Harrier II Fighter
Harrier II is an extensively modified and updated version of the Harrier GR3/AV-8A Vertical/Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) close air support aircraft, allowing even greater tactical deployment. The ground attack and close air support aircraft has been jointly developed with Boeing and is in service with the Royal Air Force (GR7 and T10), US Marine Corps (AV-8B and TAV-8B) and Spanish Navy (EAV-8B). Like its predecessor, the Harrier II can operate from conventional bases, dispersed sites and a wide range of surface vessels but is able to carry double the payload or operate over twice the range - of earlier versions. Both the RAF and USMC operate night attack variants of the Harrier II.
