Are you a secret arms dealer to know so much?*The last British Harrier flew in 2011. The new aircraft carriers carry the F35B Lightning. It is also capable of landing vertically.

Maybe I'm just a silly billy who call then harrier carriers.

The new carriers are HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, they are about three times the size of the little harrier carriers.
Here’s a photo of Illustrious waiting to be scrapped alongside Queen Elizabeth as it was being completed, shows the size difference quite well.
