By ChrisBVOperation 'Corporate' Sea Harrier FRS.1 Improvement Pack
This is my effort in order to improve the Royal Navy Sea Harrier FRS.1, primarily (but not necessarily) for its use with the Falklands Mod by Kesselbrut; hopefully it will make the aircraft more fun and enjoyable to fly. I have included features by other modders and community developers in order to enhance the Sea Harrier experience; credits are given to their respective creators and original ‘Readme’ files are included.
1- Ten high-resolution skins, seven of which are historically accurate for three Fleet Air Arm Naval Air Squadrons, with custom decals, particular features and even kill marks.
2- New custom pilot skin featuring accurate British kit, including Mk.36 helmet and Type P.2A oxygen mask.
3- Revised and more realistic flight model.
4- Tweaked radar performance, radar modes and displays for a more realistic feel
5- Improved sound and visual effects
5- Fly with the pros! Historical pilot names .LST file and real Falklands War veteran Harrier and Sea Harrier pilot photos.

By bobrockThe Harrier GR7 is a license-built American-designed AV-8B Harrier II fitted with RAF-specific navigation and defensive systems as well as other changes including additional underwing pylons for Sidewinder missiles. The improved design of the GR7 allows the aircraft to carry twice the load of a GR3 over the same distance or the same load twice the distance. First flight of the Harrier GR7 was in 1989, and deliveries to RAF squadrons began in 1990. A total of 96 aircraft were ordered, including 62 interim GR5s which were later modified to GR7 standard.
Detailed "readme" file included.
The TIALD pod included in this pack is meant to be used only with this plane.
Just as a reminder, maximum VERTICAL take-off and landIng weight is 18,950 lbs.
If you try to take off vertically with a full load of weapons and fuel, the plane will simply not get airborne and, if you try to land, you'll fall like a brick.
Best vertical landings are performed with a 25% fuel load or less, just experiment to find the right compromise.

This pack contains all harriers employed in the spanish navy since 1976, in nation-specific mods,
wich should work in all thirdwire sims
Includes AV-8S Matador (by wpnssgt) and AV-8B (by bobrock) in both Day Attack and Plus Versions,
in nation-specific mods
In 1976, the Spanish Navy, wich couldn´t afford to use a conventional Aircraft Carrier, became
the first navy to use Harriers operationally from a WWII CVL(USS Cabot), the AV-8S "Matador", while
the Royal Navy could still operate F-4Ks and Bucaneers from HMS Ark Royal.
After the Falklands War, the Harrier won the trust of the Spanish Navy command, wich allowed the
following models of the family to stay serving despite the cost it implicated. Such this way, the Harrier
remains in spanish service.

Add the aircraft to your objects/aircraft folder of youe SF directory. Add the weps to your objects/weapons folder. (The weapons folder is there provided you have installed the weps packs)
Add the wep data to your weapondata.ini. Follow these instructions located here at CA.
If you do not, then you only have yourself to blame for not getting the weps to show.

Just drop into your main SF directory.
It will add the plane and the engines sounds right your correct folders.
So when it asks to ovewrite say yes.
It will not overwrite anything you have just the folder names which are the same.
SHE IS NOT EASY YO FLY AND WILL GET OUT OF CONTROL ON YOU IN A HEART BEAT. DO NOT HEAVY HAND HER OR SHE WILL FLIP OUT OF CONTROL.
Remember to map your thrust vectoring keys.
By GuestThe AV-8S is essentially an AV-8A with minor modifications for service in the Spanish Navy.
By GuestIn 1983 the Indian Navy received the first of 24 Sea Harriers essentially similar to the FRS.1. 19 remain in service today.
By GuestThe FRS.2 is the ultimate expression of the versatile and deadly Harrier family in British service.

By rhugouviThis mod is just a shameless .ini tweak in order to adaptat the vector-thrust mod developped for the AV-8C to previously released Harriers (FRS1 and FRS2).
It should be regarded as a *temporary mod*, so that you can improve your vertical landing skills on Royal Navy's carriers while waiting for "real" updated Harrier add-ons.
I have just deleted the motor and overeffective flaps sections in SeaHarrier_DATA.INI and HarrierFRS2_DATA.INI, in order to add the new motor and nozzles of the AV-8C. Nothing else has been edited, the Flight Model remains unchanged.
So, all credit is due to the different teams involved in the AV-8C, FRS1 and FRS2 add-ons, namely and in no particular order:
By rhugouviHi all!
This pack is the follow-up of the adaptation of the VT model from the AV-8C to existing Harrier.
.ini files are included to mod the FRS51 and AV-8 add-ons available at checksix-fr.com and column5.us.
The AV-8C is of course available here at CombatAce.
Thanks once more to the real authors of the "Beasts"...
