The Sea Harrier, designed for the British Royal Navy, is an evolution of the Harrier fighter-bomber conceived for the RAF that came into service in the 1970s. The first aircraft with vertical take-off/landing capability, it can operate even where there is little room for manoeuvre and is thus ideal for close troop support.The Sea Harrier is also an excellent dogfighter as seen during the Falklands conflict where this unusual plane scored numerous victories against the Argentine air force. The Wessex is a British evolution of the United States Helicopter H-34. It was developed for the Royal Navy towards the late fifties to create a modern anti-submarine aircraft. In the following years other transport and support variants for the RAF and the Royal Marines were built. Theywere used in all conflicts: Malaysia, Aden, the Falklands War and Northern Ireland.
