Pretty much the main job of all 2nd generation jets, Century Series and all. And Id love to try that out, how ever useless and useful they might be. Is all relative anyway.
Remember the export version had a ground attack capability too with SNEB rockets, bombs and Matra rockets, and not forgetting a reconnaissance pack as well.

The EE Lightning is the only aircraft I would take before the F-14

The EE Lightning and its contemporaries were designed and developed before the creation of the ICBM. Their main duty was to shoot down any nuclear capable bomber before it was able to deliver its payload.

Basically their mission was: Get Out, Go There in a Hurry, Shoot Down Non-Maneuverable Target, Get Home.

GCI or AWACS were a must because their radars were basically aiming aids. After the ICBM made its entrance, many of the these interceptors started to be used for other duties like CAP and CAS.

There are some on the English Electric Lightning Facebook group, don't think that particular one is on there but there are a lot that are not available through ebay or online manual sites including a weapons manual. Most have been posted up by ex-pilots and maintainers.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/eelightning/

That manual is the Saudi Airforce Pilots Notes for the F MK.53, BAC 53-(SA)-6 Issue 2

Like all the other manuals I have seen there is no section about the Redtop missile, those are still classified, they should be coming up on the 30 year mark now and maybe a small chance to get them de-classified.

As much as i want to see more British aircraft like all the Hawker brand military types and the Buccaneer.I think Razbam is too busy right now with their other aircraft like the SuperTucano and the French Mirages along with the Migs.They still have plans for the other Harrier variants like the FRS 1 and AV-8B+ which count as British planes.

Hunter, Javelin, Buccaneer, Tornado. But I'd buy whatever they'd release.
