Default AV-8B+

Current AV-8B modeled is quite limited in its abilities. No true AA ability, pretty much just bounce a few mavericks around and show off the vertical landing stunts. Quite hard to make a decent campaign that's not boring. Just wonder if RAZBAM can get us AV-8B+ instead?

Pretty sure it is planned, they chose to do the NA variant because they are still waiting for ED to get their ground radar implemented so RAZBAM can use it in their modules. It will probably not be a freebie like the MiG-19S though.

It would be great to have a more advanced version included in a new module, but current version should be finished first.

Testify!

I too would love the AV-8B Harrier II+ with radar but please oh please finish the Night Attack variant first.

Try a search, has been discussed before.
I believe it was suggested as being very viable, but dependant upon ED completing development of the radar for the F18, which is nothing like close to being done.

Yeah I think alot of people would like to see the + model, but it needs the radar done by ED first. I "think" in terms of interior modeling the cockpit should be the same, and exterior is close? So it may not be that hard to do.

Actually I think alot more people want the Original Sea Harrier, circa '82. But thats just a guess and that would be a whole new plane. Albeit they could probably recycle some of the FM and how they got it to work for the current harrier.

For what is worth, I would prefer the AV8B+
