THE design concept of the Harrier H.S.A. Type Number P.1127 arose over a few months in the summer and autumn of 1957 in studies by the Project Office at Hawker Aircraft Ltd., KingstonuponThames. These studies were aimed at evolving a lightweight VS.T.O.L. Vertical and Short Take Off and Landing...
THE engineering of the Harrier has been directed to maximising its effectiveness in the three operational aspects that are fundamentally necessary to its existence. These are
TO an extent so far unequalled, the engineering of the Harrier has reconciled the aerodynamic, propulsive, structural and controllability conflicts which have for so long denied the practical provision of satisfactory zero speed and transonic speed capabilities in a single vehicle.
THE Harrier is not only an effective VS.T.O.L. machine, it is also an efficient strike aircraft. This has only been achieved by the solution of a wider than usual range of aerodynamic problems. Solving these problems has not been made easy by the apparent incompatibility of some of the...
WITH a vertical takeoff aircraft like the Hawker Siddeley Harrier, the only ground attack reconnaissance jet VS.T.O.L. weapons system in operational service today, the air intakes have a vital influence on design and performance. At liftoff and landing they need to absorb an exceptionally large...
IN order to appreciate the development of the wing, it is necessary to understand how the basic objectives of the aircraft affect the wing, and the platform of knowledge on which the design was founded.
THERE is no doubt that the outstanding difference between the structural design philosophy of the Harrier, as compared with conventional aircraft designed for similar duties, lies in the greater importance of achieving a minimum aircraft weight. This to be achieved with no loss in the ruggedness...
