Yeah man, vertical landing in a harrier is by far the hairiest thing I ever done in a simulated aircraft. Unlike a helicopter you have almost no power reserve. It’s also unstable and squirrely as hell, despite all the Stability Augmentation Systems. Fun times. (Day) Carrier traps in the hornet are easy joyrides compared to this.
Actually the zuni’s are mad accurate in the harrier. I can zap things with single shots with those. It’s the hydras that go all over the place. Big salvoes and a cluster bomb effect are obviously the way to do hydra.
It’s odd that rockets differ so much between aircraft. In the hornet the hydras are far less hilarious and its impossible to do the single shot zap with the zunis. odd. like they do not share the same weapon files.
