BAe Sea Harrier - Technical data and discussion

Was it possible for the FA.2 to carry 4 x AIM 120 in ADDITION to 2 AIM 9 like the AV-8B Plus can? If not, was this some sort of limitation with the first-generation harriers or was there another reason?

It is mainly the wing. The first gen harrier wing has 2 less hard points than the second gen

Anyone know what “IPD” and “JCW” are on FA.2s RWR?

I-Band PD radar, J-band CW illumination.

Which would translate to “basically 90% of aircraft at top tier” and "you’re about to be hit by the steel chair known as the R-23R or R-24R.

It is time!

Arguably isnt the SHAR camo 1 that should go on the TT early version? Would fit better imo but still nice to see.

Does this need to be changed or are we missing anything?

So this has been confirmed?

They’re missing on the outboard pylons but you take missiles there so it’s kinda pointless.

Yes it’s from a National Archives doc.

i still find it funny that they would give us the skin for the FRS 1 instead of the falklands FRS 1(e)
and also sad that they again didnt even bother giving the aircraft its registration number
