The Harrier GR9 comes equipped for action with the Integrated Weapons Program. It's an extensive avionics and weapons upgrade package that allows the GR9 to carry the latest smart weapons, inertial navigation systems, Sniper targeting pods and INS/GPS navigation systems. The Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm retired the aircraft in November 2010, when the GR9 made its last-ever flight from the H.M.S. Ark Royal (R07). The RAF plans to retire the Harrier in March, 2011, replacing it with the F-35C and the Eurofighter Typhoon. This limited edition kit comes packaged with new intake parts.
