Jet fighters of all models have been commissioned and decommissioned over the course of history, but there was one that stood the test of time into the late 21st Century: the Hawker-Siddeley Harrier. Still in use in the year 2084, the Harrier was one of the only machines that the human race could utilize to battle the extra-terrestrial civilization known as the Daggra. Due to the fact that the remaining humans were forced to take shelter in the mountains of Tibet, a problem would arise for most aircraft, due to the inadequate environment for takeoff and landing. The Hawker-Siddeley Harrier, however, was the perfect fighter plane for this situation. Able to takeoff and land in the mountains with ease, due to its unique hovering ability, it was ultimately the best and only choice humanity had for combating the technologically superior spacecraft of the enemy Daggra race.
