AV-8 Italy HarrierItem Number: C1084
AV-8 Harrier Italian Navy model airplane. The Italian Navy used the AV-8B Harrier as a single-seat, light attack aircraft to provide offensive air support. By virtue of its Vertical/Short Take-Off or Landing (V/STOL) capability, the AV-8B can operate from a variety of amphibious ships, rapidly constructed expeditionary airfields, forward sites (e.g., roads), and damaged conventional airfields. This makes the aircraft particularly well-suited for providing dedicated close air support.
