You know that:

  • The fighter was developed in the 1970s as a successor to the Hawker Siddeley Harrier, which cost a staggering $6.5 billion to develop at the time ?
  • The Harrier was in production for 22 years until 2003 ?
  • The first prototype version of the AV-8B flew on November 9, 1978, hovering for about 7 minutes over the Lambert-St. Louis airfield after a perpendicular takeoff ?
  • Harrier series aircraft were the first to be equipped with the perpendicular takeoff capability now known as VTOL ?
  • The new generation of Harriers had digital instruments and such different flight characteristics from its predecessor that RAF Command had to reduce the number of units ordered to make enough money to completely and laboriously retrain the pilots ?
  • The main combat purpose of the Harrier is direct support of ground forces and, in the case of naval forces, fleet defence against enemy aircraft ?
  • The aircraft also has control jets on the tail, nose and wingtips to increase manoeuvrability at low speeds ?
  • Harriers are extremely demanding aircraft to pilot during takeoff and landing, where most accidents have occurred, 3 times more than, for example, the F/A-18 ?
  • The fighter is equipped with in-flight refueling technology ?
  • The wings are made of modern carbon fiber technology ?
  • During the Gulf War, Harriers made 3,380 combat sorties ?
  • The aircraft, which are in the armament of several armies, will be laid down by at least 2025 ?
