TORNADO INTERCEPTOR & TORNADO FORCE
by Richard Taylor
A pair of folio drawings – only available as a matching-numbered set!
Introduced into front line service by the RAF in 1979, the two-seater, multi-role Panavia Tornado soon developed into the RAF’s primary ground attack aircraft.
Originally designed to fly low and fast through Soviet air defences and intercept Russian bombers during the Cold War, throughout a long and distinguished service with the RAF Tornados also saw action in many other combat operations. These include both Gulf Wars, in the Balkans during the Kosovo crisis, and missions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, conducting thousands of high-precision strike missions, armed reconnaissance patrols against targets of opportunity and providing invaluable close air support for ground forces.
In March 2019, after 40 years in service, the last RAF Tornados were finally retired.
Completed in his trademark technique of using a mixture of graphite with subtle colour highlights, Richard pays tribute to this legendary aircraft by depicting two famous variants:
- TORNADO INTERCEPTOR features an F3, the fighter version.
- TORNADO FORCE shows GR4s, the multi-role configuration.
