AV-8B Harrier II (DC Designs)

Publisher’s Info

DC Designs are proud to announce their first vertical take-off aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator - the AV-8B Harrier II!
This fully native MSFS aircraft features all three modern Harrier variants - AV-8B, AV-8B Plus and GR9.
The Harrier has been coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator native 'Model Behaviors' animations and built to MSFS SDK specifications to minimise issues.
The DC Designs Harrier includes a brand-new, custom-coded vertical take-off and landing system built specifically for MSFS without the need for WASM gauges. VTOL in the Harrier respects both realistic aircraft aerodynamics and enviromental factors such as ambient wind, requiring good stick and throttle skills to control.
Other features include authentic night lighting which includes user-operated 'slime lights' for combat operations and custom-coded animations, stores selection page and up-to-date special effects. The Harrier is also fully compliant with Virtual Reality headsets.
