Harrier Multirole VTOL

design by Nick Bradbeer


The Harrier is the utility aircraft of the Cyrinia Air Force. ( For more information on Cyrinia, see the Korinall Cluster (PERI0013) on the PERI page.) Capable of attack and air defence missions, two of the squadrons are flown off the Navy's two aircraft carriers, while the other two fly out of conventional land bases.

In a war scenario, the carriers would be used as strike-extending staging areas, while the land-based aircraft would move off their bases and operate from clearings, stretches of road and similar dispersed sites.
