Mastercraft Collection: Sea Harrier FA2..
Wingspan: 6.5 inches
Length: 12 inches
The Sea Harrier FA2 was one of the products of modern avionics with the first prototype flown in 1988. Designed for pre-emptive attacks through the use of long-range weaponry, the FA2 could seek out threats in the battlefield and destroy them before being fired upon. To fulfill this role, the aircraft was naturally given quite the selection of missiles. Mounted on rail launchers are the HarrierŐs five missile types, namely: the (1) Raytheon AIM-120A AMRAAM and the (2) AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, the (3) Lockheed/Raytheon Sidewinder, the (4) MBDA Sea Eagle anti-ship missile, and the (5) MBDA ALARM anti-radiation missile. The aircraft was powered by the Rolls-Royce Pegasus mk104 (some units were equipped with the mk106) turbofan engine.
