Air Power - The Cold War
Title: Air Power: The Cold War (2000)

Yakovlev Yak-28P 'FIREBAR'
MiGMan's Combat Diary Quite a handful around the circuit this one but heaps of power. The low- slung design reminds me of 1950's American autos.

These screenshots were taken in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 near Vladivostock, Russia.

Pilot's notes With around 300 Yak-28P's in service with the Soviet home interceptor force, the Firebar filled a key roll in the defense of the Soviet Union in the 60's and 70's.

2 versions entered service in 1961, the 'Firebar' interceptor and the glazed-nose 'Brewer' ground attack and recon aircraft, both of which were still in service well in into the 80's.
