The Hawker Siddeley Harrier is a truly unique aircraft. It was the first VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) Combat aircraft in the world. Developed from The Hawker Kestrel of the mid 60s, The Hawker Siddeley Harrier "jump jet" brought new meaning to the term "close air support." The Harrier was so successful that the United States Marine Corps purchased a licence to build the aircraft for its own use.
The GR.3 was the first of the Harrier variants to see combat, joining Operation Corporate, the re-taking of the Falkland Islands, engaging Argentinian Forces in ground attack missions. Replaced by the GR.5 Harrier II, the GR.3 proved itself to be a capable and successful aircraft.
The Airfix kit of the Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR3 is an industry standard of this iconic British design. It is provided with two marking options. including one for an aircraft that fought in the South Atlantic during the battle over the Falkland Islands.
