Yep, Blue Fox radar on the FRS.1 rather than Blue Vixen.

Expect AIM-9J/L (AIM-9M post-Falklands), 1000lb dumb bombs, BL.755 cluster bombs, 2in rocket pods, 30mm Aden cannon, possibly Lepus flares.

Sea Eagle is a possibility if a post Falklands SHAR is modelled as are twin rail Sidewinders increasing the load from 2 to 4. WE.177 nukes seem unlikely...

Pre-Falklands era SHARs had no defensive chaff or flares, unless Razbam model chaff stuffed behind the airbrake and released by extending it. These were added during the conflict, air dropped to the Task Force and then fitted. One other Falklands improvisation was stuffing the contents of an jammer pod into one of the Aden pods (losing a cannon) although it’s not clear they were used operationally.

Good news, but what about the Dagger or Mirage III? Falkland - Malvinas without the Argentinians?!

Great news on the Sea Harrier RAZBAM!

Awesome stuff!

Will it be capable of having the nozzle attached to conduct AAR?

In theory it should but only Razbam can confirm. They weren’t mounted that often so it should be a crew chief/loadout option.

We need a Victor to tank off though....

If I’m honest I would only want an FRS1. 1 because it’s the aircraft that saw active service in the Falklands. And 2 in my opinion it’s such a pretty jet yet the FA2 was so ugly. It’s amazing how different the changes made the two aircraft look. I’m sure the FA2 was a very capable aeroplane also having amraam capability. But I loved the old sea harrier and missed it when they went to the FA2.

You are indeed sir the bearer of bad news i was hoping for a late 80's model re the FA2 not the early 80's FRS1. I guess the hint is the falklands map, that said they are including Mt Pleasant airbase so strickly speaking we could have the FA2.

I rather suspect, if this is indeed the case re no FA2, its because the Blue Vixen radar was the base for the typhoon radar development of which obviously data is not available and the systems cannot or should be modelled.

Wow those are exciting screenshots! I didn't even know the Sea Harrier was on the radar.

Is it safe to assume this will be a brand new module and not a free addition to the AV8B?

Either way, great to see the UK getting represented a little bit better
