The Harrier

The BAE Systems Harrier was taken out of service by the current government in December 2010. It had acquitted itself superbly in Iraq and Afghanistan and was withdrawn from service in favour of the Tornado. It was also at the highest state of technology, updated in the last two years and these upgrades were passed to the US, who bought the UK airframes ‘for spares’.
