Something that's baffled me is that Harriers have no access to pre-APKWS rocket pods? I ponder why despite being designed as such, none of the database entries before the APKWS lets the AV-8B (all variants) use rocket pods? Just like it's said here...

It's been raised in the DB requests previously.

All variants of the AV-8B in the database are missing the ability to load the AGM-65D/H/G/K variants of the Maverick, x7 FFAR, x19 FFAR, and four x4 Zuni rocket pods (and any combination of those rocket pods/missiles.) The Night Attack + varaints are also missing the ability to fire the Harpoon ASM and AGM-88C HARM (a maximum of two for both).


In addition, it is capable of carrying up to four 300, 330, or 370 lbs fuel tanks rather than the two the database limits it to.


All the British Harriers (except for the Sea-Harriers) are also missing the ability to load a maximum of four SNEB rocket pods.

It's been mentioned before in the appropriate forum as it's a database error.
