It was first mentioned when Rhonda Snord embarked on Operation Merlin, her quest to discover the ancient Camelot Command base, in July 3051. On this mission, the Harrier carried three DropShips (the Eagle's Bane, Junk Yard II and Scavenger) which is therefore its established minimum hardpoint capacity. Upon discovery of Camelot Command, the Harrier was sent back to inform the Federated Commonwealth of the find while Ronda Snord and her unit remained to claim the base.
The Harrier would go on to serve the Irregulars until at least 3067, where it was noted that the Harrier could carry the entire unit's combat and support assets to missions abroad on several DropShips.
