Headquarters Air Defence Command
In the early 1950s, the Hawker Fury was the frontline fighter of the Pakistan Air Force. Armed with 20 mm cannons and an effective load of bombs and rockets, the Fury was considered ideal for air support of ground forces and was rated very high among the combat aircraft of its class.
The painting shows a pair of Furies scrambling from the border airfield of Miranshah in a typical response to an 'XX call" from the Pak Army for air support. The Fury remained in service with the PAF from 1949 to 1960.
