Great find! I had no idea. I've gone and bought the book—I don't care how good it is.

I remember that book and picture well! Presumably the sword wielding chap in a turban is the stock Boris Vallejo?

When I saw the Harrier pics, my first thought was "anyone for tenous?", but the fireflashes on the guns match perfectly. What was the image source?

Yes. The artist modified the front (nose, vents and cockpit), but copied the rest (fuselage, wings, tails, rocket launches) exactly. As you say, even the fire flashes are identical.

You can see it in this transparent overlay:

I found the image on Google. I don't know where the original artist got it from.

I expect so. I haven't worked out which image, though.
