Point of order, the AV-8B does have a DTED library on TAMMAC-installed aircraft (~1998-2006?). This was part of AFC-470, which also allowed for mounting the LITENING on STA 2, 5, and 6 and replaced...

Yeah, understood. I just meant from a gameplay perspective, the in-game JTAC ought to be a separate entity from the A-10 and work with other CAS-capable aircraft.

There really isn't a good reason the in-game JTAC shouldn't also work with the Harrier, or Hornet for that matter.

The procedures are the same (by design, it's a NATO standard). The JTAC should...

Dmitri, neither the AGM-84 or AGM-88 are cleared for the Harrier. It lacks even a physical way to mount the weapons onto the aircraft, as they use differently spaced lugs than the Harrier pylons have.

I guess what I'm getting at is removing it from the product page might be jumping the gun a bit then, if it's still a planned feature and just isn't here yet.

JDAM can be employed from BRU-70/A DITERs (tested and introduced ca. 2015) or as singles from BRU-36/As.
