Exhibit - Harrier Jump Jet 2002
RAF Mission 7
No Safe HavenIt is still the first day of the invasion and there is no let-up in the enemy air attacks. This time, a trio of Mirage Daggers are inbound and will try to sink ships in the crowded anchorage of San Carlos Water.
Your flight of GR.3 Harriers must shoot down at least two these attackers, preferably before they can drop their bombs.
You will approach the enemy jets from the rear, but these are fast aircraft and will not linger in the area as they need to conserve their fuel - your timing will be critical.
Labels on shows the target 2745 feet away, about 1/2 a mile.
Using " chase view " to see what he's doing.
Gun camera shows him flashing past at 191 feet range !

My diaryOK - this is getting ridiculous. I like a challenge as much as anyone but really ! This is liking flying in a bowl of porridge, and if you touch the bottom of the bowl you're dead.
The trouble is you don't see the bottom of the bowl until 0.0005 seconds before impact!
Anyway, by using Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2's "targetting aids" I was able to score one kill.
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.
