USMC Harriers in Grenada 1983?

Recommended Posts

So, anyone know If there were any Harrier unit involved in the 1983 invasion of Grenada? If yes, which unit, Harrier variant and camo? If not, in 1983 the USMc was still using the Old AV-8C? with the green/grey camo?

Anyone have info for that operation?

Well, i will resume from what i have :)

No harrier were used by the USMC, only helo's.

The marines used CH-46E from HMM-261 along with some AH-1T.

The Navy provided the air cover with the Air Wing Six - USS Independence : A-7E (VA-15 and VA-87), F-14 (VF14 and VF-32), A-6E (VA-176), EA-6B (VAQ-131) and S-3A (VS-28). 

The Navy used also some C-9B from both reserve unit for SEAL transport and evacuation duty.

The Army used also some helo (OH-58C, OH-6A and 500MD).

USAF used C-130E, C-130H, C-141B and C-5A, AC-130H, EC-130E, MC-130E, KC-10A

Hope that will help!
