Description official descriptions
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.

Harrier Jump Jet is a very detailed flight simulator of the RAF's Harrier GR7 and the US Marine Corps' AV-8B using a - for its time - very innovative gouraud shading technology to create more realistic looking objects and landscapes. With excellent graphics, flight dynamics, and campaign options, Harrier Jump Jet is highly recommended to all armchair pilots, and especially to fans of Digital Integration's Tornado.
It is not realistic by todays standards and you may find not much difference from one mission to another.
The Bottom Line
One of MicroProse's most overlooked flight sim. Developed by the UK division of MicroProse, Harrier Jump Jet is a great addition to the company's long list of classic flight-sims. It may not be as realistic as Simis' Super-VGA Harrier, but it's hell of a lot of fun to fly.
