Six Harrier détruits le 12 sept. 2012 dans la province du Helmand en Afghanistan

The violence ended after coalition troops killed all but one of the attackers. The lone survivor was wounded and taken into custody, ISAF said.
Eight coalition military personnel and one civilian contractor were also wounded.

The insurgents inflicted considerable damage around the base, including destroying six AV-8B Harrier jets and damaging two others. Six aircraft hangers suffered damage, while six refueling stations were destroyed.

Heureusement que les Marines ont racheté d’occasion les 74 Harriers retirés du service au Royaume Uni car ils doivent encore attendre le tournant des années 2020 pour la mise en service du nouveau F-35-B
