held enormous promise as an engine of... More > commerce. In the future, he proposed, submarines would harvest oysters from the ocean floor, and transport cargo without interference from storms. In 1893, inspired by a U.S. Navy challenge, Lake constructed his first submarine, Argonaut Junior. It was followed by the more advanced Protector, which was sold to the Czar of Russia in 1904. Lake spent the next seven years designing boats for the Russian and the Austro-Hungarian navies. He finally returned to the United States in 1912, and eventually he sold 24 submarines to the U.S. Navy. His success was short-lived however, and the company went into bankruptcy in the 1920s. Simon Lake remained active in the field of submarine technology, and advised the U.S. Navy during WWII.< Less

The P-39 Airacobra was designed by Bell’s brilliant engineer, Robert Woods. The plane featured a mid-engine design, intended to allow it to carry a lethal 37mm cannon in the nose. An... More > all-metal, low-wing design, the P-39 was the first fighter to feature tricycle landing gear. The plane debuted in 1939, and proved impressive in tests. Yet the aircraft lacked a large fuel capacity that limited range, and pilots learned that its performance dropped off markedly at altitudes above 17,000 feet. Despite this, over 9,500 P-39s were built. Almost half were sent to the USSR, where Soviet pilots, flying low-level attack missions, achieved devastating results. Ace Alexander Pokryshkin flew the plane exclusively and scored nearly 60 kills. Originally printed by the USAAF and the RAF, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this warbird.

More > inventory,the F-105 could exceed Mach 1.0 at sea level, and achieve Mach 2.0 at high altitude. It could carry up to 14,000 pounds of ordnance, or about as much as most WWII heavy bombers. The F-105 served as the primary strike aircraft in the early years of the Vietnam conflict, and its pilots flew over 20,000 missions. These included “wild weasel” flights intended to suppress North Vietnamese air defenses. The dangerous aspects of these missions help account for the aircraft’s high loss rate — out of 833 F-105s produced, 320 were lost in combat in S.E. Asia.
