First flown on the 21st August 1978, the Sea Harrier FRS1 was the Naval version of the RAF's Harrier GR3 and the first of the V/STOL fighters to see service with the Royal Navy.

The FRS-1 ("Figher, Reconnaissance, Strike") served in the Falklands War with great distinction. It mainly operated from aircraft carriers positioned within the conflict zone. Its usage in the Falklands War was its most high-profile and importance success, where it was the only fixed-wing fighter available to protect the British Task Force. The Sea Harriers shot down 20 enemy aircraft during the conflict with one loss to enemy fire. They were also used to launch ground attacks.
