An AWACS plane will notify you of enemy bogies in the area. Inthe center of the cockpit, below the HUD display is a black box.During combat, a phrase such as "10 OC H" may appearhere. This is an AWACS warning that indicates that an enemy aircraftis approaching from "10 O'Clock High".

Enemy aircraft are hard to spot at combat speeds. Select the AIM9missile before the enemy is engaged. While searching for otheraircraft, the missile will make a humming sound when it locatesthe enemy. Fire the missile when a red circle appears in the HUD.

Experiment with weapon payloads on targets. The Hydra rocket isthe best overall weapon to stock.

SAM sites that appear in later missions can be deadly. Minimizetheir threat by first attacking with a set of HARM missiles todestroy the SAMs. Then, follow-up with a second attack using Mavericksand Hydras. When attacking SAM sites in Fast Mode, the chanceof enemy SAM missiles hitting your aircraft is reduced by approximately75%; however, enemy Sidewinder missiles will still pose a seriousthreat.

Make use of the terrain when attacking targets. Mountains willshield your aircraft from enemy radar.

Your aircraft can easily be attacked by five enemy aircraft onany mission. Use the AIM9 missile to counter this threat.

The enemy C130 aircraft must be acquired visually and will notpresent a AIM9 lock. Use the cannon to bring it down.

Use caution when landing on Auto Pilot. Enemy aircraft will oftenfollow your plane and attempt to shoot it down as it lands. Ifenemy aircraft are spotted trailing your aircraft, circle yourfleet a few times and let the Navy gunners take out the enemy.

  • Dive to increase speed and climb to decrease speed.
  • Once proficiency is achieved with the nozzle jet control, the Harrier may be stopped quickly in mid-air and hover.
  • Do not attempt drastic turns at a low attitude.
  • Do not reduce the throttle to below 75% in order to have power available for evasive maneuvers.
  • Use the Auto Pilot if the aircraft is out of control or has trouble flying.
  • Keep watching the plane's radar system for valuable information.
  • Always eject before crashing.

Save a game as "BRICKMODE". From now on you can activate invincibility by pressing L + R.

Taking off

Always let your wingman take off first in order toavoid a collision. It is best to be at zero throttle when startingon the carrier deck. Turn off the wheel brakes, then hit fullthrottle. After pulling up from the flight deck, reduce drag byretracting the landing gear.
