On November 18, 1988 AV-8B 163662 was delivered to USMC VMA-542 “Tigers” as B-137 and in 1990 it was transferred to VMA-231 ‘Ace of Spades’. In 1991 the squadron deployed to Saudi Arabia. AV-8B 163662 belonged to the VMA-231 CO Lt. Col. ‘Rusty’ Jones. By the end of ODS 163662 had flown 54 combat sorties and returned to MCAS Cherry Point in March 1991. There each aircraft received mission markings and two lines in Arabic ‘Free Kuwait’ on the port side. In 2002 163662 parts were used to create AV-8B Harrier II+ 165586.

The first Harrier II was the AV-8B. In 1984 development of the AV-8B(NA) Night Attack Harriet II began with the addition of a NAVFLIR (Navigation Forward-Looking Infrared) camera in the nose along with night vision goggles. New multi-function displays were added as well as an improved heads-up display, color CRT display, and complete heads-down capability. This Harrier version also received additional counter-measure dispensers and Rolls-Royce Pegasus 11-61 vectored thrust turbofan engine.
