Back Issues

December 2014

In the December issue of Air Forces Monthly (AFM), we look at Baltic Air Policing and the NATO nations that have patrolled the skies for the last ten years. We provide a breakdown of the dates, detachments and aircraft involved.

Iran’s Mirage F1 fleet has been shrouded in mystery for many years - were the aircraft operational, upgraded or retired? Finally, Babak Taghvaee lifts the lid on the fleet with a comprehensive examination of the recently upgraded aircraft. Supporting the feature is an exclusive selection of images.

Following Thailand’s military coup in May 2013, the Royal Thai Army Aviation is now being modernised to reverse years of stagnation. AFM’s December Force Report looks at what is happening to the fleet.
Our Aircraft Profile looks at the USAF’s heavyweight hauler the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. We explain the development, introduction into service, operational use and the upgrades that keep the Fat Albert in service and hauling beans, bullets and troops around the globe.

As always, AFM’s Dave Allport brings you the latest military aviation news from around the world, and we provide an exclusive report on South Korea’s and Indonesia’s KF-X and IF-X fighter programme.
