Diecast Aircraft Information  Diecast Aircraft Information MetalWings Diecast Aircraft Reference by Dauntless Aviation

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 defence 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.


“Operation Herrick” was the British name for their participation in the NATO International Security
Assistance Force (ISAF) that took place in Afghanistan from 2002 to 2014 with Harriers joining the
operation in 2004 until 2010. The Harriers from the RAF and the RN Fleet Air Arm combined to
form Joint Force Harrier (JFH) and flew in pairs in support of British ground forces as well as
other NATO troops. Harrier GR7A ZD404 was named Lucy after a morale boosting visit from The
Sun tabloid Page 3 models Lucy Pinder and Michelle Marsh.
