Harrier can take off from ground.


Recommended Posts

Ive noticed the harrier can take off from the ground, like a helicopter.. Does anyone know if there are requirements to enable a player to refuel from a road side base/farp?

Ie do i need a fueler and something, and something else ?

Ive just checked in the mission editor, as long as the weight is under 20500 it does a little shuffle forward, then takes off vertical, then into forward flight at about 150ft high.

 

Any reason why it wont land on the ground though?

The Harrier, can take off or land, on the ground, vertically or with a run, without any mod.

You can take off vertically, at about 23,500 lb and land vertically at about 21,500 lb on the ground.

 

 

The unique Harrier. :thumbup:

Sorry guys, what i mean-

 

I make a mission where im on the ground. Literally in the middle of a field far far away.

 

Can i refuel?

What statics? Or ground units would i need, to enable me to refuel from that point?

Also, what happens to my wingman?

And how do i have him set down in that field with me?

 

Many thanks..

You require a FARP object, FARP fuel/tanker and FARP Ammo, M818 etc. not sure about the exact units required for what. You are required to be "on"/touching the FARP object (may have changed in one of the last patches. Need to check).

Okay, ill have a look and try a few things out, What about the AI, how do i get them to land on the 'Road side FARP'?

There is a very good FARP mod by Suntsag that requires no ground units or anything - just place one of his FARP objects and you got a fully functioning FARP.

 

They are very compact and sit at ground level and they come in a few different sizes. I use them all the time now as I like them much more than the default FARPs in DCS.

To see what ground units are required to enable various FARP services on default FARPs, look in the "DCS User Manual EN 2020.pdf" which is in the "Doc" folder in your DCS install. Pages 308 and 309.

Really appreciate the interest, i can get the harrier loaded in a mission and have the AI take off from the ground no problem, but i cant have the Harrier AI land..

Im looking for the answer to that if you can..

Many thanks..

Thanks for all those informations, great mod must say!

Hopefully we see some time in the future these capabilities from the ED so everyone can share these capabilities without extra mod installing.

Another good trick is put thr FARP and required items beside a flat long road! Wollagh you have a suitable short strip to takeoff with weapons. I'm a real life pilot and have landed / taken off in some RL spots that have amazed me haha! Trick is minimise the risk as much as you can and be prepared to Abort or Go Around!

Hi Holbeach, Can you please show me the AI landing on the ground?

Many thanks..

 

 

Your inclusion of the ai wingman came after my post and as far as I know, it will land at the nearest airport, rether than vertical land with you.

You can refuel/arm at the FARP, if you are close enough. 150 mtr.
