Harrier T.4(N) cockpit

Recommended Posts

Despite having a number of Harrier books none contain photos of the T.4(N) cockpit. To be more specific I’m not sure if the moving map display was retained in the front cockpit. What FRS.1 instrumentation was added in terms of the instrument panels?

Yes, the moving map was still fitted. From memory there wasn't much in the way of FRS-1 equipment fitted as they were purely used to train pilots to fly the Sea Harrier. The radar systems etc were fitted to Hunter T-8M's in which the pilots learned to fight. Only when they got into the SHAR did they combine the two disciplines.

Thanks for that, just spoken to someone who worked on them and said the same thing - In fact he said at times the map was constantly moving even when on terra firma!

Aircraft cockpit had been partially gutted at this point.
