Description: This fast jet aircraft is used for ground attacks against enemy positions. Useful for attacking enemy structures or incoming columns of enemy units, the Harrier is vulnerable to Soviet anti-aircraft fire. When used in large groups (e.g. 12), Harriers can destroy vital enemy structures such as MCVs - there will be losses however as a result of the light armour. Harriers are excellent for attacking enemy harvesters - ruining the enemy's economy. Also, if playing against Libya, try to use your harriers to destroy any demo trucks in the enemy base. The harrier is a very versatile, effective unit - whilst lacking the severe power of the Kirov, its speed and agility more than make up for it.
Weakness: Patriots, Flak Cannons, Flak Troopers etc..
Rob's Tip: Best use is for killing desolators approaching your army. Hot key harriers (ctrl and a number). Then by pressing the number you assigned (e.g. 1) they will instantly be at your control.
