    On a review I read it was a Silverbolt, but they could've been talking about another one.

    In real life it's a SU-47 "berkut"

    Ok guys, you know they don't even have licences for real names but this thing is just based on a Harrier. Little changes in it's look mean nothing. It's the same with the Berkut, it's more pointy and looks a bit like a prototype, but just because it's a fictional copy based on a Berkut.
    Anyway, I still hope it has VTOL capabilities. What would a Harrier-like plane do there if it was just another normal fighter?

    couldnt have said it better...totally agree.
    Is that an exploding gas canister or popcorn?

    We need some gameplay of it hovering to comfirm it's VTOL.

    i realy hope it can take off vertically and something else that realy bothers me in many games with planes.. the wheels are realy ugly..i mean lading gear .... i mean the whole plane looks beautifull and then when you look at the wheels they look like some crappy gray painted wooden wheels that dont even move when you taxi the plane
    not that its realy bad or somthing but its somthing that every games almost has and i think its time for a change so JC2 will have NICE RIMS ON THE PLANES

    Does the Harrier have vertical and horizontal takeoff and landing IN THIS GAME?
    i think so because the blue jet flame looks like its coming from underneath the plane instead of behind it

    now i look at it again I'm not so sure it might just be a blue light under the plane

    Nice spot, I think you're right. Even though it looks like it's pointing away not down, I'm sure it will be adjustable.

    I think this will do VTOL. There's dozens of other fighter jets to chose from IRL so the only real justification for putting this craft in the game is to have VTOL capabilties.

    Yes, that's what I thought. And that pic definitely looks like it's in vertical mode, but not 100% clear. What I fear the most is some kind of dumbed down feature that makes you ONLY take off and land vertically, I mean, automatic mode change and no vertical gameplay. Ahh, my fears...

    i would like it better that way because in sa i have no idea how it decided when it was in straight up and down mode and plane mode, it was so frustrating

    yeah, it was kinda hard to figure out how you change between the modes.
    but as soon as i found out that you do it with the right stick (hold up/down) it wasn't a problem anymore...

    same here and then i used the harrier all the time and it was no problem, maybe theyll use the same "(hold up/down)'" controls as SA maybe hmm

    either way id love flying a harrier in this game whether or not it has VTOL capabilities. Its just one of those thing that make the game SO much better.

    @ Brauny, it seems that YOU are the only person that had troubles on sa. i personally had no problems at all!

    Knowing how great the Devs & MyColdMan are especially on these forums to, why don't we ask MyColdMan if the Harrier Jet has VTOL capabilities?

    Also I hope you can take in the wheels, on just cause 1 it looked so stupid flying a jet and then seeing the wheels out.

  22. #47
    I think you can raise the wheels because on this picture notice it has wheels on the wings, and on the other pictures of it flying you can't see the wheels

  23. #48
    Yeah, I think in one of the trailers you can see landing gear being taken in.

  24. #49
    yes we can bring the landing gear up, theres pic of planes without the landing gear down
