Description

The RAF's Harrier GR7, or the US Marine Corps' AV-8B represented a new generation of aircraft. Vertical take-off and landing, plus the ability to hover and reverse, make this a plane of immense power, capable of winning any argument, and here's your chance to fly it.

Fly in three imagined flash-point areas of future conflict (which are now in the past): Hong Kong 1996, the Falklands 1997 and Nord Kapp 1998. Each of these has multiple difficulty settings. Pre-flight briefings and scene-setting drags you into the action, but mission objectives and enemies change as the flights unfold due to real-time AI.
