There are three main joint forces within the UK which the Royal Navy is involved with; Joint Rapid Reaction Forces, Joint Force Harrier and Joint Helicopter Command.

  • The UK's Joint Rapid Reaction Forces pool resources from the three services to provide hard-hitting, flexible and mobile forces wherever they may be needed.
  • The joint operation of Royal Navy and Royal Air Force Harriers from Invincible Class Carriers was successfully implemented during the Gulf War in 1991.
  • The Joint Helicopter Command provides a joint command to the three service's battlefield helicopters.
