Cheat Codes/Hints

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

Enemy aircraft are hard to spot at combat speeds. Select the AIM9 missile before the enemy is engaged. While searching for other aircraft, the missile will make a humming sound when it locates the enemy. Fire the missile when a red circle appears in the HUD.

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

SAM sites that appear in later missions can be deadly. Minimize their threat by first attacking with a set of HARM missiles to destroy the SAMs. Then, follow-up with a second attack using Mavericks and Hydras. When attacking SAM sites in Fast Mode, the chance of enemy SAM missiles hitting your aircraft is reduced by approximately 75%; however, enemy Sidewinder missiles will still pose a serious threat.

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

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

The enemy C130 aircraft must be acquired visually and will not present a AIM9 lock. Use the cannon to bring it down.

Use caution when landing on Auto Pilot. Enemy aircraft will often follow your plane and attempt to shoot it down as it lands. If enemy aircraft are spotted trailing your aircraft, circle your fleet 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.

Taking off

Always let your wingman take off first in order to avoid a collision. It is best to be at zero throttle when starting on the carrier deck. Turn off the wheel brakes, then hit full throttle. After pulling up from the flight deck, reduce drag by retracting the landing gear.

Cheat mode

Save a game under the name BRICK#MODE. Load this game, start a mission, and press LS + RS while on the carrier. The Harrier will be invincible in this mode, and can be flown anywhere. The only item on the aircraft that can be damaged is the HUD, which may disappear. Additionally, the cheat allows a total of 255 Harriers to be available for multiple ejections.
