Wessex UH.5 Sea Harrier FRS.1 Model Kit 1:72 Scale
Wessex UH.5 Sea Harrier FRS.1 Model The Italeri Wessex HU.5 & Sea Harrier FRS.1 Falklands Model Kit in 1/72 scale from theplastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life British helicopter and attack aircraft used during the Falklands War. The Wessex is a British evolution of the United States Helicopter H-34. It was developed for the Royal Navy towards the late fifties to create a modern anti-submarine aircraft. In the following years other transport and support variants for the RAF and the Royal Marines were built. They were used in all conflicts: Malaysia, Aden, the Falklands War and Northern Ireland. The Sea Harrier, designed for the British Royal Navy, is an evolution of the Harrier fighter-bomber conceived for the RAF that came into service in the 1970s. The first aircraft with vertical takeoff/ landing capability, it can operate even where there is little room for maneuver and is thus ideal for close troop support. The Sea Harrier is also an excellent dogfighter as seen during the Falklands conflict where this unusual plane scored numerous victories against the Argentine air force.
