So, is the Harrier a purchasable unit or is it a call-in airstrike vehicle?

I'm guessing purchasable, since it can fly idle in circles...

Sweet. But since England also has the Goshawk, will the Harrier work as a Tier 1 unit?

I'd like to see how tough they are when I deploy Yuri's Gatling towers.

On a serious note, that harrier looks sexy.

Amongst the well known Generation 3 combat aircraft, this plane has generally been my favorite. It served for a very long time in the RAF and scored several points during the Falkland War and even during Desert Storm One. In this game (as I had mentioned earlier) it brings in that European flavor to the ECA side. However, one major short fall to this unit is how easily it is shot down by enemy fire. The advantage of flying in tight circles makes it an easy target for anti-air attacks (it cannot escape easily making it a dream for every Quad Cannon). In game play you generally end up building countless Harriers because of how easily they can be shot down due to the fact that unlike other planes that discharge their munition and retreat to their airports, the Harrier has no where to retreat to. Secondly it cannot be easily repaired like other planes due to the same issue of not being able to retreat to an airport or an air field. Just my opinion but, I think this plane should be able to return to an airport or some air field that can be built more than once or the aircraft should at least be able to land so that it can easily be repaired (probably by engineers inside IFVs)and escape from enemy fire. This may even be an opportunity to fully exploits its VTOL function of being able to take-off from anywhere. Although I love the introduction of the Goshawk....seriously love it...but an A10 is an A10 and does not sound European at all. A Tornado AD/ECR/IDE, an Update Jaguar (if you wanna kept G3 they well still used in Desert Storm One at least), Rafale, Mirage, Viggen e.t.c. But still love the Goshawk. Thanks

Description

A true classic of British aviation, the Harrier jumpjet was retired from service by the MoD in the early 21st century. Unfortunately, its intended replacement, the American F-35 Lightning, would not enter service for many years to come due to a number of safety issues and overflowing costs. Whilst the United States went on and shifted their focus to a more economical multirole version of the F-22 Raptor, many international partners of the Joint Strike Fighter programme, including the Netherlands, Italy and the United Kingdom opted out and were left with no adequate aircraft to fill the niche. Meanwhile, large parts of the Harrier fleet were sold off to the Armada EspaƱola. Ever since the creation of the European Continental Army, Spanish carrier ships formed a large portion of the task force's naval branch and provided reliable close air support with their Harriers during ECA combat operations in North Africa. It was at this time when General Cutting of the British expeditionary force worked in close coordination with Admiral Pablo Garcia during the attack on Casablanca. Ten years later, in the most desperate phase of the Russo-European War, Charles once again called upon the help of his Spanish friend, successfully repelling General Aleksandr's ill-conceived invasion of England in one of the war's bloodiest, most decisive battles. In combat, the Harrier is a deadly tank hunter thanks to its powerful Brimstone missiles that also engages both airborne and ground-based targets with a pair of 25mm cannons. Beyond that, its VTOL capabilities ensure a high level of mobility and allow the plane to fly idle in tight circles, making it less prone to sudden anti-air ambushes.
