Italeri 1236 Sea Harrier FRS.1 1:72 Scale Model Kit
The British Aerospace Sea Harrier was developed to equip the air arm sections of the British Royal Navy, with the main operational role of fleet air defence aircraft. It entered into service during the late ‘70s and early ‘80s as a VTOL / STOVL (Short take-off and vertical landing) capable fighter. During the Falklands war in 1982, it demonstrated its operational effectiveness when deployed on HMS Invincible and HMS Hermes. Despite its inability to match the speed and flight characteristics of opposing aircraft, such as the Mirage 111, the Sea Harrier was highly manoeuvrable and reliable in all operating conditions. This was thanks to its effective offensive armament capability, which included two 30mm ADEN guns installed in fuselage pods and 4 sub-wing hardpoints for launching air-to-air missiles.
