Griffin Tiger







Griffin Tiger
Graphite pencil on 300gsm Arches Smooth
Prints made to order


The Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter - EC 665 Tiger is the Army's eyes and teeth. Operated by 1st Aviation Regiment in Darwin, the aircraft is the cutting edge in technology. Armed with a 30mm chin mounted GIAT DEFA M781 cannon to engage ground or air targets, 70mm Forges de Zeebruge (FZ) rockets and/or Helfire II Semi Active Laser guided air to ground missiles, and weapons counter measures, the ARH Tiger can pack a punch.

This image shows an ARH Tiger with the image of a Griffin, the symbol of the Australian Army's 1st Aviation Regiment.

Enquire here for prints.

The image below left was a special presentation for a member of the ARH Capability. Major Scott served in the REME and RAEME and gave 20 years of service. Upon his departure from the Army, his colleagues commissioned the artist to create a special image for his farewell. The result was the RAEME badge (which is almost identical to the REME badge) and the RAEME colours fading to white where an ARH Tiger emerges.
