The Boeing CH-47 Chinook medium/heavy lift helicopter was a reliable workhorse for Special Operations Forces (SOF) in Afghanistan. It was used for force deployments, insertion of equipment and resupply. Able to carry three times the number of troops than a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, Chinooks were regularly used to insert SOF operators on direct action missions, particularly deep into insurgent dominated areas.

"Into Bandit Country"

  • 1. Metal License Plate Artwork (6”x12”) (signed on the back by the artist Silvia Pecota)

    2. Watercolour print (6”x12”)

    3.  Black Metal Frame

    4.  Backer support + 4 black screws

    5. Clear protective shield

    6. Certificate of Authenticity

  • Also included is a print of the same dimensions as the license plate (6"x12"). It is printed on watercolour paper using archival inks. This can also be framed using a similar metal frame and it is for internal display only, as in a garage, rec room or "man cave". 

    The watercolour print can be an exact copy of the license plate ordered or an alternate selection can be made. Please specify which image you would prefer for the watercolour print.



    As the license plate may be exposed to the elements, the plastic shield (which is included in the set), should be used for extra protection.

    If using a license plate frame for the watercolour print: mark the 4 holes and use a hole puncher to make the holes for the screws.

    When assembling to hang the license plate on a wall, make sure the side that is marked “BACK” (on the black backer support) faces out. This offers support for hanging onto a screw or nail on a wall.
