HARRIER FA2

Picture of Harrier_FA2

The FA2 is a version of the Harrier FA2 (Sea Harrier) in service with the British Royal Navy. The aircraft is able to detect and destroy threats before the launch of an attack using long range weapon systems with look-down and shoot-down tactical capability. Its primary mission is to provide air defence for the navy carrier battle fleet particularly against low-flying attack aircraft armed with long range air-to-surface missiles. The design of the aircraft is optimised for air-to-air combat with secondary missions of surveillance and air-to-sea and air-to-ground attack. The FA2 is equipped with the AIM-120A AMRAAM (Advanced Medium Range Air-Air Missile). The AIM-9 (M and L variants) Sidewinder air-to-air missile provides the Harrier with capability for firing close range at an approaching enemy aircraft in a dog fight. The Sidewinder M and L variants have an all-aspect active optical seeker, a blast fragmentation warhead and high resistance to countermeasures.

The Sea Harrier's anti-ship missile is the Sea Eagle. The single turbofan engine isthe Rolls-Royce Pegasus Mark 104 or Mark 106 which has four rotatable cascade-type exhaust nozzles. For take-off the nozzles are initially in the fully aft position and then they are rotated partially downwards for lift off and acceleration. Viffing (vectoring in forward flight), a form of advanced combat manoeuvres developed by V/STOL pilots, is achieved by vectoring the nozzles at high speed for sudden deceleration and very tight turns. The 2,800 litres of fuel is stored in five tanks in the fuselage and two wing tanks, and provision is made for in-flight refuelling.

HELICOPTER

Helicopter is the name given to a flying machine which can raise itself vertically by means of horizontally revolving propellers or air-screws - known as a rotor. The advantages of such a machine for war puposes, enabling it to rise and land on the deck of a warship with ease, hover in the air for scouting purposes, fly low and slow for attacking ground targets and to land in small areas are so great that since at least the Great War many attempts were made to build a successful helicopter, and the first known attempt was by Leonardo da Vinci in the early 16th century.

In January 1921 Etienne Ochmichen tested a helicopter in France which offered a part solution to the problem. His helicopter with a 25 hp engine lifted 584 lbs. No attempt was made howver to provide a method for balancing or moving the forwards. Both the French and British governments experimented with helicopters in 1920 and 1921, but the problem of stability in the air alluded them. The problem faced by the early helicopter designers being that they were constrained by a need for the aircraft to be able to glide safely to ground in the event of engine failure. This problem was overcome by the discovery that disconnecting the rotor from the engine in the event of engine failure, the rotor then continuing to turn for a while and provide some degree of lift to enable an emergency landing to be made.

The first successful helicopter, the VS-300, was created in 1939 by the Russian-born American engineer Igor Sikorsky.
