Yukikaze - Chohei Kambayashi, Neil Nadelman

Despite all the jargon (so much jargon, so many acronyms ::sob::), this reads pretty smoothly. I don't know if it's the author, the translator, the publisher, or a combination of all three, but it makes me almost giddy. So far, I'd say if you're into military sci-fi with a particular focus on aerial warfare, this would be a good pick.

 

I wanted to read this because the back of the book said there would be a sentient fighter plane. Nothing like that yet, although I've already gotten to see Yukikaze in action a bit. However, I did just finish reading about a guy who created several prototype boomerangs (for fun, I guess?). He installed an AI in one of them, as one does, and that boomerang eventually sliced his face open. Foreshadowing?
