Angelo Romano continues his colorful coverage of “US Navy Electronic Threat Environment Squadrons” in Electronic Aggressors: US Navy Electronic Threat Environment Squadrons, Part Two 1978-2000 – No 304 in Ginter Books’ “US Navy Squadron Histories”.
The lavishly illustrated study surveys:
- Fleet Electronic Warfare Support Group (FEWSG),
- Fleet Tactical Readiness Group (FTRG),
- Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 33 (VAQ-33),
- Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 34 (VAQ-34),
- Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 35 (VAQ-35), and
- Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron 11 (VQ-11).
Romano’s spread on Operation Fox proved particularly illuminating. But eye candy really vends this vital volume.
Nearly 500 shots – mostly color – tincture topics. Nearly seventy color plates – profiles and unit badges – will make model markings mavens happy.
Want to know how to weather your EA-7? Scan pages 99-134. Looking for a dynamite KC-135A conversion? Page 6 shots will blow your mind.
Tech-manual excerpts will further delight detail Nazis. And dozens of tables and graphs amplify the account. But some captions confused me. Whom do photos really depict on page 141?
Still, wow: what a book! US Naval aviation enthusiasts will grab drool cups. And modelers everywhere will go bonkers – just picking project possibilities!
With thanks to Ginter Books!
