The Harrier, informally referred to as the Jump Jet, is a family of military jet aircraft capable of vertical/short takeoff and landing operations.

Later the design was adapted for use from aircraft carriers. The Harrier is also subsonic, contrasting with most of the modern Western attack aircraft.
