Jet Thunder: Falklands/Malvinas Air-to-air mission tests

Sea Harrier FRS.1 intercepting low flying A-4B Skyhawks of the coast of Peeble Island/Falklands/Malvinas islands. The radio comms between Sea Harrier CAP and Royal Navy vessels below aren't ready yet. Argentinean flights are attempting to evade, like they did in the real events, because they didn't had enough spare fuel or air-to-air ordnance to properly fight the Sea Harriers.

Disclaimer: special effects, such as smoke and explosions, are placeholders. Will be completely re-made for final release. Goal here is to test mission functionality from start to end (A.I., weapons, wingmen). The mission is to provide CAP (Combat Air Patrol) for Royal Navy vessels in the Falklands strait.

P.S.: I'm using unlimited weapons and guiding arrow icons in this video, but ended using only 2 missiles and a small amount of 30mm ammo.

Looking good, but the cannons still seem a bit off to me. I'm far from an expert, but aren't those twenty-millimeter cannons supposed to have a much higher firing rate? Like several hundred percent faster? Or are they something older and slower than the modern Vulcans?

yep, the cannons are a bit off. the hud is perhaps not quite aligned. Making changes to that.

Also, adding in clickable pits soon.

I believe that Harriers had a pair of ADEN 30mm cannons instead of a Vulcan 20 mm.
It had a lower rate of fire than Vulcans, but punch harder.

Yes, the Sea Harriers had twin 30 mm Aden cannons, with a 1200 rounds per minute firing rate. The later USMC Harrier II replaced those with a single 25 mm GAU-12 (with ammunition in the other pod), with a 3600 rds/min firing rate.

one interesting thing you guys might not be aware of, that we discovered in our research - bizarrely, the sea harriers cannons had no tracer rounds. So in the game under full re-enactment conditions, there will be no visible tracers.

Cool! I find tracers to be misleading, even if the slower round velocity isn't modelled.
