The Sea Harrier FA2 carries the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile and was the first UK aircraft to be provided with this capability. The first operational deployment was in April 1994 as part of the UN force in Bosnia when it was often called in by troops on the ground for air support. One FA2 was lost over Bosnia in 1994 when it was struck by a surface to air missile (SAM) while attempting to bomb two Serbian tanks. The pilot, Lt Nick Richardson, ejected succesfully and evaded capture with the aid of friendly local forces.

Deployed on all three of the Royal Navy's aircraft carriers the Sea Harrier was the Navy's primary air asset and the FA2 proved to be a worthy successor to the FRS.1 that was so effectively deployed in the Falklands campaign. The FA2 proved to be a capable and effective warplane, especially in the air to ground role, up until its retirement and replacement by Harrier GR7/9s in 2006.
