About the Design
The P.1214 was one of several Hawker proposals for the supersonic Harrier II. Distinguished by its forward-swept wings and double-boom "flying squirrel"-like body (to keep exhaust away from control surfaces), the design also featured afterburning PCB Pegasus engines.
The P.1214 was ultimately rejected in favor of the far more conventional GR5, which was based on the original 1950s-era design.
