The revolutionary Harrier took to the skies in December, 1967, going on to become the star of the Royal Navy and Air Force during the Falkland Islands War in 1982. The McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II went on to become the star of the Marine Corps in Operations Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, and Enduring Freedom. This illustrated and accessible history explores the background that led to the development of this unique aircraft, charting the history and output of Hawker Aircraft Ltd from Sopwith onwards, through the Harrier's development, production, flight testing, and operational and combat history, and also considers its future replacement, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. An effective strike fighter for several nations for over 47 years, Harrier's longevity is testament to the practical design and viability of this unique combat aircraft.

The Harrier is amongst the most recognised and loved post-war British-designed military aircraft ever produced, and this book, the first of two volumes dealing with the type, covers the colour schemes and markings applied to the design from the prototype and development P.1127/Kestrel airframes of the early 1960s and in to its service use with the RAF as the GR.1/GR.3 and T.2/T.4, the Fleet Air Arm as the Sea Harrier FRS.1 and the upgraded F/A.2, US Marine Corps AV-8A, Spanish Navy 'Matador', Indian Navy FRS.51 and Thai Navy navalised Harriers. Coverage of the original tin wing versions is taken right up to 2000 with hundreds of full colour profiles and 4-views, with detailed and informative captions.

Once described as a 'peculiar British oddity' and of 'not being able to carry a matchbox across a football field -- let alone carry an effective warload', the ubiquitous 'Harrier' has developed into one of the most recognisable and effective aircraft of the last four decades. Designed by the innovate Sidney Camm of Hawker Siddeley, the Harrier introduced the 'jump-jet' concept into modern warfare, and it was the Royal Air Force who quickly saw the possibilities of this unique aircraft and brought it into squadron service. Although adopted by the US Marines, this book concentrates on the Harrier in RAF service, from the P.1127, via the Kestrel and GR.1 to the Harrier GR.9 flown by today's pilots. The RAF Harrier MDF will look at the development of the aircraft, its war roles in the Falklands conflict, the Gulf and current operations over Afghanistan.

During the Falklands War in 1982, RAF and Fleet Air Arm Harriers and Sea Harriers flew in action against the invading Argentinean forces. RAF Harriers have also seen active service over Bosnia, in Desert Storm 1 and 2, and in Afghanistan. The Hawker Siddeley/Bae Harrier, formally referred to as the ‘Harrier’ or colloquially as the ‘Jump Jet’, is a British-designed military jet combat aircraft capable of Vertical/Short Take-off and Landing (V/STOL) via thrust vectoring. The Harrier family is the only truly successful design of this type from the many that arose in the 1960s.The Hawker P.1127 first flew as a prototype in 1960 and the RAF ordered a modified P.1127/Kestrel as the Harrier GR1 in 1966. Harriers of a number of different marks have since been used by the RAF, US Marine Corps, the Royal Navy, the Spanish Navy and the Royal Thai Navy.

The conception of the Pegasus engine in 1957 upset all the conventions of aircraft design. It was previously usual for aircraft designers to seek a suitable engine, but this was an engine that sought an aircraft. The aircraft thatresulted was the famous Harrier that is still in front-line service with air forces around the world including the RAF and US Marine Corps. This book takes an in-depth look at the engine's original design concept, initial production and flight testing. It then goes on to explain how the developments and improvements have been made over the ensuing years and includes experiences of operational combat flying, both from land and sea.The book is written in a non technical style that makes comfortable reading for all enthusiasts and historians and is copiously illustrated with many previously unseen photographs and diagrams.
