Fleet defence

from 65.00

In 1982 Fleet Air Arm Sea Harrier's proved the potency of this tactical fleet defence fighter during the Falklands campaign despite a potentially superior (Mirage equipped) foe, bad weather and limited resources. 

The professionalism of the Harrier force has been well documented by historians, at the time many military pundits felt the Harrier would fair badly against the Argentineans as it was not at the cutting edge of air superiority technology, was relatively slow and had an awesomely high wing loading. The British tactics and the nature of the engagements played to the strengths of the Harriers.

"Fleet Defence" depicts 2 FRS.1's of 801 NAS pursuing attacking A4's close to the task force. 

Original oil on canvas, image size 61cm x 46cm. Signed by the artist. Framed.

£650.00

Signed and numbered limited edition giclee prints. Image size = 49cm x 37cm.

315 gsm fine art paper. Edition size x 195  £65.00

330 gsm cotton canvas. Edition size x 95  £153.00
