Sorry, I think the Harrier pilots, prior to the arrival of the mighty Phantom, may have felt they had been doing some rather sterling AD.
The problem was that they didn't do sterling AD - way too many Argies got through with the loss of SHEFFIELD ,COVENTRY, SIR GALAHAD, ARDENT, ANTELOPE and ATLANTIC CONVEYOR (plus countless lives wasted or ruined).

As Courtney says, F35B may do the job, or more likely it will be a compromise like the SHar was...
