Billing-Roe Battleaxe transport planes of the Imperial Japanese Army Airforce, escorted by Kawasaki Ki-6 Fighters, commence the aerial invasion of Formosa, July 1932.
The fighters look like something you would see in The Sky Crawlers.
I never knew those Vickers planes were troop transports, I always thought they were bombers or something. Still, fantastic piece of work! gotta love interwar planes.
Impressive. Looks like old postcard.
Brilliant piece, especially the aircraft. Are they based on unused or abandoned prototypes? Really would like to see more of these.
The fighters in this picture are pretty cool looking.
The joy of the period is that there are all sorts of cool designs that aren't that well known. larger transport aircraft are slightly altered Vickers Victorias, which were used as troop carriers by the British immediately after WW1. The fighters are Westland Interceptors.
Cool picture, Ed. Did you compose it from separate ones?
