A unique flight model has been developed for this aircraft which allows highly realistic simulation of the vertical takeoff and landing VTOL characteristics of the Harrier. Even the famous “airshow bow” can be replicated! Like the real Harrier, an "autoSTOL" lever has been added. It pre-sets the nozzles to a predetermined angle for an automatic selection of different settings: VTOL, VSTOL STOL and conventional takeoff and landing. No longer do the pilots have to select a setting for the nozzles (although they can if they wish). This brings incredible maneuverability, just like the real thing! VTOL, STOL and conventional flights can be carried out with complete authenticity thanks to brand new programming technology replicating the exact auto nozzle/flap settings. No other simulation technique can replicate this as accurately! The flight dynamics are true to type and require skill to master. This Harrier simulation is demanding yet very rewarding! An authentic sound set is included. Special effects include exhaust smoke which changes with nozzle position and ground effect effects to make the visuals highly realistic. Cannon gun effect, fireable from the cockpit, for the ADEN cannon pods.
