Great video, with lots of footage.
I wasn’t aware at all of the timeline for the Sea Harrier. Incredible that it was fielded so shortly before the Falklands War. And that serviceability, even if it is exaggerated, wow! That is shocking for a naval fighter.

The Shar was an absolute BEAST compared to other Harriers.

In retrospect, I am impressed by my immersion into the video and on-topic response.

What I thought I would have said is: “I would buy a DCS: Harrier I (Sea, or GR.1 through 3) in a heartbeat.”

I believe that the Shar is coming in the South Atlantic asset pack, perhaps initially as AI and then a module. Not that Razbam doesn’t have enough on their plate. Looking for a source atm…

I was told in the ‘Upland Goose’ that sevicability varied between the two carriers. Invincible had more experienced groundcrew who had been working on the SHAR since first introduction to the development squadron.
