Journalist and author Alexander Mladenov joins us from Sofia in Bulgaria to talk through the four generations of Soviet Fighter aircraft from the early MiGs and Yaks through to the later air-superiority models, familiar in the skies around the world today.

We talk about iconic models such as the MiG-21 and other lesser known variants in a fascinating journey through this epic era of aircraft design and production. Alex’s unique understanding and expert knowledge of these aircraft includes anecdotes and stories that bring his book ‘Soviet Cold War Fighters’ to life.

Enjoy the discussion with Alex who takes us on a journey through fighter technology in the Cold War from a Soviet perspective.
