  1. License: CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 Version 1.0.0 https://spacedock.info/mod/2863/Harrier Jump Jet Parts Pack A Harrier parts pack that provides everything but the landing gear and the hinges for under the wings, to build a Harrier Jump Jet. BREAKING GROUND IS NEEDED FOR THE ROTATING VTOL ENGINES. As I can't build complex internals yet, it uses a slightly modified Harrier IVA from Cold War Aerospace and the license reflects that. Prebuilt craft within the SPH folder that is in the main folder. SORRY, FORGOT TO MENTION. THE COCKPIT,TAIL AND WINGTIPS ALL HAVE BUILTIN RCS AND THE COCKPIT CREATES MONOPROPELLANT TO KEEP THEM TOPPED UP. Gear, Toggle wing wheel hinges. 1,Toggle engines on/off. 2,Toggle transition from vertical to forward thrust. 5,Toggle ladders. EVA is right side. 6,Toggle hinge lock for wing wheels. Custom 1, Adjust thrust limit of front engines for a bit more forward thrust, just make sure to revert them to 45 for hovering and landing VTOL. These are cruise engines and have a spool time, so make sure you adjust ahead of time and let them catch up or you will have a very hard landing. Over 2 thirds throttle to take off and then as soon as you do drop it just under 2 thirds and tilt the nose down 5 degrees to get forward momentum before transitioning.

  4. McDonnell-Douglas AV-8B Harrier II The AV-8B Harrier II was a continuation by McDonnell Douglas (later Boeing) of the less successful Hawker Siddley Harrier. The original Harrier was a technological marvel but a military failure. It had less range and less payload than the A-4 Skyhawk that it was designed to replace. The McDonnell redesign replaced the engine with an improved Pegasus engine, redone cockpit avionics, and added night attack capabilities. The AV-8B retained the advantages of the original Harrier, most importantly its S/VTOL capability. This distinctive feature is afforded by the four swiveling lift jets which redirect the exhaust from the Pegasus engine. This flexibility makes the Harrier an extremely useful aircraft, especially for the Marine Corps. In the Gulf War, they proved invaluable, with their ability to support ground troops in roles where conventional aircraft couldn't. Additionally, Harriers often operate on smaller aircraft carriers alongside attack helicopters. This allows them to operate much closer to land than conventional fixed wing airplanes, which need to take off from large carriers far offshore. This is a rebuild of my previous AV-8B (https://kerbalx.com/servo/AV-8B-Harrier), and features a rebuild of the swiveling jets, as well as a much more accurate exterior. As usual, the jets use airbrakes to move the engines (3x Juno each) 90 degrees, where they dock to allow throttle control while hovering. The hinge is a pair of RCS balls inside a cage of solar panels, allowing smooth transitions between vertical and horizontal flight. This Harrier is quite fun to fly. I increased the number of engines to 12, nearly doubling the top speed, and allowing the Harrier to hover at 60% power. Use action groups 1 and 2 to toggle between lift modes. For vertical takeoff, throttle to full and wait until you have ~100m altitude and 40m/s horizontal velocity. Then switch to horizontal flight. Wait for the engines to redock, and throttle back to 100%. This Harrier is a little different than most other VTOLs to learn, but with a little practice, it's an extremely fun plane to fly.

  5. Here it is, an updated version for 1.05. This is a very capable and destructive ground attack aircraft! I decided to use Wheesley engines for this version as they don't have any engine wash and that allows me to hide them inside the craft and mount the rear ones in a more realistic fashion. It also means there is no jet wash to capsize any carriers you wish to land on. I decided against Juno's as they seem too weak and I can't rotate them stock anyway. Here's a quick video of its destructive power: Stock version = 97 parts and 20.1 tons BD Armoury version = 119 parts and 21.6 tons Hotkeys 1) Toggle rear engines 2) Toggle VTOL engines 3) Toggle reverse mode for rear engines 9) Toggle ladder 0) Toggle cockpit light The VTOL engine thrust is quite powerful as I wanted the jet to be able to carry heavy BD Armoury loads if needed and I would recommend not exceeding +/- vertical speed of 25 m/s or the aerodynamics of the plane will overwhelm the jets SAS. Hover throttle is about 1 click below 2/3rds. To transition from full horizontal flight to horizontal landing I would recommend flying low to the ground, setting throttle to 2/3rds, press hotkeys 2 and 3 to activate VTOL engines and thrust reverse and engage gear and air brakes. When your speed drops to 20 m/s press hotkeys 1 and 3 and land as desired. This is demonstrated in the video. The jet also rolls a bit when yawing at high speed due to the jets high COM but it is easy to compensate for.

  6. I present to you, my VTOL-capable replica of the RAF's BAE Harrier. Very stable and easy to fly as a regular aircraft and in VTOL mode. Action Groups: 1. Toggle forward-thrust engines 2. Toggle VTOL engine 3. Toggle flaps/airbrakes 4. Toggle ladder Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w1at5z9l3k8x67u/BAE%20HARRIER.craft?dl=0 Enjoy!
