For the Royal Navy were cancelled, apparently ending the Royal Navy's involvement in fixed-wing carrier aviation.However, beginning in the early 1970s. The first of a new class of "through deck cruisers" was planned, carefully named to avoid the term "aircraft carrier" to increase the chances of funding. These ships would eventually become the Invincible class. With little modification, a'ski-jump' was added to the end of the 170 m deck, the carriers could operate a small number of STOVL jets.
Had entered service in April 1969. In 1975 the Royal Navy ordered 34 Sea Harrier FRS. 1 s, the first of which entered service in 1978.1s were delivered between 1978 and 1988. 1 was largely based on the Harrier GR. 3, but was modified to have a "bubble" canopy (to give better visiblity for the air defence role) and an extended forward fuselage to accommodate the Ferranti. (now BAE Systems) Blue Fox radar. The Sea Harriers and HMS Invincible.
Were operational during the Falklands War. Harriers also operated from the flagship of the taskforce, HMS Hermes.The Sea Harriers were to operate in their primary air defence role, with the RAF Harrier GR. 3 expected to act as attrition replacements for the Sea Harriers. However the Sea Harriers claimed 21 kills with no losses in air combat (two were lost to ground fire and four in accidents) and the RAF fleet was free to operate in their primary ground attack role. The dominance of the Sea Harrier over the theoretically equal or superior Argentinian Mirage III. It should be noted that the disparity in figures, with the Argentinian fighters failing to shoot down a single Sea Harrier, can arguably be attributed to a number of factors. The Argentinian planes were operating at the extent of their range with little fuel for dogfights while the Sea Harrier possessed extreme manouverability and employed the latest AIM-9L Sidewinder. Missiles and the almost unparalleled (at the time) Blue Fox radar. Additionally, the British pilots had unarguably superior combat air training and were frequently provided with fighter control by warships in San Carlos Water. The Sea Harriers had limited fuel reserves themselves due the tactical decision to station the British carriers out of Exocet missile. Range and the dispersal of the fleet Although an Argentine aircraft could only allow 5 minutes over the islands to search and attack an objective and without any capable air-to-air missile, a Sea Harrier could stay near to 30 minutes waiting in the Argentine approach corridors. As the only aerial defence, the Sea Harriers were both greatly outnumbered by the available Argentinian aircraft and were decoyed away by the activities of the Escuadrón Fénix. Of civilian jet aircraft used by the Argentine Air Force. They had to operate without a fleet early warning systems such as AWACS.
That would have been available to a full NATO fleet in which the Royal Navy had expected to operate. As a result they couldn't establish complete air superiority and prevent Argentine attacks during day or night nor stop the daily flights of C-130 Hercules.Yet the conflict was a resounding vindication of the Sea Harrier's abilities: aside from their 100% record in air to air combat, no other fixed-wing carrier fighter in history could have taken off from a carrier in the extreme conditions in the South Atlantic in which the Sea Harriers operated.
