Description

Alaskan Tigers
By Artist, Craig Tinder

Printed on a heavy, matte substrate, this archival art print is fade-resistant with an astonishingly high resolution to bring out rivet-level details.

The P-40's legacy is closely coupled with General Claire Lee Chennault's American Volunteer Group (AVG), otherwise known as the Flying Tigers. Chennault trained his crews to exploit the strengths of the P-40 to fight the Japanese - dive from high altitudes and attack. General Chennault's son, Col. John 'Jack' Chennault would use many of the same tactics while protecting Alaska's Aleutian Islands from Japanese invasion. Painted in a modified "shark-mouth" paint scheme, the 343rd Pursuit Group would defend the U.S. mainland from attack from mid-1942 to fall 1943.

This item is printed on demand and typically requires 2-3 day for printing prior to shipment.
