Abstract

FOR some years the writer of this article has carefully studied the scanty and conflicting information available on the aircraft of the U.S.S.R. and the organization of both military and civil aeronautics. It has been our policy to publish, whenever possible, articles giving accurate—if of necessity limited—details of Russian developments. In this respect we would point out to readers that the contents of this present article may appear somewhat conservative, because only undoubted facts have been presented and, as such, it offers a commentary upon the mixture of fanciful propaganda and restricted information available—a fact which we have had to mention on each previous occasion that we have published a similar article.— EDITOR
