Exhibit - Harrier Jump Jet 2002
Argentinean Campaign Mission 04
Three's A CrowdYour orders are to bomb and strafe the three enemy ships, which are cruising offshore and shelling Stanley airfield. Two Harriers are diverted from their CAP mission to defend the vessels.
Destroy at least one Harrier by shooting it down or by drawing it into the range of your anti-aircraft guns at the airfield. Finish the mission by leaving the combat area.
Take care to avoid the AA fire from the ships.

My diaryThis mission type - attack the ships - became my favourite in this campaign. Why ?
Because of the thrill I got from screaming in at low level and repeatedly strafing the ships. The water is flying past, sounds of FLAK everywhwere, Harriers buzzing about but posing no real threat with their non-functioning AIM-9 Sidewinders.
These images were taken in Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 on my Hercules 3D Prophet III Titanium 500 video card with full screen anti-aliasing enabled.
