Pre-purchase Trailer video

The AV-8B project was born in the early 1970's as an effort to address the operational inadequacies of the AV-8A first generation Harrier, aimed to dramatically improve the capabilities and performance of the early AV-8A's. The AV-8B made its maiden flight in November 1981 and entered service with the United States Marine Corps in January 1985. It later evolved into the AV-8B N/A (Night Attack) and AV-8B Harrier II Plus.

First flight of a modified AV-8B in the night attack configuration was on June 26th, 1987. Deliveries to the USMC began in September of 1989 to VMA-214 at Yuma, Arizona. Follow-up units based out of Yuma received their Night Attack AV-8Bs by the end of 1992.The AV-8B N/A variant (originally known as the AV-8D) had its first operational development in 1984 and included use of the NAVFLIR (Navigation Forward-Looking Infrared camera, consisting of a GEC-Marconi FLIR system mounted in the nose) for night operations. Additionally, GEC Cat's Eyes night vision goggles were provided to the pilot as well as a revised cockpit with color MFDs, a wider field-of-view HUD display, a color CRT digital moving map, and a complete "heads-down" operation capability. The AV-8B N/A also sports four Tracor ALE-39 countermeasures dispensers along the top of the rear fuselage, in addition to two ALE-39 dispensers along the lower rear of the fuselage. The AV-8B N/A also fields an updated version of the Rolls-Royce Pegasus 11-61 (F402-RR-408) vectored-thrust turbofan engine.

      View File AV-8B Harrier II Plus - SF2. ver.2019
      AV-8B Harrier II Plus /  Radar
      This is my humble rework of old AV-8B.
      Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) A fake pilot is needed to run this mod. 
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
       
      Around 3 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier,  and preparing  Night Attack version.  After some time, we had file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected a few things. And great skins by Killerbee.
      And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 
      So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.
      So now I am here...My standard AV-8B Harrier is already available for download same as Night Attack model. Both models recently updated,
      New cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.
      First of all...If you want to count rivets...Do not. 
      Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.
      All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down.  Generally, it is just a few skins.  If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions
      Skins and decals are made to match most of the skins from Night Attack model pack. All VMA squadrons are equipped with a mix of both NA and radar model.
      Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the Night Attack version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for a unit/year of service etc. But as always aircraft are rotating between units so its hard to track them down really.
      Big Thanks to Ravenclaw - He send me file with new ALQ-164 pod. Now it is part of the upload. 
      For some reason, I have added weapons that are present in Loadout.ini. 
      AIM-120 is specific for AV-8B via specific station code. To have proper year of apearance.
       
      Animations:
      1= canopy open - close
      4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit
      3= night vision mode - not really helping but it is there - inside and outside animation.
      ************************************************************************************
      You can exlplore ini files for some additional features like in cockpit "FLIR" feed on HUD .
      AAQ-28 can be loaded only on station number 5 and centerline - in real - centerline come to use later and some units (VMAT) also moded wiring for use on other pylons. Nut in this mod only station 5 and 4 can carry AAQ-28.
      AIM-120 can be loaded only on stations 2 and 6.
      There are two stations for Intrepid Tiger II pod. In future.
      ECM also activates RWR on digital display indicator - even if ECM pod is not loaded.
      If you have my AV-8B Harrier already  - some files are same so simply overwrite. 
      for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini

      AV-8B Harrier II Night Attack. 
      This is my humble rework of old AV-8B.
      Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) A fake pilot is needed to run this mod. 
      It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.
       
      Around 2 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier,  and preparing  Night Attack version.  After some time, we had file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected a few things. And great skins by Killerbee.
      And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 
      So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.
      So now I am here...My standard AV-8B Harrier is already available for download and now its Night Attack model.
      New cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.
      First of all...If you want to count rivets...Do not. 
      Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.
      All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down.  Generally, it is just a few skins.  If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions. Skins match VMA squadrons from early AV-8B and late AV-8B radar version. 
      Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the Night Attack version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for a unit/year of service etc. But as always aircraft are rotating between units so its hard to track them down really.
      Big Thanks to Ravenclaw - He send me file with new ALQ-164 pod. Now it is part of the upload. 
      For some reason, I have added weapons that are present in Loadout.ini. 
      Animations:
      1= canopy open - close
      4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit
      3= night vision mode - not really helping but it is there - inside and outside animation.
      ************************************************************************************
      You can exlplore ini files for some additional features like in cockpit "FLIR" feed on HUD .
      AAQ-28 can be loaded only on station number 5 and centerline - in real - centerline come to use later and some units (VMAT) also moded wiring for use on other pylons. But in this mod only station 5 and 4 can carry AAQ-28.
      There are two stations prepared for Intrepid Tiger II pod. In future. 
      ECM also activates RWR on digital display indicator - even if ECM pod is not loaded.
      If you have my AV-8B Harrier already  - some files are same so simply overwrite. I think I did not put equalizer sound file now. It is same as in previous day Harrier.
      for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini
      SoundFilexxx=xxxx
      SoundFileXXX=USMComm_1
      SoundFileXXX=Equalizer
      [Equalizer]
      Priority=NORMAL
      Looped=TRUE
      NumBuffers=2
      3DSound=TRUE
      DopplerEffect=FALSE
      MaxDist=1000.000000
      MinDist=100.000000
      InsideConeAngle=360
      OutsideConeAngle=360
      ConeOutsideVolume=100
      [USMComm_1]
      Priority=NORMAL
      3DSound=FALSE
      NumBuffers=1
      Looped=TRUE
      FrequencyControl=FALSE
