The AV-8B II + is the second generation of Harriers. Using its VSTOL (Vertical and Short Take 
Off Landing) abilities the Harrier is capable of using almost any surface to attack and destroy 
air or ground targets. Armed with conventional or specific weapons the AV-8B II + can be used 
in offensive or defensive roles. Now with air-borne radar the AV-8B II + can deliver its ordnance 
day or night. The AV-8B II + can be air refueled allowing it to
be deployed for extended periods.

squadron deployed to Saudi Arabia in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. 
VMA-311 was the first Marine fixed-wing unit to arrive there as well as being the most forward

9, 1992, the Tomcats received their first Night Attack AV-8B and were formally assigned as a
