PAF Enters the Jet Age
Size: 2ft x 3ft Oil   Date: Aug-51
Artwork Located:
Basic Staff School PAF Badaber

Description:
Attackers - the PAF's first jet fighters - arrived from England in August 51 and were allotted to No 11 Squadron. Although designed primarily as a ship-borne machine, the Attacker was also produced in a land version, offering the nautical advantage of short take-off and landing characteristics, with a heavy load of bombs and rockets. Despite some teething problems, this first-generation jet fighter was soon mastered by PAF pilots and was used quite effectively. The aircraft also participated in fire-power displays on many occasions but never saw combat. It was phased out in 1958. The artist shows an Attacker overtaking a Fury during a simulated interception.
