Volume 3 of the Classic collection of the adventures of pilots Tanguy and Laverdure, published by Editions Zéphyr / Dargaud. In a tense Cold War setting, “Gunshots in the Alps” (in French, “Coups de feu dans les Alpes”) plunges the famous duo into a Switzerland swarming with spies.
The plot? A Vampire belonging to the Swiss Air Force crashes in the Alps for reasons which remain unclear. Suddenly, the question of whether to renew the fighter aircraft fleet in Switzerland arises. The politician responsible for purchasing a fleet of Mirage III aircraft is involved in a scandal… Tanguy and Laverdure, tasked with escorting a Mirage, find themselves faced with dangerous geopolitical games.
