Just as its name boasts, the Sea Venom was an "all weather" carrier fighter, but beyond that role, it was also a capable interceptor, bomber and night fighter, too. A modification of the same manufacturer's Venom to allow use from aircraft carriers, it added foldable wings, a tail hook and beefed-up landing gear. Serving through 1970, the Sea Venom was also license-produced and employed by France as the Aquilon.

During the Suez War which began on October 31, 1956, many Sea Venoms launched from carrier decks against targets within Egypt. For this composition, Koike has chosen to depict an aircraft participating in "Operation Musketeer," a joint UK-French initiative.

This original painting is acrylic on heavy art board.  The board measures 54cm x 39cm, and the painted area is approximately 45cm x 34cm.
