This print features an early morning mission flown by the "Skullbangers" of the 190th Fighter Squadron Idaho Air National Guard. During 2016 the 190th deployed to the Syrian/Iraq theater of operations and immediately commenced around-the-clock airstrikes against ISIS.

By the time the 6 month deployment ended, the squadron had fired over 167,000 rounds of 30 MM. In addition the hogs dropped thousands of precision guided munitions in direct support of U.S.-backed forces liberating towns in both Syria and Iraq from the brutal grip of the terrorist army.

In this scene two Warthogs are attacking ISIS terrorists targets including a VBIED (vehicle born improvised explosive device) blowing up on a roadway below. The primary Hog in the painting has just smoked a group of terrorist fighters seeking refuge in an orchard below and you can see smoke from ISIS buildings in the village to the North.
