"Aleutian Tiger P-40 Warhawk" - Map Art Print by Craig Tinder
Aleutian Tiger P-40 Warhawk
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 fine art print includes an aged background designed from an actual World War II military map. A timeless design for any decor!
