The Harrier is amongst the most recognized and loved postwar British-designed military aircraft ever produced, and this book, the first of two volumes dealing with the type, covers the color schemes and markings applied to the design from the prototype and development P.1127/Kestrel airframes of the early 1960s and in to its service use with the RAF as the GR.1/GR.3 and T.2/T.4, the Fleet Air Arm as the Sea Harrier FRS.1 and the upgraded F/A.2, US Marine Corps AV-8A, Spanish Navy ‘Matador’, Indian Navy FRS.51 and Thai Navy navalized Harriers. Coverage of the original ‘tin wing’ versions is taken right up to 2000 with hundreds of full color profiles and 4-views, with detailed and informative captions.
