Andreas has been interested in China's culture, history and aviation for decades and began writing in 2007. His first publication was a three-part series on the Chinese aviation industry and its projects, published by Germany's FliegerRevue. This was later expanded and published in English as The Dragon's Wings (2013). With Harpia Publishing he produced Modern Chinese Warplanes - a comprehensive directory of the PLAAF's structure, order of battle and current operational systems, published in 2012. This was complemented by the more strategically focused Flashpoint China in 2016 and the original research is now being completely revised in three parts covering Naval Aviation (2018), the PLAAF (2018) and soon, for the first time, the PLA Army Aviation (2019). He also works as a Chinese military aviation researcher and China news reporter for AirForces Monthly, Air International, Combat Aircraft and Flug Revue.
The description of Chinese aircraft serials will be helpful to modellers wanting to build specific airframes. * Airfix Model World *
