Description Extended Information
 
Italeri ITA48154 RAF Harrier GR. Mk. 9A Jump Jet - 1st Squadron, Cottesmore Air Force Base [Low-Vis Scheme] (1:100 Scale) "Obsolete weapons do not deter."
- British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

The AV-8B Harrier II is a second generation vertical short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) aircraft based on the original British Harrier design of the late 1960's. Combining tactical mobility, responsiveness, reduced operating cost, and basing flexibility -- both afloat and ashore -- V/STOL aircraft are well-suited to the special combat and expeditionary requirements of the US Marine Corps.

The primary mission of the AV-8B Harrier II is to provide close air support to ground forces. Secondary missions include short range interdiction, fighter escort, deck launched interception, and combat air patrol (CAP).

After completing operational evaluation trials in March 1985, the USMC AV-8B Harrier II was formally approved for full production some six months later. A two-seat training version was introduced in 1987 and a night attack version entered service in late 1989.

Pictured here is a 1:100 scale replica of a RAF Harrier GR. Mk. 9A Jump Jet that was attached to the 1st Squadron then deployed to Cottesmore Air Force Base. Now in stock!
