The GR.7 series is part of the second generation of Harriers and replaced the older GR.
3. This variant is quite similar to the American designed AV-8B but is built under license
and equipped with RAF specific navigation and defense systems and added under-wing
pylons. The GR.7 is capable of carrying twice the load of the GR.3 or the same load
twice as far. The GR.7 first flew in 1989 and entered service in 1990. Of the 96 GR.7
Harriers belonging to the RAF 62 originally were GR.5s that were upgraded to GR.7s.

RAF No. 4 Squadron was formed in 1912 as part of the Royal Flying Corps. In the spring
of 2003 they were sent as part of a 30 Harrier pool to take part in “Operation Telic”, the
British name for “Iraqi Freedom”. They were stationed at Ahmed al Jaber Air Base and
were tasked with close air support and reconnaissance duties. Another role the Harriers
were given was the destruction of Iraqi mobile Scud launchers.
