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. 3 Squadron was formed on May 13, 1912 and was the first RAF squadron to
receive the new flying machines. The squadron’s first encounter with the Harrier was in
early 1970 when they received GR.1’s. In 1977 No.3 Squadron were stationed at RAF
Station Gütersloh, West Germany where they acquired the GR. 3 and the GR. 5. In 1992
No. 3 Squadron moved to RAF Station Laarburch, on the German border with the
Netherlands, now flying the GR.7 Harrier. In 1997 they returned to RAF Station
Cottesmore.
