Ahh, the Harrier. It’s an aircraft that I’ve always had a lot of time for despite not being a major fan of military hardware. From a technical perspective though it’s absolutely brilliant and this mod does a spectacular job of recognizing that and putting it forward eloquently. I was really impressed with the way that this handles itself, giving you some brilliant design features that really make it easy to fly around with.

However, the original model has to be downloaded here. It’s made by the wonderful Kaunori Ito and it does the Harrier great justice, especially in older simulators. This package just gives you some nice new textures and liveries that look great, giving you a fresh range of paints and designs that can help to sell the image and overall enjoyment of the aircraft.

One thing that really impressed me about this, however, was the introduction of the smaller details on each livery. They all have specific markings and add-ons that make them distinct from one another. For me this made each livery worth using for hours, and given that the original model itself is one of my favorites out there for FS2004 I really enjoyed picking this up and messing around with it.

It’s a great design for a Harrier and does a good job of selling the aircrafts positive points without flat-out hiding its weak points. The model itself is very hard to manage I found, but that’s what you would expect from a military jump-jet!

The most impressive aspect for me was just how well it all works out together. Each part of this mod has been changed, upgraded and improved multiple times to make sure it looks the part even in a slightly older simulator. For any Harrier fans, these skins are a must-have.

great graphics, terrible sudden transition from conventional flight with first step of nozzle downward rotation, uncontrollable hover. Normal flight OK.

The download was fast and uncomplicated (DSL here). Unzipped w/ WinZip quick and painless. Subject thought; For a novice - a file as to how & where to install the file into FS could be considered benefical, providing the newbie with that warm fuzzy feeling of support.
