Experience the triumph of cold war British engineering, in this Sea Harrier Flight Simulator by TeaPOT Games. Being the only commercially successful VTOL (vertical take off landing) fixed wing aircraft to date, the first iteration of Sea Harrier (Hawker Siddeley Harrier) was introduced into the Royal Air force in 1969. Initially conceived as a second strike aircraft which can be launched from a tactical environment when the airfields are destroyed by a nuclear strike, its vertical take off capabilities helped it to transform into a multitude of roles (close air support, naval air defense and reconnaissance) and was inducted into the British Royal Navy, United States Marine Corps, the Indian Navy, and several others.
The Sea Harrier played a crucial role in the Falklands War to great success with 20 kills to 1 combat loss. It also saw combat in the Gulf war, Operation Enduring Freedom(Afghanistan, 2001), Operation Odyssey Dawn (Libya, 2011), and several other humanitarian operations.
This Flight Simulator by TeaPOT Games, is extremely physics accurate, and offers the primary flight controls and functions of the Sea Harrier such as Engine power, VTOL lever, roll, pitch, yaw, landing gear, brakes, aircraft carrier take off, missile locking and firing systems. It doesn't emulate the secondary and tertiary flight controls, due to the input limitations of mobile devices. Some liberties were taken with respect to missile locking, launching, and evading aspects of the game for a more cinematic and entertaining approach but the flight controls hold true to simulation. Unlike most Flight Simulator games, Sea Harrier Flight Simulator doesn't stop simulation upon coming into contact with a crash point, it continues into a post crash simulation. The dynamic crash simulation extend even for the landing gear.
15 missions take the player through the flight controls of the Sea Harrier and advance to more complicated objectives. A free fly mode offers the player to land anywhere he/she wants.
Settings screen enables features that provide more Flight simulation options such as landing gear strength and braking power.
Hope you enjoy our Sea Harrier Flight Simulator. If you have any feedback or issues about our game, or the fidelity of simulation it offers, write to us firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be particularly interested to hear(positive or negative) from you if you have real life flying experience or experience with other flight simulation systems.
