- Harrier II
The AV-8B Harrier II can only be deployed by Tarawa class aircraft carriers. For all intents and purposes, Harriers perform as helicopters.
The Harriers act as a short-range support aircraft and are particularly useful for ground attacks on tanks and troop concentrations, but they are relatively effective against buildings.
Each Harrier is armed with one cruise missile for attacking enemy ships. It has unlimited anti-tank missiles, however it must return to its carrier to rearm the cruise missile.
Orders the Harrier II to immediately return to its parent LHA-1 Tarawa.
