On April 2, 1982 the Argentina military invaded the Falkland Islands that they claimed as theirs and the British also claimed. The small island force was easily overwhelmed and the Argentines occupied the territory. It wasn’t long before Britain mounted a task force to retake the Islands. In April of 1982 HMS Hermes sailed from the UK as part of a 127 ship fleet consisting of 43 Royal Navy vessels, 22 from the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and 62 merchant ships. Sea Harrier FRS Mk.1 was credited with three victories and one damaged. After 74 days Britain reclaimed the Islands.Opening canopy

In 1993 an improved variant of the Sea Harrier was built as the FA.2 with a more powerful engine, improved air-to-air capabilities and weapons options. The FA.2 was produced until 1998 and continued in service until 2006 when it was replaced by the Harrier GR9. 56 FA2 Sea Harriers were produced for the Royal Navy.
