Developed in the 1960s as the first truly successful V/STOL combat aircraft, the Hawker Siddeley Harrier proved a revelation upon entering service in its earliest form, the GR/1. However, some improvements could be made & it came in the GR.3, which featured better sensors in the nose & tail, as well as a more powerful version of the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine.

The GR.3 was the first of the Harrier variants to see combat, joining operation Corporate, the re-taking of the Falkland Islands, engaging Argentine Argentine forces in ground attack missions. Replaced by the GR.5 Harrier II, the GR.3 proved itself to be a capable & successful combat aircraft.
