   During this period, the the leading nations of the world were divided into two ideological / political camps - communism and democracy. - led by the United States and the Soviet Union  Conflict between them led to what came to be known as "The Cold War."   It manifested itself on both a strategic and a tactical level.  The two opposing forces began building built vast nuclear arsenals to be delivered to their target by long-range bombers.  Each side maintained fighters for air defense.  Other fighters were used in the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars.  So many aircraft were developed during this period that we've divided them into the following sections:
