The Sea Harrier is a naval short take-off and vertical-landing/vertical take-off and landing jet fighter, reconnaissance and attack aircraft. A second, updated version for the Royal Navy was made as the Sea Harrier FA2, improving its air to air abilities and weapons compatibilities, along with a more powerful engine. The first aircraft was entered service in 1993. Although withdrawn from active Royal Navy service in 2006, Sea Harriers are used to train naval aircraft handlers at the Royal Navy School of Flight Deck Operations. The Sea Harrier is in active use in the Indian Navy. The Sea Harrier saw action in war again when it was deployed in the 1992â1995 conflict in Bosnia. It was used again in the 1999 NATO campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in Operation Allied Force; Sea Harriers which operated from HMS Invincible frequently patrolled the airspace to keep Yugoslavian Mig on the ground. The Sea Harrier FA2 featured the Blue Vixen radar, which was described as one of the most advanced pulse Doppler radar systems. The Sea Harrier FA2 also carried the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile, the first UK aircraft to be provided with this capability. An upgraded model of the Pegasus engine, the Pegasus Mk 106, was used in the Sea Harrier FA2; in response

To the threat of radar-based anti aircraft weapons electronic countermeasures were added. Other improvements included an increase to the air-to-air weapons load, look-down radar, increased range, and improved cockpit displays.
