If the Sea Harrier is in, is the AV-8 in also?

Mark, I'm no expert but weren't the AV-8 used as ground-attack and recon roles ?

But the purpose of this campaign isn't about the role these aircraft played.

I will allow them, as any version of an F-15 or F-18, like the Strike Eagle or the Super Hornet.

As far as our current campaign schedule is concerned, I think we'd be looking at a February start date unless there's a lot of interest in getting it going sooner.

Thanks John. Mostly just curiosity. I think the Marines would prefer to use them in the CAS role and use their F-18s in the air superiority role. I've got at least an F-14, F-15, F-16 and F-18 in the stash. I think I'm covered.

So just to be clear, we're back to fighters only in this campaign? The Tornado GR.1 won't qualify, right?

Just asking!

I think it would be better, but I won't make a point,
same thing goes for the F-18 and F-15, they have strike versions and Electric Combat / Reconnaissance ..
If you slap 2 or 4 AA-missiles I'm happy with it...

Hi mates, as I didn't succeed in any of the other fighter campaigns (2nd + 3rd Generation) I will try this one
At least there is a Rafale waiting in my stash
Looking forward to this campaign anyway and reporting in

Welcome Peter !

You and the Rafale are most welcome !!

So far we have a Harrier, Tornado, Eurofighter and a Rafale picked up.
I might go with a F-18 or a Mig-29 or Mig-31.

I believe I have a MiG-29 in my stash. No reason it couldn't be East German, correct?
