What are the twin-boom jet beasties on the front cover?  They look like the offspring of a Sea Vixen and a Focke-Wulf Flitzer - a sort of 80s-tech de Havilland Venom.

BAC P.70 EAG.8436 (p294 BSP:2 Jet bomber since 1949 2nd Edition) evolved Jaguar/Harrier hybrid to AST.396

A 3-View is also in the 1st addition, page 185.

Cheers Robert, I had the 2nd Edition to hand where as the 1st editions were in other bookcases or rooms.

Anyway one to look forward to with the focus on the Attack helicopters

I've got one of Martin's P.1216 kits, the fuselage center section looks very similar. You could use the booms from the kit too ---

Gondor:
I have an old, and I mean old Airfix Jaguar sitting around not doing anything at the moment, I could be tempted to have a go at the P.70

AS.12:
Oooh this book is definitely on my wishlist now.

I sort-of 'grew up' with the A.129 through the 1980s and it seemed that it was never going to enter service, I couldn't understand why it had such a glacial development process, and that was just the weak-engined Mk 1 let alone the Mk 2 that the AAC wanted.

One point-of-divergence I've considered as a head-WHIF was an interim solution built on the S-70; Shorts took a license from Sikorsky in the early 1980s whilst Westland was faffing with the WG.30 Fat Lynx.  The proposal was as a Wessex replacement but with the ESSS wings it might have made a useful Royal Hind for a couple of decades, too.
