Wow, that took a while! We had them on the F3 back in 2001.... ish :coolio:

Agreed.....Seems strange that they took so long to be cleared on the GR4 :shrug:

The No.41 squadron Tonkas was flight testing them back in february 2006 has their crews were talking to the F3 ones.

The Harrier would have been working with the missile on 2011 if the :shutup: hadn't taken them out of service.

Integration of ASRAAM onto the GR4 was first proposed around 98/99 as it would have effectively allowed the removal of the Sidewinder from the UK inventory. The quote from BAE to do a basic integration was prohibitive so it will have taken that long to either find money in the programme, get a sensible quote, or do the integration as a UOR (probably for Libya).
