Have you ever wanted to fly a fast jet? This new edition of 'Attack Fighters' looks at how the fastest, toughest machines in the sky are designed, built, and flown. Check out the air-superiority F-15 Eagle and multi-role Saab Gripen. Find out how the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk stealth attacker "hides" from radar, and why the Harrier II needs to "jump." Take a closer look at the Lockheed F-22 Raptor, from concept through Prototype to inside the computerized cockpit. Put on your G-suit and get ready for takeoff! The revised and updated 'Designed for Success' series shows how designers create the very best cars, planes, motorcycles, and other exciting vehicles. It explains the many design challenges that designers and engineers must overcome and the factors they must take into account, such as materials, cost, and new technology.
