Buyworthy is one of the most important companies dedicated to the playing cards online business in Australia. In the summer of 2017 they decided to launch Modern Warships, the first of a series of Bicycle military-themed decks. After funding and fulfilling it, they have just launched the second deck in the series: BICYCLE MODERN AIRCRAFT.
Like the previous one, this deck shows images of modern airplanes grouped by countries. Whereas the court cards and aces depict aircraft that belong to the four main powers in this matter (United States, China, Russia and India), the numbered cards represent a total of 36 countries more (one for each card). Number of units in the country or their destructive power have been taken into account to select them.
The back shows one of the most historic and popular fighter jets, the F-16, still in use around the world.
The past and future of fighter aircraft is represented in the jokers.
Born from the passion for combat aircraft, there is a conscientious research and information gathering behind this deck that will delight fans of military aeronautics. You can also download a document with details about the cards and the guidelines to choose the different countries and planes.
The Bicycle branded deck will be printed by the USPCC in a limited print run of 1000 units. In addition, the project offers a collector’s book to go deeper in the knowledge about these impressive flying machines.
If you like it, you can get this deck and the previous one from the series (also very limited) in the project website.
