CHEETAH - Guardians of the Nation

In 1981 the SAAF produced a Staff Requirement to replace the Mirage III's and F1's. From this requirement the Cheetah was born. The author covers the initial development of this Project, right through to the arrival of the Cheetah C.

This book was published to coincide with the final withdrawal of all the Cheetahs on 2 April 2008. It is A4 with 194 pages and plenty of Colour and B&W photographs. For the modeller there are 5 pages of side drawings. It is available in Hard cover and Soft cover. The Hard cover is a limited edition of 200 numbered copies, with the first numbers 1 – 80 being allocated to the first members who qualified on Cheetahs.

Great book

It is a very good title. Contains all the information available regarding the Denel Cheetah in all its variants. Since its release, survivors of the model were sold to Ecuador and that is the only part missing. Highly recommended to aviation enthusiasts.
