Hi Razbam,

I am loving your updates and as an ex Harrier Force member, I am seriously looking forward to this aircraft release.

I was disappointed that you were unable to release a GR9 variant but I hope you will provide us with an excellent 1Sqn skin as I am considering the potential of creating a RAF campaign once she is released. Thanks again.

I got to ask why was this done? Why the promotion of the Harrier, (Or any military jet, or heck any airplane even) in a Pepsi commercial? Or is this one of those the 70's/80's were a strange time...

I'm still so happy to have such a unique aircraft coming to DCS

It was actually done in humor and Pepsi never thought someone would be able to acquire 7 million Pepsi points during the promotional period... until someone did...

Love this last part.

The court also added this gem of a reason in its dismissal of the case: "The callow youth featured in the commercial is a highly improbable pilot, one who could barely be trusted with the keys to his parents' car, much less the prize aircraft of the United States Marine Corps."


So many DCS pilots would easily be in that cat ...lol.

That is funny, during WW II they had no problems sending "callow youth" into combat and trust them with their prize war machinery...

Being trusted with a commercial Airliner seem to not require old age as well.
(https://www.pilotcareernews.com/what...airline-pilot/).

In general you can start flying training and your first solo/get a license as a teenager.
(...)"Pilots can begin training at any age and can solo balloons and gliders from age 14, and powered aircraft from age 16."(...)

And that isn't just on paper, a friend of mine from back in school, started flying gliders at the age of 13 and made his license at 16/17 (not 100% sure).

Now the military usually has an age limit for their pilot training program, an UPPER limit, usually.

So I would say the judges decision was a sorry excuse to cover Pepsi's ass, in this case.
