In this book, aviation photojournalist, Steve Davies, brings to life the multi-role fighter jets which have become some of the most essential tools in the global war on terror and a fundamental aspect of the US military’s fighting capability. These jets played a vital role in operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, seeing extended combat service throughout the 1990s and into the 21st century, and are widely acknowledged as being some of the most effective and deadly strike aircraft ever built.

US Multi-Role Fighter Jets includes detailed studies and striking photography of the F-15 Strike Eagle, the Lockheed Martin F-16, the Hornet and Super Hornet, the F-22 Raptor, and the F-35 Lightning II, as well as a discussion of the weapons systems used, the armaments deployed with each aircraft, and the evolution of US tactics and techniques since the end of the Cold War. With an introduction to modern multi-role fighters and text on the development and use of each jet, interspersed with bone-jangling first-hand accounts from pilots, this is an essential book for all those interested in modern military aviation.

”[Steve Davies] has once again produced a book full of well-researched information and personal stories… Steve’s portrayal of the most recent United States Air Force fighters is insightful and indicative of a special man that has studied these birds for a long time. He entices me to want to fly the newest fighter, the F-35, someday!”
